post #3171 of 3943
I've tried:
3 on 1 7970 - 2xDP>DVI and 1 DVI for eyefinity, 1 on a 2nd 7970 (works with crossfire disabled)
3 on 1 7970 - 2xDP>DVI and 1 DVI for eyefinity, 1 on Intel on-board (when crossfire is enabled)

I also tried using an HDMI>DVI adapter in an attempt to run 4 monitors off card #1, but it doesn't appear I can use DP, DVI and HDMI outputs at the same time.

From what I can tell, as soon as I enable crossfire, accessory displays are disabled when plugged into an ATI card, whether it be the 1st or 2nd card. Windows and CCC don't see that monitor. With CF enabled, the onboard works fine, besides monitors getting resized+repositioned when going into full screen games. This issue was not present with my primary GTX275s, and when I tested some 560tis and 670s.

I can't find a solution other than physically moving monitor cables around to get the accessory display to work with CF enabled and then to run 3+1 off ATI cards with CF disabled.

Thought i'd share this 3 x1 + 1 all 1280 x 1024 combined res of 4152x1024 for the main eyefinity panel. running off a single Asus matrix platinum hd7970 now, first had it running on an 5850 and a nvida for the utility screen but with W8 it f'd up the drivers too much.

i'm really pushed for space so I made a custom wall bracket for the 3 and hung the Dell upside down off the cupboard above biggrin.gif

I was thinking of moving the monitors on the connections. Well, if you're up to getting an MST hub, you can run your primary displays off the hub and the accessory monitor off one of the dvi or dvi/hdmi connections. Nvidia does the accessory monitor easier in Surround imho.

Very nice!











Discovered one of my dp cables is bad and the monitor is loosing signal. Strangely, Eyefinity 5x1 is still active tongue.gif. Ordered a new cable but it has yet to ship. I don't mind waiting since it was $6 as opposed to buying one from the local Fry's store (~$20-30).

Here's my setup just after I quickly and super easily triggered 5x1 and before the cable went out:




Btw, I'm 100% its the dp cable as I moved it between monitors and they showed the same symptoms. I'm glad it wasn't a bad display port on the Dell or the gpu smile.gif.

EDIT: I didn't want to get an MST hub because that would be $150 for the hub, another active adapter and shipping.


Well, tried another step in troubleshooting.

Just to be sure everything worked, I swapped cables and plugs around with the accessory display. 1 of the 4 monitors does not work with the HDMI>DVI adapter (with my luck, the accessory +1 display), with either of the 4 DVI-D cables, in either of 3 HDMI plugs i have between 2 7970's and the onboard, but the other 3 do. Maybe DVI-D has something to do with it, but its weird that that one monitor does not work with it.... I ran into a similar issue with an electronic sensor on my work truck last year.... I guess some things are just picking with what you do with them.

Now I'm running the accessory off the DVI port and my 3 eyefinity displays off DP>DVI and HDMI>DVI.

SO this whole time and all the headaches it's caused me was from 1 monitor with a semi-faulty port or board in it. I hadn't tried this exact combo because I tried it with at least 2, usually all the other 3 of the other 4 identical monitors. I hate technology sometimes.

I'm so angry I could punch a baby. mad.gifBut at least it works now. It doesn't seem to be pushing the accessory monitor to the far left now so far, either.

I can't remember if I mentioned it in this thread, but if I did I don't think anyone responded. What I want to know is how to prevent my monitors from getting rearranged. Most of the time I am running a 3+1 setup. I want the 3 in Eyefinity on the left, and the +1 accessory monitor on the right- it is actually above to the right, I keep it on the far right because of this issue of being moved.
(the accessory monitors also end up getting re-sized to unsupported resolutions as well, but that is another issue)



Make sense?

Now, whenever I enter or exit a full screen 3D accelerated game; This can be launching the game or alt-tabbing back into it, something puts the accessory monitor on the left.



Its either windows resolution settings or ATI drivers, I'm leaning with ATI because I never had this issue with Nvidia.
Besides just being a pain in the rear, this breaks multi-mon function in DCS.
For one, the cockpit is on the left 2 of the Eyefinity setup instead of centered across on all 3, and the right eyefinity monitor loads to the DCS menu screen, which does not function so I have to force close DCS via the task manager. DCS needs the left most monitor to be the primary display in multi monitor setups (multimonitor here being Eyefinity as a single display, and the accessory +1 monitor acting as a 2nd monitor).

I never had this issue with Nvidia. Even when the accessory gets ID'd as #1. ATI also takes forever when resizing and/or re-positioning monitors and moving the task-bar. I can live with the latter, but the whole repositioning monitors ruins games/sims like DCS when it repositions/resizes monitors and just makes using Eyefinity a real pain.

Has anyone else encountered this? Is there a solution/work around? Is there a sure-fire way to always make my Eyefinity ID as 1? I just did a reboot and now Eyefinity is 1|3 and the accessory is 4... So I think this will prevent it from getting pushed to the left every time I exit a game or enter DCS.
I have tried creating a preset with a hotkey thinking I could press it to switch the monitors back before DCS fully loads, or when I get back to the desktop from gaming, but it doesn't work for DCS, and I still have to go about repositioning everything on my desktop, and sometimes re-sizing the monitor to the proper resolution. ATI seems hell-bent on putting monitor 1 on the left at all costs.

I have the same problem, mostly with steam games, Some titles cause what you are describing, for these titles I have to disable the 4th monitor in CCC desktop management before I load it, it then runs in eyefinity fine but it kinda defeats the object of the 4th screen!, I havent found a solution, Deus ex wont even detect eyefinity if i have the 4th screen enabled. I think the problem lies within the way each individual game handles the resolution, far cry 3 I have to disable 4th because in the maps it decides I have a 6 panel, but the game itself runs fine in eyefinty!??

Glad you worked it out thumb.gif. Just stay away from babies for now tongue.gif

Btw, my Accell hub was ~$120 w/ tax and shipping from amazon. I've heard some ppl getting them for ~$100. Club3D has there's for ~$130 on newegg. Its pricey but you can always sell it for a good amount in the future if you end up not needing it. Its been a treat so far for me and my five monitors. I couldn't really see why amd did not have this ready sooner (or the industry tbh).

The best solution I have found for running the 4th or 5th accessory screen is to just run it off my mobo video output.

EVGA has one now that is $100 after rebate IIRC. It might be $80, $100 retail or something like that.

If I get new monitors I've been considering using an MST hub. I could even do 3x2 if I get 3 more 1280x1024s.

Some nice monitor porn in this thread. Sign me up.

I have an Eyefinity array with 1 ASUS VH236H and 2 ASUS V238H, 2ms response time. These are the "Evo" monitors used to play Street Fighter at the Evolution national fighting game tournament. Resolution is 5760x1080.
Pictures (Click to show)






I'm running these off a Sapphire 270X Vapor-X for the time being, my Sapphire 7970 Vapor-X is under RMA. Looking to upgrade to an R9 290 Toxic if they come out, otherwise I'll get the R9 290 Tri-X.
