ATI 6970 booting issue w/ DP

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I recently got an ASUS 6970 GPU and discovered this wierd issue out of it
I'm running eyefinity over 3x1 landscape monitors
If i boot by rig and the GPU has miniDP conncted (which is needed by the 3x1 config) that GPU boots with Fan at 100% RPM and no video at all (the PC boots in background btw...)
If i unplug the damn cable, boot, plug it back all is cristal clear and works...

Pretty wierd indeed, was wondering if anyone else met this issue as well

My rig is
ASUS p8p67 evo (sandybrdidge)
ASUS 6970 2G GPU
Intel i7 2600k
SSD Vertex 2
etc...

Issue was solved by cable replacement.
It turns out that DP cables shall be carefully selected or issues (this was a bit wierd btw) can arise like sizzling of image if cable is not well shielded
