In CCC where you are going to activate them, how many monitors do you see?

If you only see 2, there is a problem with one of the connections to the monitor.

If you see 3, you need to click the triangle on the main monitor window area, click on Create group, click 1x3 or 3x1 which ever you perfer (Most like 1x3) and then click ok and accept until the group set up is complete. If you want bezel correction (I do) to through the steps to correct it.

Have you tried disabling all but the main monitor and then seeing if you can create a group?

Are you using a DVI to VGA adapter on your DP adapter?
I did that and it wouldn't work. I got it to work after I removed the adapter.

The dp to hdmi adapters are very problematic. Can you go dvi instead?

Im starting to think that these display ports that claim to be eyefinity/AMD approved, but dont use USB are approved for use as a first or second connection. The third connection however needs to be the type that use a USB connector for power conversion.

It seems the only type of "Passive" (eventhough other passive that claim to be active) adapter that works are the VGA type.

They work, it's just that the dp to hdmi ones suck hard. Never use dp to hdmi, go dp to dvi if not direct to hdmi.

As far as adapters you have the usb powered active dual link. Then the unpowered, aka passive active single link. The former work great, it's just that ppl have problems figuring which end is up and which ones they need.
