Sorry I am really new to eyefinity with mutli cards a little black duck a b U Graphics card a b C Monitor October 9, 2012 1:14:09 PM Is this the guide you've been following? >> http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/344343-33-eyefinity-s... But in answer to your questions, 1) Not while they're in crossfire mode. 2) I've heard single link works best with hdmi adapters. Just one thing, make sure your displayport adapter is active (I think all hdmi ones are anyway, but not sure) f847 October 9, 2012 1:26:43 PM thanks for your reply, yes that is the guide I have read. Therefore I should better get a single link adapter? And how do I find out if the displayport adapter is active or not? f847 October 9, 2012 1:53:03 PM I guess I have figured out what active displayport adapter is f847 October 9, 2012 2:02:48 PM I don't seem to find many active displayport to hdmi adapter. So will these do the trick? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sapphire-44000-02-40R-Active-Di... + http://www.amazon.co.uk/Male-Female-Converter-Adapter-C... AdioKIP a b U Graphics card a b C Monitor October 9, 2012 3:18:54 PM I run an EyeFinity + 1 setup (4 Monitors). The way you will need to connect is as follows. 1.) HDMI to HDMI (Just a normal HDMI Cable) 2.) DVI (Dual Link) to HDMI (DVI and HDMI both carry the signal the same way, the only difference is the connectors. You DO NOT need an adapter for this, you simply need a DVI to HDMI cable). 3.) Displayport Adadpter (changes displayport to DVI), and from here another DVI to HDMI cable. I have seen Displayport to HDMI adapters but have heard of several people having issues with them in EyeFinity. Get one of the adapters said to officially work with EyeFinity like below. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... To answer your other question, in Crossfire, you can only use the connections on the primary card. All outputs on the secondary card are disabled. ferris847 October 9, 2012 7:51:43 PM thanks a lot for the reply, i have now ordered pretty much the same set up now the great randini a b U Graphics card October 9, 2012 8:21:18 PM monitor 1 dvi monitor 2 dvi or hdmi monitor 3 display to dvi or vga amd supported eyefinity adapters Eyefinity Setup Guide Can't find your answer ?
