Hello , I have a Very unique problem you wont find By goggling it Ha.

I have been running infinity for the past year with no issues... I just recently updated my pc with new Mobo and SSD.

MY old specs never has this issue... my old set up was...

850 wat Ocz gold edt power supply.
three LED samsung 2 ms BX2331 21 inch monitors

1090T 3.2 AMD
1 128 samsung ssd *NEW*
four 1 tb Hds for storage
6990 4 gig MSI video card

hooked everything up like normal and BAMM as soon as all three monitors turn on the windows screen , CCC: host stop working error..

I have tested the monitors individually all work fine solo Or in pairs But if i attempt to plug in a third monitor the DVI port in. * CCC HOST error *

I only have two mini display port - dvi adapters so i haven't tested if the third monitor give me n error if all three are in mini display ports...
