My System Specs

Default "pixilating" on 1 of 3 screens?

Hey guys,

I seem to be having a pixelating issue on my left monitor of my 3 monitors (using eyefnity setup)

Normally the issue only seems to come if I have a game open (So far just tested Starcraft 2 and Alien Swarm). Doesnt particularly bother me with SC2, as it does with multi-screen games)

The issue seems to go away a few minutes after I shut down the game - but as soon as I open the game, it comes back.

Not really sure even where to start!

My i7 930 is overclocked to 3.9ghz, not sure how much a difference that would make. My ATI 5900 is at stock though.

Is this effect screenshottable? or do you have a camera around?

Have you tried switching the monitors to different inputs? That will help you narrow down the problem.

Not screenshotable (doesnt show up in the screenshot). Basically theres either a few (5-10) pixils flickering green. Or if I open a game, 20+ easily.

I'll try switching inputs now.

Edit: Problem seemed to go away once I switched inputs, i'll post again if it starts happening again.
