Eyefinity
 
Hello,

I have a sapphire hd6950, i have 3 monitor hooked up to it but only 2 are showing. I have 2 dvi and one DP... any idea why the third one isn't show.

EDIT: I think its the DP to DVI adapter i am using. Not sure why its not working

What Display port to DVI adapter are you using, unless its an active or a passive active adapter the signal will not go through. If you a really cheap one (some systems come with it) then its a passive adapter which will not work.

Example of passive active adapter NCIX.com - Buy Accell Mini Display Port to DVI Single Link Active Eyefinity Adapter Retail - Accell - B087B-006B - in Canada

AMD Eyefinity Validated Dongles

Above is the link that AMD/ATI certified for Eyefinity, just make sure it is ACTIVE not passive...buy one of those for your Displayport connection and you're golden.

So i got a active DP adapter. With 3 monitor hooked up my temps are around 56 degree idle. Is this ok??

56 is fine, you are running 3 monitors after all. as we speak mine is running at 50 degrees and i just turned my computer on 5 minutes ago.

edit: so mine idles at about 51 degrees.

have you overclocked your gpu?
