Not that anyone is reading this, but my new baby came in. So far so good. Still have to now buy some adapters to run 3 monitors. I have a 30 and 24 x 2. Gonna see if i can run the screen across all 3. unsure. Maybe someone is out there.

It will work but it will drop the resolution of the 30in down the that of the two 24in. So all 3 will run at 1920x1080 or 1920 x 1200 depending on which 24in you have.

Heat shouldnt be to bad just bump the PCIE fan up before you game. Say 30% - 40% and see how hot they get. You can go more if you need to but it will start to get loud around the 40%+ range.

Re: Tri crossfire 6950's

thanks for the reply! atm trying to figure out how to get them set up so i can actaully use all 3 monitors!?!?! lol..

i have the main 30 with a hdmi connection but the other 24's are dvi and on the gpu its mini display port. so i know i need at least 2 of the passive dvi-mini displayport adapter, just unsure if i need a the active (usb ) hdmi-minidisply port to run the 30 in eyeinfinity. they really should have made it less... confusing!!!

thanks and if anyone knows how to run this, let me know. I want to take the 3x6950's for a full ride!!
