    FPS Problems with multi monitor setup

    First off i'm not totally sure if this should be posted in the displays or GPU subforum so please move it if I posted in the wrong place. So I have been super lazy in finding a solution to this problem and really could use some help in the matter. I bought an Asus PG278q late last year along with a gigabyte g1 gaming 980ti. This brought my total displays to 3 and I was hoping the gigabyte flex display would handle my setup but I am having major fps issues. My main monitor is the pg278q running at 144hz with g-sync on. Both of my other monitors are just some older 1080p 60hz monitors running on either side, one through dvi and the other with hdmi. The issue is no matter what configuration I use as far as connectors on my gpu or mix of hdmi and dvi for the monitors, I get a lot of fps drop for a few minutes every time I tab in or out of a game or full screen application. The common symptom is my right secondary monitor flickering on and off multiple times when I tab followed by fps hitches on my pg278q for anywhere from 30 seconds to 5 minutes. The worst it has been was when i tried playing league for the first time in a few months and was constantly sitting at 3 fps for 10+ minutes. I don't know if it is an incompatibility in refresh rates with the monitors or if the display combination is at fault. I have done a lot of tinkering of resolutions, refresh rates, inputs into monitors, and plug configurations on the gpu and haven't really found anything that worked. Really hope I'm missing something stupid and don't have to decide between multiple monitors or getting more pg278q's cause they are still really expensive. If it will help I could do a ghetto cell phone video of the issues and post it here. Thank you for any and all help

    FPS Problems with multi monitor setup

    Well after the clean install things seem to at least be better. Can't tell if everything is fixed but I am no longer getting the long lasting fps issue that was causing the majoirty of the frustration. Also the black screen flicker issue is fixed which is very nice so thank you for the prompt help.

    Alright I'll give that a try,

    FPS Problems with multi monitor setup

    Yes I am using the latest driver and to be clear I only play games on the Asus pg278q not in triple monitor surround. The other two monitors are for other applications.

    I have put all monitors on the same refresh rate and resolution independently and the problems still persist.

    980ti and Z77 chipset issues?

    Well it seems to either be a driver problem between card and MB or just a DOA card from the factory. No matter what I try I get error code b2 when using the 980ti and the system goes into endless boot loop. Plug the 680 back in and it boots right up and I am now typing this using my machine (in a breadboard setup on my kitchen table). I updated my bios for the MB and am going to try one more time to see if anything changes but I don't anticipate it posting. I am planning on testing the 980ti with the new MB, CPU, and ram when they arrive on Monday to verify the card is complete junk before starting the RMA. It's never easy...

    980ti and Z77 chipset issues?

    So I ran into a problem on Wednesday while upgrading my gtx 680 to a 980ti and getting a new cpu aio installed as detailed in this thread. http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/492667-computer-cant-boot-losing-my-mind/#entry6603307 I felt like the MB must have died but after around 5 hours of messing around with it I got it to work again. I ended up removing the battery on the MB for about 5 minutes and then the thing started right up without an issue. I plugged my 680 and ssd in and it posted and loaded windows fine. I had ordered a whole new mobo, cpu, and ram kit for $850 (5820k and x99 with 32gb of ddr4) so I was trying to decide if I should cancel the order or just upgrade my ivy bridge setup. This is where things got interesting. I decided to test my new card again just to make sure it worked. I hooked it up and started the system and it posted fine but just before it loaded into windows the computer shut down and went into the same endless boot cycle with the drmos light coming on as before. So now I don't know if my card is causing the problem or if there is a compatibility issue with the parts. I'll leave my current, new, and future builds below and am open to any known information. Current (100% working) MSI z77a-gd65 I7 3770k Swiftech h220 (done with this PoS) Gtx 680 Nzxt hale90v2 850w psu 16gb ddr3 ram 500gb ssd and 1tb hd New build (compatibility problem?) - gtx 680 - h220 + gtx 980 ti (gigabyte g1 gaming) + h100i gtx Future (parts on the way) - MSI board - 3770k - ddr3 ram + Asus x99 USB 3.1 + i7 5820k + 32gb ddr4 Thanks for any help or insight

    980ti and Z77 chipset issues?

    The psu has worked flawlessly for two years and when plugging the 680 in it runs great. I don't know that much about psu's but I'm sure the 850w is enough to power the system so I'm confused what could be wrong with the psu.

    So are you saying it would be a cpu and gpu problem then?

    Computer can't boot, losing my mind

    Well I guess the MB somehow died. I've cleared cmos on both bios. With no cpu cooler and the MB outside of the case it still only turns on for a second and then shuts off and cycles indefinitely. This upgrade now looks like a full new system at this point. Edit: Calling the MB dead. Dug out my old 2500k to see if my 3770k was the issue and still same problem. The alarm led at the top of my msi z77a gd65 near the activity leds shines red and then the system powers off. No clue how I killed it but I'm pretty sad right now.
  11. I am in need of help quickly. I upgraded my gpu and cpu liquid cooler and now cannot get the computer to boot. I replaced the old components and tested the build in the kitchen and it booted up fine with no peripherals connected. I then moved it back to the bedroom and plugged everything in and now it turns on for a fraction of a second then powers off and repeats. It is still doing this with just the cpu, h100i gtx, motherboard, and one stick of ram. I'm about to take the h100i off but wanted to see if anyone has an idea. Sorry for poor format but I'm stuck on my phone for now. Also just jumped the psu and it works fine. I'll give more components out soon, just need to calm down. I've been trouble shooting for over 2 hours. Thank you for any help

    Going to pull out the MB and try to boot it on the box and see what happens.

    Computer can't boot, losing my mind

    I guess it could be that but how can it boot fine, then after not touching a component and moving it into my room, just die? The only thing I did was close side panels and plug peripherals in.

    HTC One M8 Review & DUAL PHONE GIVEAWAY!

    I just love the build quality of the phone. Cannot be matched by plastic
  16. Hello all I am here to get some help with a budget build for a friend. I am getting him away from an old console and into computer gaming and he needs a rig that can do that for him. He has a 7 year old macbook pro and sees my overdone 2k rig and gets scared about costs. I was hoping to build a smaller rig for 1k with a matx board and decent graphics card to get him in the door. I was looking at 760ish performance for graphics. I just want him to have a rig that is solid and can handle any game a max or close to max details right now. If possible I also want to get a boot drive ssd but I know how hard that can be on this kind of this kind of budget. Thanks for any and all help

    Help with 1k Budget Build for friend

    He will be playing most AAA games, minecraft. Not going to worry about the monitor right this second as we haven't even nailed down a final budget yet. I just think a smaller tower and matx board to keep the build compact will work well for him.

  19. So I have never ever ever, like ever, even considered the thought of getting a tablet before and would laugh at anyone that would try to convince me otherwise. I thought they lacked power and usability and just were not useful at all. This is coming from a guy that still sees no value in a laptop and someone who's desktop weighs 50 lbs. However I have begun to see usage scenarios for a tablet and want to start looking into purchasing one. First off let me say that I have that as much experience and knowledge I have on desktops and have absolutely none of that when it comes to tablets. All i know is that I have a GS4 phone so I will probably want to stick with android for the tablet. The tablet will be for recreational purposes mostly but I kind of like the idea of those attachable keyboards. At the same time I don't think that I would ever really need this for my line of work unless it had a really solid camera on it that can record high quality video (for context I am golf professional and would only really use it if I could record clients golf swings and analyze the swings with a decent amount of precision). I want to be able to watch streams on twitch cause that's my main source of entertainment (cause who really still has cable nowadays). Other than that I just need to learn a bunch about what tablets can do since I haven't the slightest knowledge yet so any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks and fire away

    Tablet Virgin looking for insight

    The thought of buying an apple product doesn't sound like something I want to do again. I bought a imac 5 years ago but didnt really enjoy the experience. plus I hate itunes and all that icrap for that matter. I dont really know if the 7 inch screen is big enough or not but the reviews are kinda of hit or miss for the nexus 7
  21. So im helping a friend build a new comp that is going to run multiple monitors (not while gaming) and be generally used mostly for gaming. I put together a rig for $1500 which is around what he wants to spend on the parts. I feel its decent enough but I dont know what psu is best or what ram timings make for a good purchase. http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=23496246 Let me know what you guys think and feel free to recommend any changes. He will be buying this in the next few days so sales are a plus.

    Rate my build for a friend

    When did that happen? I have a h220 in my rig, should I be concerned? Also ill look into different motherboards and ram. Id rather not get him radeon card just cause i have always had problems with their drivers and interfaces.
  23. So im making a trip to a micro center in the next few days cause a 3770k is $100 below newegg price. So im going to make a few upgrades to my system at the same time. I will probably pick up a switch 810 and an AIO cooler for the CPU. I was wondering what would be better a h220 for h110? Also I have a h80 right now and I was wondering if if I could mod the thick radiator to work with the h220 which could be beast. Also I really don't need a full size tower for my rig but I just feel like the build quality is better than the mid towers I have bought in the past. If anyone can recommend a better case that could fit either cooler for $200 or less I would definitely consider it. It could be full or mid size. Thanks for the help, I work 60+ hours a week and don't have as much time as I used to for keeping up on products and tech.
