So if you put the gigabyte card back in the problem persists? If so then for sure it's the card. Also if your gpu temps are good, slightly restricted airflow shouldn't be a problem, your new case has good airflow anyways right?

Ok, I just swapped cards again, the Gigabyte detects only one monitor and the Asus all 4.
The case is an Asus tuf gt501 with 6 intake fans...I'd think airflow is ok.
Many thanks for your help  :)

Thanks again for your help.
I actually do have a spare 2080...almost forgot. So I put it in and everything works fine...done no changes...just works.
What do you think it's the likelihood the other one is faulty?
I mean it can't be the cables or the monitors...they obviously work. Maybe the Gigabyte RTX2080 is a bit more picky in regard to the driver. Dunno if that makes sense at all. The one I've got in now is an Asus one.
So I've got to make a decision on whether to fiddle around with the Gigabyte or just get it back to umart.

Another question, the Asus is a dual fan one and these guys are really fat. So there is soundcard, a Soundblaster Zx covering pretty much one fan entirely. The gap between them is just about 5mm. Do you think that's a problem?

You should be able to select your input from the monitors menu, either hdmi or displayport, if they have multiple inputs. Trying one at a time is suggested just in case there's a problem with the gpu running all outputs (maybe faulty).

Thanks again mate.
It's a great tutorial. So I've done all that. The monitors are set to display port, old driver uninstalled with DDU and then the latest  one installed. Tried them then one by one as well. However, it hasn't fixed it. During the 2nd race the Tuesday before I noticed a burning smell, parked the car and checked everything. I couldn't figure out where it was coming from...thought I just fancied it. The screens were working fine the rest of the race and race 3 as well.
Maybe there was a problem with the GPU which just showed a week later when I turned the computer on again.
Looks like the GPU is f'd. Again, it's pretty much a brand new one. What do think? Any other things I should check before bringing it back to umart?
It will probably take ages again to get a new one :-(

Are the monitors set to displayport input, have you tried one at time disconnecting the others. If it was working before but not now I'd suspect a windows update bork, try running DDU in safe mode and reinstall the latest nvidia driver.
Thank you very much :-)
I don't know if they are set to displayport and I don't know where to do that.
I will try connecting them one by one...haven't done that yet.
The system was working for quite some time without any problems.
So DDU is uninstalling the current driver, right?

Hi all
So I run a quad monitor setup, triple span and a separate one.
I've been doing that for a number of years with different graphics cars and monitors and this is the first time the triples are not showing up in the Nvidia control panel. I run Win10, the triples are all on display ports directly into the GPU, which is a pretty new new Gigabyte RTX2080, the 4th monitor is on a HDMI port and that's the only screen working atm.
Cables are all properly plugged in. The setup was working fine so far...till I turned it off after Tuesday's races.
The monitors are all turned on. The triple screens show a message 'no input signal'. They've actually always done that after turning on the PC, but then it disappeared and the screens were working. Now they stay black and Nvidia can't detect them. Turned this thing on/off multiple times, unplugged the monitors...all that doesn't help.
Any advice would be awesome.

Thanks for the season Wally. Yes, there was a lot of close racing...and that's great.
The cars were fun to drive. I liked driving the Primera and Hyundai as well even though I wasn't really fast in them.
Race 2 was a bit of a bummer...no idea what I was smelling there.
...GT3's would be my favourite for the next one  :)

I wonder what Helicorsa's resolution is, because Car Radar's is 20mm. That's right folks, (barring any other mistakes I happen to make) I am repeatedly driving within 20mm of other cars*#. Judging from encounters with other drivers I would say Helicorsa's margin of error is over a metre and VR users seem to need four or five metres clearance to be safe.

*and that is the actual collider be it accurate or not.
#and of course I am leaving more wiggle room than that, to allow for said mistakes.

20mm, that's fantastic. I watched the replay of us, Wally, Bacchulum and me, going side-by-side. To be honest, I don't really know what to say about it. One thing is clear though, car radar should have indicated me being next to Bacchulum and not behind. I was there one the inside and Bacchulum shut the door pulling in towards the apex. Crewchief would have told him that there's a car to the right. The Nissan is a lot faster there, I saw a gap and went for it...wasn't dive bombing.

I won't be taking the starts anymore.
There's obviously something wrong with my Car Radar.
2 weeks running it has shown Killa behind me yet it results in side to side contact.
If I can't trust my tools, I can't be safe in a pack.
Sorry, so it was you again. I thought it was Wally. Have you tried Crewchief? I'm using it and I really like it. He's telling you if there's someone next to you or, when overtaking, once you're clear. I rely on it with a bit of a buffer and it works.
Yeah, the races, in short, Phil has done a great job and I pretty much the opposite. Just couldn't get past him. Tried different lines...then made mistakes...it was frustrating. Then of course other faster cars caught up, passed me easily on the long straight, which meant I lost additional positions. That's all Phil's fault ;-)
However, there was a lot of close racing, which was fun.
Hope I got enough money to get the beemer again.

My starts were pretty average, but that has made the races more interesting on the other hand.
Bacchulum, when getting myself next to your left on the outside of the track I thought, would be great if I could let you know that I'm there, because you had things going on on the other side as well I assumed. With PTT that wasn't an option...too busy. Going straight close to the edge of the track I find it hard to judge how much space there actually is. I thought it was pretty close so all I could do was going straight and hope you're aware and don't move left. Yeah, that's what happened then...unfortunately.
Sorry about the spin in race 2 blocking off the track. This thing on cold tyres at the start was always tricky.
Yeah, the beemers were some strong competition for me...we had some good close racing.
The Citroen has won the races, not really me...let's see how we go in the Nissan next for the 1st time.

Seems like saving money by picking a slower car doesn't work. Just checked and can only afford the Hyundai even though I saved 10k by picking the BMW where I could have taken the Citroen for Donington. Wally, so there is a reset after every race, right?!

Race 3 I got hit at T1, which wasn't too bad...
Sorry mate, I really did think I fully passed you.
There was something strange happening last night before the first race. Volume turned down by itself and later during the 1st race I noticed Crewchief wasn't working. No idea if that's related, but I couldn't work out what's the problem between the races.
So, not having Chrewchief certainly contributed to me screwing your race there. I was deliberately cautious in situations like that all night...not enough obviously.

Racing was pretty good. That stupid mistake in race 2 cost me a few positions...it took me ages to get back on track.
Phil was just too fast. Still had a bit of close racing and side-by-side action for a short time.

See how much money we got left for the next round...


I was badly prepared, but it's great to do some racing again after this long break.
It turned out that the hairpin was my weak spot...probably got more than 15 passes there  :(
However, it was fun racing...and I'm the richest guy in the field...haha.

Cheers for the feedback, Wally. The Nissan is a lot faster for me...bad luck, tried to change, too late though.
