5700xt crashes with multiple monitors

Discussion created by khitsicker on Dec 6, 2019

I have a newly purchased sapphire 5700xt nitro and it is constantly crashing / having hard lockups and reboots when I hookup monitors in the following configuration:


HP LP3065 2560 x 1600 dvi - active dvi to displayport adapter.

Samsung 204t (x2) 1600 x 1200 in portrait dvi - dvi to hdmi adapter.


I am running 19.9.2 drivers and I have turned off VSR and vertical refresh. the option to turn off freesync looks to be greyed out as the monitors do not support it. I do not have eyefinity enabled.


when I have just the HP on the display port or the HP and a single samsung plugged in I do not experience crashing.


the rest of my system is as follows:


intel 4770k @stock.

asus z87a.

32gb ram @stock.


I am upgrading from a sapphire r290x which preformed flawlessly with these monitors. I did perform a clean wipe with DDU before installing the new drivers.



any ideas?
