Multiple Monitors on ASUS Mobo

    Multiple Monitors on ASUS Mobo

    Its so simple...I'm confused.

    ASUS P8 Z77-V LK mobo has 1 each VGA, HDMI, DVI-D & Display

    At first I was not confused thinking I could use VGA or DVI for my monitor and HDMI or VGA for my TV

    Then I started reading about 'Display Port' and confusion set in.

    1. -> Can I just use HDMI & DVI off the board at the same time to use 2 monitors ?

    2. -> or Do I have to use an adapter and 'Display Port' for the 2nd monitor ?

    If your mobo doesn't have a display port, you don't need to worry about it.

    but it does have a display port .

    Sometimes I just get confused reading about new stuff. It looks like I can use any 2 connections on the mobo.

    But using the 'Display Port' with an HDMI adapter and connecting to the HDMI port on my TV would give a better picture.

i7-3770 on Asus P8Z77-V mobo: CPU cooler noise
Just wondering if anybody knows for sure the answer here. I just built a Core i7-3770 for work on an Asus P8Z77-V LK mobo, and when I first turn it on, it seems like the CPU fan kicks on and is loud for the first 10 seconds or so and then it slows down to the point where it's practically silent....

Desktop Tile Across Multiple Monitors
Currently, I run Windows 7 Pro on dual 24" monitors, and life is good. :):) In Win 8, if I open the desktop tile, I presume that the default action is to open the full-screen desktop app on just 1 of the 2 monitors. I'm guessing that the "Start" screen remains on the 2nd monitor. Can I have...
