So I found out today that Windows 7 won't initialize (or whatever) GPU's that don't have a monitor plugged into them (explained in more detail here: http://blog.zorinaq.com/?e=11). This causes miners to only see one GPU in my system. Is there any way to fix this without using the dummy plug method in the article above?

Unless you have enough ports on your monitor to plug them in, or another monitor you can plug them into, that's the easiest way to do it.

Dummy plugs are not too expensive or hard.

Dummy plug is the best idea, or you may CF them. 4 CF or 2 x 2CF if they are identical  Wink
