Well, you've got 4 monitors to drive out of 2 graphic cards, which are not from the same generation and not really similar in performance. :) Which is not easy. For the boot logo, if the monitors are different resolutions, that might also be why you don't get any logo whatsoever.

Also, as an advice, you might be better off removing one of the graphic cards (I guess the GT 430 would be the less powerful one of the two) and getting some sort of adapter or something to power the 4th monitor, if you really need that many monitors. :) The difference in clock speed and performance might be one of the causes, if not THE cause of you waiting so long. Basically they're out of sync. And I might be very much wrong, but instead of pushing your system up and helping it perform better, you're actually dragging it down, by adding that extra card.

Anyway, to answer your question, no, I don't think this will fix anything for your setup. BUT there is only one way to find out. Take all the necessary precautions and give it a try.

Also, if you want to fix your second stage boot logo (issue described on the first page), what I would do is this:
1. remove one of the cards and choose the more powerful one (would be the logical approach) :D. You can always chose the less powerful one, but I don't really think that's gonna help much, if at all. :))
2. unplug all the monitors but one (you can pick which one you want).
3. give it a try as it is, to see if you have this exact issue or you have another one.
4. if you do, try the steps in the tutorial and see if that makes a difference.
5. if it does (hopefully) you can try adding up monitors (you might need to set multiple monitors as default, which I never tried, since I only have one, so I don't know if it would work, but it might) and see what happens.

Bottom line: start small. Start with the minimum points of failure. And add up elements to the equation. See how that affects the overall performance.

For this thread, a multi-monitor, not to mention multi-graphics setup is a a bit off-topic. :)) Since the tutorial is neither meant for, nor tested, under either one of those conditions.

Hey, thanks for the info either way. I'm gonna give it a shot. I know it sounds nuts but I really need my screens… but I might be able to get away with three if I set them up differently. How you like this for a setup [emoji12]

Hey guys. I've got an issue that may or not be related to this one, but I do know for sure that I don't have a second stage boot logo or loading bar, so hopefully fixing that will help fix my issue.

After booting through the first stage (takes a matter of seconds off my SSD in UEFI boot mode), I'm greeted with black screens on all four of my monitors (GTX660 driving three, GT430 driving the other one) and it just hangs there for a good couple of minutes. Once that passes and my screens come back, I'm at the desktop and everything is business as usual.

Think this might be fixable by correcting boot logo? I'm not all that interested in the boot logo, really, I'm just tired of twiddling my thumbs while I wait for my more-than-capable machine to reach the desktop [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]

My GUI is a lot smoother on a GTX 650.

Only issue I'm having so far guys is that every login I get stuck at a black screen with the spinning beachball for about 30 seconds to a minute before it continues to desktop.  The Finder also crashes when I go to restart or shutdown.  


Also having USB issues but I believe that's just related to it being a DP and needing to have the bugs worked out.  


Anyone else?
