    Dunno if I should put this here but it involves this chassis so oh well :p

    I'm trying to use surround with this laptop and 2 external DIY monitors. I had to use an EDID override to make all the screens act the same since the laptop display was always greyed out inititally in the surround config (I'm using the external display's .inf settings, the plus side is that my standard refresh rate is now 165hz :D ). Now the problem is surround itself. It will only allow me to select 2 screens instead of all 3. I can't choose the 1x3 topology and am stuck with either 1x2 or 2x1. The laptop display is still greyed out but is always selected meaning I can still choose any one of the two external displays to use in surround. So anyone know how to make surround allow for 3 monitors?
    On Windows 10 Pro 1903, GPU drivers is 430.86

    Well one is my actual laptop display :p
    The other two are connected to LCD Controller Boards using displayports to type C cables.

    Can you show your control panel when viewing them? I assume they are all the same resolution/bit depth/refresh rate?

    Yeah they're all the same resolution, bit depth and refresh rate. I used the EDID override to make sure of that.
    I have no idea how some of the other screen got in this screen snip xD

    Halp halp halp!
    I wanted to do a fresh install of Windows since my laptop kept crashing on boot up for some reason (Throttlestop had to be manually activated so it wasnt my undervolts) so I tried to install it from USB. Problem is that the USB keeps disconnecting when trying to reinstall it so it never works! I keep getting an error saying it needs drivers! The USB works fine in other devices.

    HELP!

    Okay looks like using a different USB drive is allowing it to reinstall. All is not lost! :D
