Need help with triple monitor setup

SOLVED

Hey guys. I'm trying to finally get 144hz on all three of my Asus VG248QE monitors paired with my PNY GTX1060 6GB XLR8 card. I tried different cable combinations and it won't allow the last monitor to stay at 144hz. I tried 3x DP, 2x DP 1X DVI+, 2x DP 1X DPtoDVI, 1x DP 1x DVI 1x DPtoDVI.. you get the gist. All drivers up to date. I forgot to mention that DP to DP on that third monitor gives no signal.... I might have to borrow my friends monitor to see if it will work and if it does I will need to get another monitor. I can always use this one for my other residence.


Any advice to get that third running 144hz would be great. Thanks.

Try to swap monitors and DP cables around to see whether the problem is with the GPU, cable, or a monitor, but it's not like you're going to get 144fps with 3x1080p on a 1060 anyway, and these aren't freesync/g-sync screens, so what's the point in running all of them @144Hz?

Thanks for the help. I did some digging online and for some reason Asus monitors have an issue where they lose the DP signal/connection and need to have the power cable disconnected. I did that and it worked perfectly. All three running at 144hz.
