I just setup a new PC with the new ASUS P8Z77-V PRO/THUNDERBOLT and am currently able to get one of my two thunderbolt displays working. The second one is outputting sound, but no video...

Any ideas?

If this question's accepted answer is correct, you should be able to use two displays with up to 1920x1200 pixels, or one with 2560x1440/1600 – Daniel Beck Jul 26 '12 at 8:41

Are you daisy chaining your displays from that single Thunderbolt port? I don't think that will work.

Only Macs with dedicated graphics are known to be able to drive two thunderbolt displays on one cable. The on-board Intel graphics may not even be able to output that many pixels. (The spec says - Supports Thunderbolt with max. resolution 2560 x 1600 @ 60 Hz)There's also the protocol problem of sending two streams on one cable.

You'd better connect your second monitor via another port.

Asus website: Data transfer rate up to 10 Gbps; Daisy-chain up to 6 Thunderbolt devices – Daniel Beck Jul 26 '12 at 8:39
But the monitor is based on the display port protocol, not the PCI-E protocol.... Some Thunderbolt-enabled Macs don't even allow you to daisy chain monitors. – Jul 26 '12 at 10:53 which is the confusing piece... I'm contacting their "support" today to see if they can provide any final answers. – RSolberg Jul 26 '12 at 14:47
Diasy chaining (with DP1.2 MST on all devices) should just work... but you share your bandwidth. – Hennes Jul 21 at 16:42
