It is MSI Afterburner on-screen display. Works great.

for me the game will launch, but the menus will not show up when in span mode.
I can play BF3, but not at native resolution. It buggs out at native resolution, screen goes black, icons all messed up, only 2 GPUs out of 4 work. I have to run one resolution step down in eyefinity and then everything works great. Hopefully DICE will fix this.

I was debating about doing exactly what you did, but wanted to see if anyone attempted it first (I'd love to see if someone attempts this with the Samsung A950D panels, but I'd assume the result would be the same). I guess Samsung didn't want another multi-monitor VESA setup that would compete with their MD230X3/MD230X6 setups.
Do you still plan on providing more info like a how-to guide with detailed pictures of each step required for this mod?/hack? We could benefit from knowing the following before tearing about a new expensive monitor:
1) Seeing the back sides of the bezels noting where each clip is.
2) What exactly did you need to do to get "electronics all modified"?.
3) Where did the VESA mounting points come from and how many are you using on each display? Were they under the bezel or did you tap those yourself?
4) Are there any other important things to know besides being careful with the ribbon cable between the display and base?
BTW, do you have pictures of your previous 3x30" setup?
Also, the Samsung Experience store in Manhattan has Korean versions of the A750D and A950D 3D LED LCD monitors. I couldn't find any other shop that carried them in their store.
Finally, has anyone used Nvidia 3D Vision and Nvidia 3DTV Play with these monitors?
The Samsung 950D panels would be a poor choice. The LCD housing border frame under the bezel on those are asymmetical. Sorry I did not take any super detailed pictures as I didn't think many would want to go as far as I had. The circuit boards all need to be removed from their base and custom mounted behind the screens.
For the VESA mounting, it is a custom off-angle mounting based on the default stand mounting hole locations for the non-VESA default base. Depending on far you want to go, you can remove the plastic bezels and/or additionally remove the inner metal frame that holds the LCD in place over the back-light as I did. Then you have to custom secure the LCD panel so it doesn't fall out, not damaging the end LCD ribbon tabs.
If you are interested in doing something similar, get the 750 and not the 950 series.
Here are some pictures of my 3x 30" setup:
