Currently preparing to pull the trigger on the below Perfect Pixel QNIX QX2710 LED EvolutionⅡ 27" Matte from the seller Greensum. Although i have not shopped around to research all the various sellers average prices this one appears to be fair. Unless someone can direct me to a better deal.
After reading quite a bit of this thread it sounds like a roll of the dice regardless of which seller the buyer chooses to purchase from.

As of late seems people have had issues with dreamseller and greensum. I can't personally testify to that though.

Normally I'd say don't worry about Perfect Pixel but $309 is a good price. I thought they'd be generally higher by now too.

Ok here are stand photos (portrait *just* fits at top height):

It's almost feels easier on the eyes.

That is the weirdest thing ever. My 560ti also runs at full clock speeds but it barely affects anything for me. Whether I run 96hz 24/7 or 60hz my temps at idle are identical at 49c and nothing changes, fan speeds stay the same etc. Don't know why you are having that weird issue.

@brightbus the 500 series is weird like that, its not actually running at 100 percent 24/7.

Better airflow mayhaps; it's definitely wierd--that you notice no diff.

Well I don't know if its just me but every thing stays exactly the same except of course the screen gets negligibly dimmer.

When I run at 120hz my main card clocks go up to 500/1250 but when I am at 60hz it's at 300/150..

I had that problem with the 560ti when i was running dual monitors,there is a bug that does not make them down clock properly,
I had to use nvidia inspector and set it for multi display power saving mode

According to the monitortests.com thread explaining how to overclock these panels (from post #1 in this thread) they say,

"500-series GPUs will not clock down when idle if the pixel clock is greater than 404 MHz. The Idle Screen Saver can be used as a workaround.."

I don't make the rules, nor am I smart enough to change them. Just letting you all know.
