So to do this I need to buy longer DVI cables to reach the entire length. As in side monitor cables go sideways to the middle monitor, then into the wall, so only one hole smile.gif

My question is, my monitors currently overlook to 96hz without issue, how much of a difference does cables make? I want to buy the cheapest I can find of DVI, but is that fine, will I have issues, will the longer length cause issue? Note, I will be getting I think 10FT cables, if not longer to accomplish the clean inside wall run.

I think @ 10 feet, you'll be fine with AWG24 cables with ferrites (the bumpy things!) monoprice is a good place.

Pretty close to purchasing this QNIX 2710 evo2 and setting it up to 120Hz. Currently have Galaxy 660Ti 3GB versions in SLI. Crysis 3 all ULTRA 2560x1440 averages about 50fps. Found someone that wants to buy my white crossover 27Q. Had the crossover since they first came out almost 2 years ago. Everything works great but had to replace the LED driver REV 00 after 4 months because of the mosfet issue. I know the LG S-IPS panel in my crossover is 80cd/m2 brighter than the SAM PLS panel. Does anyone seem to notice it being a little dimmer than most panels at max brightness? Also what video board manufacture and LED driver do they use? I know the crossovers were manufactured with Digital Waves Korean pcb's. I am just curious if anyone has torn theirs apart to replace any components.

Does anyone know how to get nvidia surround running with overclocked screens? i have 3 xstars @100Hz ive tried removing the 60hz option in cru but when i go to enable surround my pc bluescreens, i can only get it to surround at 60hz.

Should also mention im running 2 670s in sli, two xstars connected to the 1st gpu, the other connected to the 2nd gpu, running full patched 331.65 on windows 8 64

Well I'd assume you'd have more luck. I will have 1 GTX 770 running all three monitors, but I am planning on upgrading the card. And well if Surround has issues, plus I don't like how it basically takes over windows, I might have to go with AMD on this one.

yeah nvidia surround is pretty terrible on windows 8, some things work some dont, mostly its just awkward window placement, the drivers are terrible

AWG is American Wire Gauge. The lower the AWG the fatter the cable. From Spartan F8's tests (results reported in this thread), it seems that the wire gauge is less important than wire length. The shorter the cable the better for overclocking these monitors, though it seems that cable quality varies quite a bit, even with the "same" cables.
