Ok so thanks to CallsignVega, I was inspired to debezel my monitors to make the distance between my bezels smaller.<br>
For those of you who dont know, the ASUS VG236H is the 23" model of their 3D monitor line aka 120hz monitor (all that really matters).<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://cdn.overclock.net/2/29/29a3d41c_asus-vg236h-4-b.jpeg"><img alt="600" class="bbcode_img" data-id="884587" data-type="61" height="600" src="http://cdn.overclock.net/2/29/600x600px-LL-29a3d41c_asus-vg236h-4-b.jpeg" width="600"></a><br><br>
By removing the bezel the distance was decreased by about 2cm, which is about half of the original distance! When I overlap the monitors, it is even more then that.<br><br><span style="font-size:16px;"><b><span style="color:#008B00;">*Note</span></b></span> For cleaning the back of your debezeled monitor, as it is exposed to dust now, use compressed air ONLY! Make sure that the monitor is OFF before spraying it!<br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://cdn.overclock.net/4/49/495f39be_compressedair.jpeg"><img alt="300" class="bbcode_img" data-id="884653" data-type="61" height="300" src="http://cdn.overclock.net/4/49/300x300px-LL-495f39be_compressedair.jpeg" width="300"></a><br><br><span style="font-size:36px;"><b>To get started:</b></span><br><br>
I will show you the VERY easy process of removing the bezel for one of the monitors and the final result. <span style="color:#008B00;"><br>
*Note: I take no responsibility for any damage that you may do to your device while following this tutorial.</span><br><br>
This is what I had to work with<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://cdn.overclock.net/0/0f/0fece0d1_LXVvm-Imgur.jpeg"><img alt="448" class="bbcode_img" data-id="884589" data-type="61" height="448" src="http://cdn.overclock.net/0/0f/600x448px-LL-0fece0d1_LXVvm-Imgur.jpeg" width="600"></a><br><br>
As you can see, measuring the bezel, it was about 2 cm long, which in total was creating a huge 4-41/2cm gap because of the monitors shape.<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://cdn.overclock.net/e/ee/eed6e315_LI9xi-Imgur.jpeg"><img alt="448" class="bbcode_img" data-id="884593" data-type="61" height="448" src="http://cdn.overclock.net/e/ee/600x448px-LL-eed6e315_LI9xi-Imgur.jpeg" width="600"></a><br><br>
So getting started I needed three important tools for each monitor:<br><br>
- Electrical Tape<br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://cdn.overclock.net/b/be/be381776_electrical_tape.jpeg"><img alt="398" class="bbcode_img" data-id="884596" data-type="61" height="398" src="http://cdn.overclock.net/b/be/359x398px-LL-be381776_electrical_tape.jpeg" width="359"></a><br><br>
- (2) Flat tipped screw drivers<br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://cdn.overclock.net/b/b5/b59476a3_Flat20tip20screwdriver.jpeg"><img alt="64" class="bbcode_img" data-id="884597" data-type="61" height="64" src="http://cdn.overclock.net/b/b5/359x64px-LL-b59476a3_Flat20tip20screwdriver.jpeg" width="359"></a><br><br>
- (4) Washers<br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://cdn.overclock.net/2/21/21efc7bb_Washers2.jpeg"><img alt="543" class="bbcode_img" data-id="884598" data-type="61" height="543" src="http://cdn.overclock.net/2/21/600x543px-LL-21efc7bb_Washers2.jpeg" width="600"></a>

<b><span style="font-size:36px;">The Steps: Part 1</span></b><br><br>
So I first started using the flat tipped screwdriver in order to gently pry off the top plastic. It comes off very easy. Take your time and go very slow! Do not rush or force it. If it will not go easy use the second flat tip to help you.<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884601/width/600/height/448/flags/"><img alt="448" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="884601" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884601/width/600/height/448" style="width:600px;height:448px;"></a><br><br>
The second flat tip, is essential when you are trying to remove the bezel off of the corners. These are by far the trickiest to remove. Do not be scared that you are breaking something when you hear the popping noise, as it is just the plastic unhooking from the groove on the other side of the plastic.<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884603/width/600/height/448/flags/"><img alt="448" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="884603" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884603/width/600/height/448" style="width:600px;height:448px;"></a><br><br>
Once you get part of a corner, you will begin to see the bare monitor underneath.<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884608/width/600/height/448/flags/"><img alt="448" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="884608" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884608/width/600/height/448" style="width:600px;height:448px;"></a><br><br>
Keep popping off the sides using the same strategies and eventually, you will get your monitor to look like this...<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884610/width/600/height/448/flags/"><img alt="448" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="884610" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884610/width/600/height/448" style="width:600px;height:448px;"></a><br><br>
Now if you look closer, the front panel buttons are still attached to the plastic. You can just easily unhook them and get the front panel piece off. Just leave it dangling for now...<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884613/width/600/height/448/flags/"><img alt="448" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="884613" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884613/width/600/height/448" style="width:600px;height:448px;"></a><br><br>
Measuring the length of the bezel now, we can truly see that it has been reduced by half!<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884614/width/600/height/448/flags/"><img alt="448" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="884614" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884614/width/600/height/448" style="width:600px;height:448px;"></a>

<b><span style="font-size:36px;">The Steps: Part 2</span></b><br><br>
Now what we want to do, is cover up that silver bezel, because when using triple monitors the silver will become VERY distracting. Instead of worrying about paint or conductive materials to paint your monitor, electrical tape is non conductive and if done carefully looks great. Actually the people that have seen my monitor don't even know that I removed the bezel until they look at the back! I'm telling you electrical tape is the way to go.<br><br>
Make sure that as you apply the electrical tape that you take your time using your thung to press down the tape, while using your other hand to guide the tape in a straight line to cover the silver. Make sure to not get any of the electrical tape on the screen!<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884615/width/600/height/448/flags/"><img alt="448" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="884615" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884615/width/600/height/448" style="width:600px;height:448px;"></a><br><br>
Once you are done it should look something like this...<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884616/width/600/height/448/flags/"><img alt="448" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="884616" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884616/width/600/height/448" style="width:600px;height:448px;"></a><br><br>
Here is to confirm the distance once more...<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884618/width/600/height/448/flags/"><img alt="448" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="884618" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884618/width/600/height/448" style="width:600px;height:448px;"></a><br><br>
Now as far as that panel goes that is hanging on the side....<br><br>
If you turn over your monitor, you will see a giant gap on the back. Put two pieces of electrical tape to cover part of the metal and place the board over it, taping it on with electrical tape, as show in the picture.<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884625/width/600/height/448/flags/"><img alt="448" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="884625" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884625/width/600/height/448" style="width:600px;height:448px;"></a><br><br>
Next, we want to prepare the monitor to be mounted on a VESA mount.<br>
So for each screw we need a compatible washer....<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884622/width/600/height/448/flags/"><img alt="448" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="884622" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884622/width/600/height/448" style="width:600px;height:448px;"></a><br><br>
With these pieces you want to have the washer and then the screw, going into the back of the case, being on top of the attachable mount.<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884627/width/600/height/448/flags/"><img alt="448" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="884627" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884627/width/600/height/448" style="width:600px;height:448px;"></a>

<b><span style="font-size:36px;">The Final Product</span></b><br><br>
Overall I think the modification to the monitors looks great! It is something you really have to see in person to enjoy!<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884633/width/600/height/358/flags/"><img alt="358" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="884633" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884633/width/600/height/358" style="width:600px;height:358px;"></a><br><br>
Here is a look at each monitor debezeled:<br><br>
Left<br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884634/width/600/height/448/flags/"><img alt="448" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="884634" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884634/width/600/height/448" style="width:600px;height:448px;"></a><br><br>
Center<br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884635/width/600/height/448/flags/"><img alt="448" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="884635" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884635/width/600/height/448" style="width:600px;height:448px;"></a><br><br>
Right<br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884637/width/600/height/448/flags/"><img alt="448" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="884637" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884637/width/600/height/448" style="width:600px;height:448px;"></a><br><br>
And for those of you that do not believe how much of a benefit this is, here is a measurement of the gap now, and the width of the original bezel...<br><br>
Monitor Gap (After Debezeled) = about 2cm<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884638/width/600/height/448/flags/"><img alt="448" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="884638" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884638/width/600/height/448" style="width:600px;height:448px;"></a><br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884640/width/600/height/448/flags/"><img alt="448" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="884640" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884640/width/600/height/448" style="width:600px;height:448px;"></a><br><br>
Original bezel (1 monitor) = about 2cm<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884639/width/600/height/448/flags/"><img alt="448" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="884639" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/884639/width/600/height/448" style="width:600px;height:448px;"></a>

Thanks for this, I own a single VG236H and heaven knows what kind of monstrous GPU setup you would need to get 120fps @ 5760x1080 in more demanding games.<br><br>
Still, 2cm bezels are just far too much (not blaming you or anything, you did a fantastic job) and the very presence of bezels still ruins any potential plans I could have for surround displays. Oh bezel-free monitors, where art thou...

Hey no problem, always trying to find ways to contribute when I can, and thanks so much for the compliment!<br><br>
The distance is not too bad and you seem to get used to it. Currently I have made my side monitors overlap the middle one so that the bezel ios only 1cm, which really is not bad at all if you sit back.<br><br>
As far as the GPU's currently have two EVGA GTX 670 4GB SC cards incoming, and that is hoping it will do 3d at an acceptable frame rate!

Job well done. Shouldn't we be able to do this with most monitors?</div>
</div>
<br>
Yeah I would assume that almost all monitors would follow the same tutorial, but I can't guarantee anything. At least for ASUS monitors, they are pretty much all packaged exactly the same as this one.

I did the samething with 3x Asus VH236H's about 4 months ago and did not like it, the vinyl tape I used was near impossible to get perfectly straight and that stand has a base that is obnoxiously large, I opened and did not damage at all the bezels with solely my hands, I tried the first with a screw driver and it was way worse and left a mark and slight bend on one.<br><br><img alt="IMG-20110819-00042.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y199/mtbtricksmtb/IMG-20110819-00042.jpg"> that series of asus monitors just had terrible bezels, I switched to 3x xl2420t's and they are possibly going on a chief ktp325b<br><br><img alt="KTP325B.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://ebay.koala-tea.com/dh/KTP325B.jpg">

Still, 2cm bezels are just far too much</div>
</div>
<br>
As for the 2cm concern, I overlap my monitors now...which is a 1cm gap.

Curplyp<br><br>
to be honest one gtx690 is not going to have enough cram to run most games on max settings. I would either invest in two gtx 670 4gb SC cards or even two GTX 680 4GB FTW cards. THe FTW cards blow away the gtx 690 sli'd and is around the same price point.<br><br>
Here I need to show you something...<br><br>
I took some pics of me playing skyrim last night...look at my Vram usage<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/977278/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="977278" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/977278/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 263px"></a> <a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/977277/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="977277" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/977277/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 263px"></a><br><br><br>
On low areas without a ton of pressure it is using at least 3gb of Vram on EACH card.<br><br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/977279/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="977279" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/977279/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 263px"></a> <a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/977280/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="977280" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/977280/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 263px"></a><br><br>
In higher areas its using almost 3.8gb of Vram on each card.<br><br>
If you are spending all that money on a gtx 690 and it only has 2gb of vram dedicated for each port, you will never have enough Vram to run games at max settings triple screen. I am almost using the full 8gb of Vram. To be precise i'm using 7.6gb of vram.

Hey thanx man, I enjoyed the tut.....+rep<br>
I'm planning on the following monitor at a reported 0.35 inch (9mm) bezel:<br>
<a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=overclockdotnet-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fgp%2Faw%2Fd%2FB005LN1JEC%2Fref%3Dredir_mdp_mobile%3Fcamp%3D1789%26creative%3D390957%26creativeASIN%3DB005LN1JEC%26linkCode%3Das2%26redirect%3Dtrue%26ref_%3Das_li_ss_tl%26tag%3Dhttpwwwnearbu-20" rel="norewrite" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B005LN1JEC/ref=redir_mdp_mobile?camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B005LN1JEC&linkCode=as2&redirect=true&ref_=as_li_ss_tl&tag=httpwwwnearbu-20</a><br>
Would be interesting to find out if I can shave it down even more after I remove the bezel.<br><br>
I like how you set up all 3 monitors on a single stand. Can you ellaborate on that please? I'd do the same.
