Dima KuzmichWhen importing .MOV file they change color??? Why and how to Fix

So I build a new computer Specs are:

Asus z87 PRO

Intel i7 4770K

2X Nvidia GTX 770 2GB (SLI)

32 GB of ram

Monitor is a NEC 27" Spectra View II, that i calibrated to sRGB profile.

2nd monitor (really cheap) Samsung sync master SA550 24"

Nec plugged in to one video card with Display Port and the other monitor to the other video card with DVI

and im running AFTER EFFECTS CS5

So i use canon 5d mark II with Magic Lantern installed on it also a CineStyle color profile, shoot full hd video at 24 fps.
And when i open the files with QT they look good and FLAT but when i drop them into after effects they become more saturated and contrast. Also when i move the video from one monitor to the next the colors also change Nec shows flat and Samsung shows contrast(you can just see the colors jump).

So far i tryed:
remove one video card.
turn off SLI.
recalibrate monitor.
test the cameras and footage.
reinstalled AE
change the AE project setting/color profile to sRGB

But nothing works.

I need it solved as fast as possible, any help would be really appreciated.
