I got mine in today and have it all set-up...it's awesome! When I get my new camera soon, I'll take some pics! The bad thing is, the panel probably would match a PC-60 black case, but OH WELL!

$99.20 shipped for the whole package, all necessary cables and mounting hardware, and the software is a free downloadable from CrystalFontz' website.

That is sweet, I just ordered.:D Very Cool. Does the software always have to be running and what kind of foot print does it leave on the system?

Yeah, it has to be running or the LCD shuts itself off. The program uses about 10 MB of memory, but the CPU usage is minimal.

Although for it to display temps, you have to use MBM5.

It's very low-profile. I'm about to wrap the internal serial cable in split loom to maintain the aesthetics...it's a rainbow-colored cable as it is. Yikes.

As long as you have two 5 1/4" bays open, you're cool.

Just like a CD-ROM drive. Holes match up and everything.

Well that counts me out. I only have one available bay open. I can have 2, but my compu-nurse takes a bay.

oh well. I'm gonna order the dual digital temp display so i can monitor cpu temps and vid card temps. I already know my case temps run @ 32-34c

You'll probably be able to see inside then, I don't think it'll be flush.

Maybe i can mod some Plexy glass in the edges if they show, and my blue light will shine through the plastic. That will be sweet.:D
