Just read your article on the new thermal monitoring method. Got any pics of how you mounted that device in a 5.25 slot? I'd like to see if it will work on my case. Mine has arched cut out fillers.

Thanks,

Here are two pictures. The first shows the digital display. It is small enough to mount on the 5-1/4 plactic knock-outs and still not hit the metal part of the case. Notice the retainer tab. That holds it in a cut-out.
The second picture is your standard 5-1/4 knock-out. Cut an opening in it just large enough to pass the display module and the retainer tabs will hold it in.]

See the red tracing. Cut out a hole that will let the display module snap into it. Very simple process

Cool thanks. I think I'll have to invest in one of those. Functional and cool looking to boot. Excellent write up.
