I was reading about the joys of having a small secondary display running on your computer, not functioning as a full monitor, but perhaps integrated into the case, used to display system performance and stuff for overclockers.

I'm not an overclocker by a long way, but the idea of having a little extra monitor for stuff did seem cool in a supervilian kind of way.
Or maybe just for a MSN window, or for the dvd conrol pannel while watching a film...

SR have one, 7" TFT, for 115ish at the moment.


Does anyone use a small secondary monitor? If so what for?

Ah. As I suspected.

Thanks, down.

Never had to know about it up until now, to know enough about how to run a decent computer better than the average folk.

I've seen people mention it quite alot, but what does "overclocking" mean?

Heh, I was thinking the 15" models wouldn't be that much more. But that just doesn't seem as cool :^)


I've seen LCD sceeens that fit in a 3 drive-bays gap, fully featured.
But I can't see you getting a decent view of it without straining your neck (unless your case was under the monitor of course).


I think I'm just in a gadgetty mood, but I'd still like a 2-screen display.
3 if you count the projector I'd like to have hooked up to the pc at some point.

And a small display sat next to the corner of the main one just seems right, better than 2 big separate screens.

The LCDs integrated into cases are rather limited; they're usually used for temperature monitoring, but the purpose can range from showing the current song playing in your playlist to a crappy custom logo. Of course, it'll have to be of a certain type; those just showing temps in number form are the most limited.

If you want a monitor that shows full colour pics, vids, ebooks etc. then it'll have to be clumsily attached via cable, such as the one SR are selling. I'm not aware of any fully featured LCD screens that are compact enough to fit on the PC case.

Not too hot on case modding, I'm sure someone else will give a better answer.

Just so you know, you can buy 15" TFT monitors for 115.
