First "Build", and now I've added a LCD stat screen.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Not "technically" my first build, I've been putting computer together for a long time mostly for my own office, but this is the first time I made one where being aesthetically pleasing was a thought, in fact it's my fist PC in maybe 100 or so that even has a window.

 

Parts:
Screen - https://amzn.to/2WyZyKo
HDMI Cable - https://amzn.to/2WI4DF1
USB to Molex - https://amzn.to/2Kh5x4Y
Molex to SATA - https://amzn.to/2JaupZ8
Plastic Dividers - https://amzn.to/2XzqONv (to make an enclosure for the screen)

Yup, Just an HDMI LCD running off the Internal "VR" HDMI port on my 1080Ti so I dont even need to run a cable outside the case.

 

Software is my own concoction just for creating custom stat screen UI's that I will be releasing once I polish it a bit more.

 

I had a build video, though the concept is basic, but OBS decided that when I was done that it didn't want to save the video lol...

Actually the software I wrote doesn't bake that stuff in, it's a full blown WYSIWYG drag and drop editor that allows a user to draw a gauge/video/image, select a sensor to tie it to and thats it 😉 I wanted people to be able to customize it any way they see fit that suits their case and theme.

Nice! I am going for a similar project, but instead of a display, i am planning on going full analogue

Like a Pi or Arduino based setup?

Yea, I have a spare board that I was thinking about using to power my screen, went this way instead though. What are you using for gauges? Automotive?
