putting a screen inside my tower

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I have a Corsair 760T with an ASUS P9D-c\l4  currently running WHS2011 (ya I know I haven't figured what to switch it too). On the board is a vga header and I have a 15'6" LED screen from a dead lappy so I what I want to do is mount it to the acrylic side panel as I have done with the temp gauge in the picture, and use the header from the board for signal.From what I have read I take it I'm going to need a control board any idea where I would find the part for the header and do I have to use a vga connection on the controller or can I use one of the other formats 


A little info about the system this was a project that took two years to complete I was contractor for a cleaning company and hurt myself bad spent about 18 months before I could walk properly again, so money at this time was extremely tight.

Corsair 760T bought at Salvation army for $10 had no drive cages but did have an 280mm AIO liquid cooling system which I sold for $40, A four disk hotswap in the top 5.25 slots, a four drive cage out of a Coolermaster HAF912 (screws right to the front) and last but not least a two drive cage from an old HP tower plus five 2.5 drives down the side. Currently there are 14 drives in it 13 sata 1 usb.

ASUS P9D-C4\L4 (big ASUS fans in this house lol) with a PIKE sas card and a Xeon E3-1220v3 cpu and 8 gigs of ram. This board has four Intel i210 network connections which are teamed to give a 4 gig connection 

and a few led mods. 

P.S the white LEDs only come on when door is open and the last picture is where it sits on my desk hence the reason for putting the screen in the tower

Would look a lot cooler if that cable management wasn't in violation of the Geneva Convention.

Had to do my mans dirty like that. But yeah it would look super nice if the cables were managed a bit better.
