    Hello People,

    I am just wondering, in the fantastic world of PC Mods, what is the best accessory/mod you have ever seen fitted into a 5.25" drive bay.

    I will never forget the one my brother fitted to his Antec 900. It was a small drawer, good for thumb drives and such. Next to the drawer was a car cigarette lighter. The lighter was kind of pointless (he never smokes inside) but I still thought it was a great idea.

    I have seen fan controllers, temp gauges, reservoirs, coolers, all kinds of stuff. I'm looking for something that will actually be useful to fit to my next case.

    Cheers
    Maggot

    Aqua Computer LCD display.

    Can program it to say anything you like! With cover fits perfectly into a 5.25" drive.


    Got one for my build. Can't wait to get programming it!:thumbup::thumbup:

    $125 for a simple LCD? You can get them ready for a 5.25" bay for $35 odd from ebay, or just an LCD with interface for fuck all to wire yourself.

    I don't have a link but you can buy a toaster. I thinking it runs off data. Just don't mistake it for a DVD drive.

    Eh It would be better if it had a more powerful heating element (or whatever toasters use >>). But also gotta watch out for how much heat it would produce. Don't want no melting plastic on cases ;)

    This is OCAU right? just overclock your toast. Then we can make charts to compare given overclocking results to the perfect toast brownness. Then mod the crap out of it so it can make cakes.

    And do you need to cool an overclocked toaster?

    i should have kept my old pentium 4 prescott. that thing can heat up and copper heatsink like a mofo. more than enough heat to cook not just toast but the eggs and bacon as well.

    One ive seen before, and one that i would like to get is an adaptor to convert a molex plug to a 12v cigarette output. Purely so i can plug my esky in at lans, to keep my beverages nice and cool.
