525 Bay Temp Monitors

Recommended Posts

Just got two 5.25 Bay Temperature Monitors from work for 10 bucks each. Top LCD's show CPU and MOBO Temps in F, bottom LCD's show HDD and Video Card

Here's the overall front

They look a lot better than the pictures show (pics taken on my camera phone)

But what do y'all think?

On a funny note, I checked Speedfan (which I don't really like, btw) after the install, and it showed my HDD temp as 250 Celcius! 250 C = computer on fire. It went back to normal after a reboot though

After looking at the pictures again - I decided that I will change out the green LED's on the fan controller to blue ones (either tomorrow or next week)

Nice looking mod.

Why the F temps and not C??

just out of curiousity.

why do temps always have to be in Celcius? Especially when you figure, at least in the states, we figure temps in Farenheight.

Considering we're the only people to do things in Farenheight - that's why everyone's used to Celcius. It's an easy conversion anways (F-32) / 9 * 5

I guess it's more convienant since motherboards have the temps in Celcius in the hardware monitor
