What is the point to your post? Boost Conky searches? I'd say click bait but no links here. Is that your system? oh, no, you have an SMA8 ? ? ?

Bro, I have been a member since 2004. Yes, this is my new build. Last I checked this was the casemod gallery forum right? So this is a picture of a casemod I did today. Not that hard to figure out eh?

As great as Noctua fans are, I have to say I‘ve never liked their beige and brown two tone colors as default branding. At least they‘ve branched out into black as an option now though. Nice job on the tubing! Why the monitor buried behind everything though? I would have opted to place it against the front panel glass at the very bottom right corner for max visibility and to avoid the glare of the lights. Or maybe even part way up to cover the funky “U” tube connector... But that’s just me. Still, nice clean setup!

Thanks for the clarification. Excellent looking build. Peeps usually say something of value with their post I guess 2 pic and no words except title took me back. I guess the pics are worth a thousand words. I saw the pics in my RSS feed before coming here so, the internal display caught my eye and I came to check it out. I especially like the Matrix background in the display nice work. I suppose I wanted to know more about it. Like where you got it? How much it cost? or How difficult it was to set up? If you are running Linix virtually in the background of Windows to use Conky or what? or If you have a build log somewhere? Probably should have asked instead of trolling please accept my apologies. I assumed you would have realized that, my bad. Don't bother though I can see you are a man/woman of few words. Thanks for sharing!

I'd bet they're angling for a 6800xt/6900xt/3080 with that cpu once available so it would probably block the screen in that bottom slot (also the pump is there).

True - didn't even notice the "U" connector was there just as a temp place holder to keep the absence of a GPU from causing the milk to splurge all over the MB. :D

That screen is probably pretty slim... At a 5" diagonal, I still think it would easily clear a GPU and fit in the lower right corner against the glass if it had some sort of 3D printed bracket to mount/hold it there. Could also go horizontal with it... would be a great excuse for me to whip up and design/3D print a part just to protoype it out if I were building this... Hiding the screen behind all the tubes and glaring lights seems sub-optimal.

It's an interesting idea but when it's all done I wanted it to look integrated into the case.

You could lose the rear fan and integrate the screen there like this (maybe a little less weeby though :p) :

What screen is that? Conky is a OSS app - but having trouble identifying the actual screen in question.
