    Didn't realise so many people spent so long looking at the inside of the computer to justify a feature like this, rather than you know...the screen.

    I have my tower raised up to desk level and find the LED screen on my MOBO quite useful to glance over at to check temps on the fly whilst gaming or benchmarking, this would be a more visually pleasing way of doing that. Most setups I see today are all at desk level to show off how pretty they are.

    Have you not seen any of the custom builds out there? Some proper works of art!!

    I'd normally be so close to pulling the trigger on the Z-3 myself, especially if it can interface with the PC and display things like HWMon data, or a video file... But the deal breaker is the round screen. Really should have been square!!
    If they make a square one, that is a standalone CPU block for a custom loop, I'd buy at least two immediately!!

    I think you'd be surprised how little. The pump motor will make far, far more. LEDs are so efficient now and its not big.

    I've got to be honest I'd love to have this sort of extra but when budgets are tight I'd rather spend another £50 going up a CPU/GPU level but hey I guess some people have the money for the bling! I just stuck £2's worth of (straight from China - aliexpress) LED strips and decided that would have to do.

    The level of Epeen is so high, I think the only thing I could possibly draw on this screen is a giant phallus.

    Such a saddening lack of imagination from such a gifted individual...

    If nothing else crosses your mind, you should at least get an animated HEXUS logo displaying on it!

    I'll wait for the Corsair version, too much software running in the background already to have the NZXT software as well... and I'll probably need a new 280 cooler later this year.

    Have you looked at the Aquacool ones?
    Software used to config, but can be closed once everything is set.
