HowardDrake, did you find an aluminum/silver one? I'm thinking of swapping mine out for one of those, or similar.
The LCD thermometer I have is at http://www.lian-li.com/product.php?acti ... &prdid=798
They also have a port bay that would have been great three years ago, with ports for MOUSE, USB 1.1, IEEE 1394, GAME PORT, SPEAKER, LINE IN, and MIC IN. Most of this is already on the front of a Shuttle.
There is a lot of neat stuff to be found in the 5.25, like the speaker/USB combo at http://www.cmicomputer.com/cgi-bin/quik ... duct=spusb
, but noticeably absent from the 3.5 arena. I know it's a smaller bay, but do we not live in an age of miniturization?
