    one of them will show HDD usage, and what others will show i dont know yet. but they certainly are NOT just for show.

    Looking good so far :thumb:

    I've got 4 of those analogue voltmeters that I was planning on (eventually) turning into CPU meters... Have you got the circuit diagrams and parts lists for resistors etc that I'd need?

    Cheers,
    Doggeh

    P.S. Sub'd

    well a CPU meter is to complicated to make. better and easier to make is HDD meter
    for example a CPU meter via COM http://www.hwp.ru/article.php?ID=2244
    or a simple version http://people.overclockers.ru/clear66/record152
    sorry its in russian:D

    made a pc speakers and amp for this project. amp uses the TDA2003 chip. the schematics uses chips datashit. all electronic boards and wiring made by myself.
    the sound is and looks are wonderful i think.
