Ray, on that note, are there any plans on releasing an inverse model of the Tri-Color GX? From the little I've read about how to do this, one could make this on their own if they open up the display and swap the screen or something similar (of course that would void the warranty). Does it have somet...

For GX displays, not to my knowledge. My guess is that Matrix Orbital keeps their costs down by limiting the variations of their GX design. It is possible that the cost to manufacturer one without the IR sensor would cost the same or more than just including the component on all of the devices. But ...

NeilF, It depends on the type of fan and its ability to handle pulse-width modulation (PWM) verses more traditional throttling via a flux density waveform. The differences could cause a fan to either not function or generate extra vibrations and/or noise. Not all DC fans can be controlled well using...

Re: Part # for temperature probe WOL Header Connector?

Jim, which Matrix Orbital unit do you have? Also, is this the DS18S20 temperature probe, or a third-party probe? If a third-party probe, what sort of connections are on the end of it?

Also, the fastbitmap.dll binary for .NET that is supplied with the GX series SDK should be able to do this too. I don't use it, but I'm aware it does exist.

juju,

Clark mentioned a Dallas one wire temperature probe. If your application is a bit more electrical-engineering oriented than a PC, and you just want a probe directly connected to the LCD unit, here are some examples:

Re: LK202-25 Serial

Can I hookup Temp Probs to this unit? If so, what and where can I find or purchase the proper wires? To my knowledge, Matrix Orbital does not sell temperature probes for this model. However, you should be able to use this model with an application such as LCDC, which will allow you to view temperat...

Re: Need Help with GLK12232-25-SM-WB

Sure, but the community would need more information to help you. Did you follow the manual's instructions at http://www.matrixorbital.ca/manuals/GLK_series/GLK12232-25-SM/GLK12232-25-SM.pdf ? Did you hook it up to a floppy-style power connector? Does it get power? Did you connect it to serial via an...

Let's say I want to monitor all the cores with the Matrix Orbital does it do it directly from the LCDC program or I need to install the plugin and the software ? I will probably use SpeedFan just to monitor my core temps when I will OC the CPU and make my test. I will not always run SpeedFan in the...

I got the XFX Ultra for the price of an GTX so this is why I bought that video card. Samething for the 8500 C5D I pay maybe $20 more than the 8500C5 memory.

I'm glad you found the problem! May be Matrix Orbital staff can install the software on a test system and confirm the issue? If so, we could add it as a known 3rd party issue.

Thanks. :)

It is my third mod. By mod, I mean complete mod with cutting, Dremel work, painting, etc. I've done little mods on PCs since the early 90s.

I love the GX line, so I'll be using it for both my own, personal mods, and possibly in greater quantities for LAN events and such.

Hi there. Sorry was away for the weekend :) Nope LCDInfo hasn't started again. Still getting the problem - most annoying I must admit. Anything else you can think I can check on? Other than software, we can verify the hardware. How do you have the LCD connected, via an internal USB header on the mo...
