  • FS: 20x4 USB LCD. Crystalfontz. in UK

    Hi all, long time lurker- first time poster. Got some great info from these forums Unfortunately i've never finished the car PC and had to sell it off this month to help pay for my insurance renewal. This is the last bit left:

    Crystalfontz CFA-635TMF USB LCD

    LED backlit 20x4 LCD. (Blue backlight, white text)

    Bought to use in a car computer project which i never finished, but useful for connecting to your PC in a spare 5"1/4 drive bay. It can be set to display system temperatures, fan speeds etc. and even RSS/news feeds from the internet. The built in buttons allow you to power on/off the pc with it, or any other functions.
    This includes the LCD itself, the ATX power cable, the UBERSCAB board with temperature probes, connectors, interfaces for dallas/maxim 1-wire devices. This is only available from over the pond and i paid extortonate import duties when i bought it! The LCD itself sells for $70, the scab board for $35, misc cables $5 and $35 for shipping; so around 75 (+import dutues~25) all in to buy new. HOWEVER there may be a problem with the scab board, i've not been able to get it working recently (Sat on the shelf for ages), so i'm selling this just as the LCD alone (Which works without the scab- that simply allows you to control cooling fans, read the temp probes etc) and the SCAB board as a possible bonus!

    So 50 for the lot delivered in the UK or make me an offer.

    I have a picture of everything thats included i can email. Best to contact me by email: matthew.c.austin *at*
