That link contains fan controllers/temperature LCD's which is what you were wanting?

Cooler Master Aerogate II, Fan Speed Controller, Black (http://www.ascent.co.nz/mn-product-spec.asp?pid=119893)

Enermax UC-A8FATR4, Multipanel Fan Controller (http://www.ascent.co.nz/mn-product-spec.asp?pid=146266).

This was what you were after?

no not fan controllers, the things im talking about are just general dot matrix screens (or some are lcd that you can tell toshow anything, music playlist, computer specs anything)

Dick Smith have these in stock,

2 line 16 character varieties they come in non backlit for approx $26.00 inc GST and backlit for around $45.00 they come with full wiring instructions and how to use with the Winamp mod.

will need a little bit of modding to fit into a plate in the CDrom drive.

the catalogue numbers are Z4170 and Z4172

Have a look.
