Hi,

I see a lot of these monitors at the top: http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/images/cs/haf912/blk_400.jp...

No not the screen/monitor, but the thing thats at the top of the case. What is that for and what is it called?

Does it monitor the cpu and video card?

more than likely its a touch screen fan controller, because physical dials are too hard to turn

Ya, my hands get to cramped when I turn the dials. And they are always slippery from the lube I use. lol. Touch screen FTW.

That's a matrix orbital. It's a bay insert that plugs to USB. You can program it to display temperatures, fan speeds, also news tickers, weather, etc... Pretty advanced stuff. The new one is 2 bay touch screen graphics like you see in the picture.

You're right. A matrix orbital would be way cooler though.
