Installing the unit into your PC could not be easier. The LCD is already mounted in the PC bay so all you have to do is mount the PC bay into your case. Even the screws are provided to do this.
I've mounted it in the Lian-Li PC6099B case that I reviewed a while ago, as you can see the black of the PC bay isn't a bad match for the black brushed aluminium of this case. Once it was mounted I just passed the USB cable out via one of the PCI blanking plates at the back of the case and plugged it into one of the USB ports on the back, this isn't a very tidy solution, but a cable is available to connect the display to an internal USB header if you have one. As soon as the USB cable is plugged into the motherboard, you are greeted with the default splash screen, telling you what unit you have bought. This screen can be customised and we will be doing that later on.
Once your PC finds the display you should be greeted by a little popup telling you that you have indeed just plugged an LCD in.
You need to select 'Install from a list or specific location' or windows will try and be helpful and install a driver for it that doesn't work.
You need to select the 'USB_Drivers' directory on the CD that is included with the kit.
These drivers are unsigned by Microsoft, no surprise there, seems that nothing is signed by them. Just press continue to get on with the installation. Once that one has finished you will get more hardware found under the name of a 'USB serial port', to install the driver for this you just need to go through exactly the same process as the driver is in the same directory. Then you need to go into your device manager and look under the Ports section to see what COM port the new USB serial port has been assigned - this is the port that you will be pointing all the usual serial LCD display software at.
The CD that you get with the kit has a couple of useful resources, a version of LCDC, Motherboard Monitor, and the Display tuner, as well as guides to installing the unit and LCDC.
