New Here, interested in building custom display panel

Hey folks, been around the PC scene for a long time but just now really getting into serious mods/customizations.

 

Right now I have a G19 keyboard which I've built a nice little sensor window for, works great and I love not having to display sensor info on my main window, just keeps things really clean. However, the old G19 is dying, and I'm looking for a new and better solution for an AIDA64 sensor display output.

 

There are a couple of solutions out there which you can buy a small lcd screen and hook it up as a second monitor, and you just drag your sensor window to it. But I don't like that option, I really like the "native" output that the G19 gives me. In AIDA64 File > Preferences > LCD, it looks there are at least a couple dozen things supported (Abacom, Acer, Adafruit, etc.). I know nothing about almost any of these names/brands except the basic ones like Logitech and Razer. It seems most of them are "component" LCD's that you can put into some kind of enclosure, wall, etc.

 

I'm wondering if any of you have experience with any of these 3rd party lcd screens and setting up a sensor output. I'm thinking I want something roughly 3x5 inches (~75mm x 130mm).

 

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Maybe a 5-inch BeadaPanel would fit your requirements?  You gotta ask the folks behind BeadaPanel about the market availability of the 5-inch version.  AFAIK only the 7-inch model is on market right now, but the smaller one is coming soon.

I've actually been researching all day, and looks like the easiest, cheapest, and cleanest method is with an Android tablet and using the Odospace interface. I can get any size android screen I want (an old phone or larger tablet), has native support, and I can do it all wirelessly!

Already tested on my phone, works perfectly! I have a used 7" tablet on the way that should be perfect.

Thanks for the reply @Fiery

(like I said I'm new around here and based on your title/avatar you work for AIDA64 team? If so THANK YOU for helping build such a fantastic product!!)

For me the problem of a tablet or auxiliary phone is to be charging it, turning it on, etc ... The G19 screen is perfect for this purpose, it is always there. Is it feasible to remove the display from the G19 and dock it on a G930 or newer keyboards?

I don't think you can do that, since the display hasn't got its own USB connection :(
