Ok, now you can see why I thought the display went into an external drive bay. The Media Lab comes attached to a 5.25" header.
The Media Lab comes with a remote, software, an installation manual, and a power dongle which which connects to your PSUs, twenty four-pin connector, and to your motherboard. The extra wire connects directly to the LED display to power it.
Decision time, do I use the Media Lab in an external drive bay, or do I take it apart and use it in the nice window I thought was for looks? Well I decided to go ahead and use it in the window just to see how it looks. Taking the LED screen off the header wasn’t too much of a task, four screws and, poof you are there.
The front bezel of the Mozart TX case already has the screw holes to attach the LED screen, so all I needed to do was attach it.
