Matrix Orbital MX610 PLED - Page 4 of 4


Let me preface this by saying that there is a learning curve to the LCDC software. I probably played with the software for 6 hours or so before I felt really comfortable creating my own command files. Command files tell the interface what to display and how to display it. Once I got the hang of it, though, the software gets the job done.

I created individual command files for each of the functions that I wanted monitored by the MX610. The first one I created was called the loader. It gives me basic information on the state of my machine, including CPU, RAM, and temperatures. I also see data on the weather. Not that I really worry about the outside weather when I'm sitting in my office gaming, but it's nice to be able to find out the future forecasts without having to visit a website. The loader command file also sets up events, which cause an action when something occurs, like the loading of a file, a temperature rises above a certain level, or a key on the keypad is pressed. By default, I have it shut off my CCFL and my extra case fans, but I can turn them on at the press of a key. All of my command files were set up to give a visual indicator which command file is opened by lighting up an LED on the LED Bus. With the built in keypad interface of the MX610, the key press events were set up to switch to other command files.

The command file for gaming was designed to display information about the CPU temperatures and frame rate from FRAPS while I am gaming. For this particular command file, all of the additional fans are turned on when it loads.

Useful Information

A command file was designed for CD/DVD burning using the Nero Burning ROM plugin. Another command file was designed to show track information about songs playing in iTunes.


I LOVE this device. This is the coolest case mod that I have had the opportunity to play with, bar none. Kick-ass! At a price of $109.95 USD, the Matrix Orbital MX610 is well worth the price. Due to the steeper learning curve of the software, this product just misses a Grand Slam, but I do give it back-to-back dingers. If you can get over the steep learning curve, you will find this is one of the best case modding devices out there. Thanks to Matrix Orbital and Nick over at Crazy PC for providing the review sample.

Feel free to provide feedback or ask any questions about the preview in this forum thread.
