I just got my pc today it's working well so far - some minor problems though(i'll post some pics and my experience in a few days).

 I can't adjust the readings on my temperature/fan controller.The display is off by about 5-10 degrees Celsius, it's annoying. I figured out how to set the clock on it. It seems like I can adjust the temperature doing the same procedure:

 I hold the set key until the hour in the clock flashes, I press set againg until the gpu temp flashes, I then use the up and down keys to adjust it, I press set again to supposedly "set" it, but it just stops flashing and goes back to what It originally displayed. Why can't I adjust the temperature readings like I can the clock?

Also, CP just scotch taped the sensors to their respective spots, is this right? It seems ghetto, is there a certain spot I should put the sensors to get the most accurate reading since I can't manually adjust what the screen says. should I use black electrical tape instead?

When you are changing the temp like you said you are changing what temperature the alarm goes off at.  CP did the same scotch tape thing for me, I don't know if it is good or not.

Oh, that makes sense. I guess I can't really calibrate the display to be correct, oh well it's a kick ass clock.

Also, it seems the knob is more like an on/off switch, as the fans it is connected to don't speed up when I turn the knob up. The fans connected to it can be either on or off, not adjusted.

I think I'll be getting a new fan controller/temp monitor off newegg soon, this one sucks.

One more thing, the backlight can't be turned off, it is too bright when I'm trying to sleep, I can turn every light off except the backlight and the little red light on the card reader.

That sucks dude.  This is why I keep all my computers in my basement and only use my room for sleeping, so I don't need to deal with bright lights lol.
