A wonderful kit!

I installed this kit with the help of the instructional video, and it was very straight forward! Display menu controls were a little out of date in the video. I was able to figure it out after a few seconds! Worth every penny!

Nicholas Benton

Bought this kit for a custom gbc build, used the screen and buttons in a different skin but the screen looks amazing and is worth it's weight in gold

Jonathan J Morales
Really Good Kit!

Kit was easy to install and came with everything needed! The bigger screen and backlit make a huge difference!

Laminated is a game changer

No more juggling multiple parts of the screen and praying everything lines up. Absolute cinch to install and it looks gorgeous!
