I actually bought this for my headless unit. It's good to plug in from time to time to monitor BIOS updates or do some light troubleshooting. It was cheap, and it can fit in a pocket. However, I wouldn't want to do any real work on that screen.
I have a Node 804 case, and I'm actually considering making a cutout in the front cover, and just mounting this screen right in front.
This is the specific screen I'm using but I'm sure you could find plenty of other small LCDs on amazon/ebay/aliexpress/etc.
Can find them on amazon. Try this

Do you think a small 60% keyboard could fit in there? I got no idea how big that thing is and I guess versions would be different on ebay. I wondered if this screen from Amazon would fit in this device or a device like this if I took out all the internals and added a chiclet keyboard perhaps with a pi and battery bank on the back or inside if possible: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Elecrow-Monitor-800x480-Display-Raspberry/dp/B013JECYF2/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=5+inch+touch+screen+display&qid=1599248590&sr=8-6
Big thanks to u/theScrewhead for pointing me in the right direction. Here are some details:
I’ve set up an in/out insert for both pre and post fader. That’s 4 1/8” ports. Pre fade in/out goes to the pideck. I plan to use post for a delay send activated by arcade button.
Raspberry pi 3 with pideck distro installed. Very easy to setup
ELECROW 5 Inch TOuch screen... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B013JECYF2
USB stick loaded with scratch mp3s
I think that’s it. Mod took around 2 hours.
It's a Raspberry Pi 5" Screen that I got off Amazon. It acts just as any monitor that you'd connect, except it's tiny and 800x480. The screen is connected via HDMI and powered by USB-A to USB micro-usb. The USB is connected to a random port on motherboard so it turns on and off with the PC. I use Aida64 to create a SensorPanel with custom values chosen to be displayed. Also use MSI Afterburner w/ Riva Tuna Statistics to show the FPS on it.
Is this the same one as this one for almost the exact same price?

If not could you add a model number or something to identify the display?
Went with this one, but not sure I recommend. Capacitive touch only works over GPIO and not USB.

I'm using this panel (they also have other larger options if 5" isn't big enough) with the layout and information coming from Aida64. I wouldn't recommend that route if you don't already have an Aida64 license for some other reason though. CAM, which is what's being used for this aio, is another option, though Rainmeter seems like the most popular approach.
My first shot at modulating my Raspberry_pi 3. I get kicked out of my office space pretty regularly so I need a portable option for learning Linux.
ELECROW 5 Inch Raspberry Pi touchscreen:
Amazon or Ebay. You just type in the search bar, mini LCD display.
Here an example:
The mini display is literally like your second monitor, you can put anything on it. I have NZXT CAM and MSI AFTERBURNER on it so I can monitor my computer temps, load, and clock of my gpu and cpu and overlock when I need to without it taking space on my main monitor.
Dammit. I just trawled my Amazon orders and found the one I bought but it's 5". I'll post it anyway. Someone may find it useful. (To use it involves config editing shenanigans or else it doesn't use the whole display.)
Or if you prefer Amazon, this is what I am using: ELECROW 5 Inch Touch Screen 800x480 TFT LCD Display HDMI Interface for Raspberry Pi 4B 3B+ 3B 2B+ BB Black Banana Pi Windows 10 8 7 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B013JECYF2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_TU2XDbDR1SYAZ
some of those small displays that use the HDMI port can work with just a tweak to the config.txt file.
Elecrow RPA05010R HDMI 5-Inch 800x480 TFT LCD Display with Touch Screen Monitor for Raspberry Pi B+/2B/3B
with this one I just have to edit the /boot/config.txt to get the display correct in noobs or any other pi distro I have tried.
the touchscreen required drivers I think however.
but that specific one is bigger than what you asked for. I find the normal desktop gui hard to use on that 5" screen. some programs do not work well with short displays. That could be worse with a 3.5" depending on the actual resolution.
You'll probably find something cheaper/used on ebay.
You can also look into getting an old LCD they go as low as £10-£12 and mounting it vertically or getting a 4:3 screen.
Can also buy an old tablet and cast your screen to that.
I have This monitor. Pretty much the same thing with my raspberry pie 3b. It's really great. You do need to install the drivers or whatever and calibrate it first before. Also it's powered through the pi.
It's a Raspberry Pi display. It's only 800 x 480 and have less than ideal viewing angles. Definitely not for the image purists, but gets the job done and being USB powered (1A) is a bonus! Not having audio is not a big deal since I'm at work.
Small HDMI screen that can be powered with a separate USB plug do you? Like this I believe it can be powered off GPIO or from the MicroUSB socket.
I think it should work to configure a serial console on a USB adapter. You'll just need to use /dev/ttyUSB0 instead of /dev/ttyS0. However, the console would only be available part way through the boot process, as USB devices are hot-configured by Linux. It would not be available in the GRUB menu or early in the boot process. As others say you would need a null modem cable.
It would be a bit more expensive, but you could buy a small HDMI monitor like this one designed for the Raspberry Pi. I have that model and it works with a normal laptop, so it will probably work for your device. It appears as a standard monitor so you would always be able to see what's going on.
PM your email and I will share the instructions with you via google drive (reddit won't let me format the code right). You need to manually set in the resolution in config.txt You can also find the instructions on the top review of the amazon page but the resolution is written wrong:
Make sure it is 800 480 60 6 0 0 0
NOT 800 400.
If you don't need touch don't instal xinput calibrator and only enter the following in the config file:
hdmi_cvt 800 480 60 6 0 0 0
I bought from a local seller, but essentially it is this LCD: https://www.amazon.com/Elecrow-800x480-Interface-Supports-Raspberry/dp/B013JECYF2
The board is a generic/non-branded XPT2046, which afaik uses Elecrow's drivers.
Connect to your graphics card via HDMI and to your motherboard via micro-USB. Regular usb cable will work. I used a cable that terminated into a dupont header
https://www.amazon.com/Duttek-2-Pack-Motherboard-Adapter-Extended/dp/B072Q1MBSG/ so I don't use up a port.
It is plug-and-play for Windows 10 and Mac and functions just like any monitor (no touch tho). I haven't figured out if I can get touch to work.
I assume you could do something similar with the cheap Raspberry Pi Displays off of Amazon and a spare HDMI port.
I have seen some as low as $35 on Amazon for a 5in pi screen.
Sure thing! It is this screen from Amazon, combined with a 3D printed bracket I found on Etsy. The Etsy store had links directly to the screen it was designed for, as well as to a low profile HDMI cable and noted that a right angle micro-USB cable was needed. I found this cable to keep everything internal (and just made sure to turn of USB power in my BIOS when PC is turned off, otherwise the screen stays on.) The HDMI cable is just routed down the case and plugged into the GPU.
I think this is everything I used:
Mini Breadboards for 5v power distribution
Toggle switch for the fan (there are two in the design but one isn't used)
General 22AWG wire
Here is the Amazon link.

So what you're saying is that if OP hooks up one of these bad boys, he's all set, right?
It seems that your comment contains 1 or more links that are hard to tap for mobile users.
I will extend those so they're easier for our sausage fingers to click!

Is it weird that I recognized that display right away? (It's the same one I use for my Volt Mod project, so I see it every day)
Thanks! It's a 5" 800x480 lcd display made for raspberry pi. It's powered via micro usb and has hdmi input so when plugged to the pc it's just another monitor, albeit very small. I use Aida64 to create a custom sensor panel to display stats when gaming, instead of my screen being taken up by msi afterburner/rtss. It's a bit plain compared to the elaborate panels people have made, but I just like a simple easy to read interface. HERE is the panel I bought from Amazon and HERE HERE it is up close. I tried to place it inside my case but the glass panel on the TD500 mesh distorts the screen image.
Sorry, meant to reply to this earlier.

Oh boy it's a bit more technical than it looks but also really not that bad. You are right, it's treated as another monitor since its running off of HDMI but you also want to power it via the USB header on your motherboard so that when the PC turns off the power to the monitor gets cut.
As far as software you'd want to use AIDA64 Extreme (yes it's the paid version but you can get a legit key off any key reseller for pennies, I got mine for $0.92) that allows you to customize your own panel. You basically make your own panel from scratch (or can take other designs) and then slap it on the mini-monitor, making sure it covers up everything (can be done in AIDA64 settings).
In short you need the following (I'll list what I bought if it helps)
-LCD Monitor 5" - 7"
-HDMI cable + whatever adapters you need
-Micro USB -> USB Header
-Key for Extreme AIDA64 (Can't link since >key resellers)
And a shitload of time and patience lmao
It's a 5 inch screen. Here is the link. I was worried about the quality of the screen but I've used it for a few months now without any issues.
I would recommend using a raspberry pi screen, as it can be powered by a usb connector and can use either an hdmi from your gpu or be run off of a raspberry pi:

Jayztwocents has a video on setting one up as a sensor panel as well:
I was watching a randomfrankp video, tech under $50 and he talked about a 5in hdmi display. The one he linked was OOS but here is one in stock. It just won't function as a touchscreen without the raspberry pi (i think). You can configure it to work just like any monitor and drag your system temps there to display them.
Is it this https://www.amazon.com/Elecrow-800x480-Interface-Supports-Raspberry/dp/B013JECYF2?
What are you using to display the stats etc. on the screen?
Very easy to setup!

It actually wasn't overly complicated. Especially with the Lian li mesh 2 as it has perforated holes at the bottom so you can use them to line up very easily, I'll give you a rough run down
I used the following hdmi monitor off amazon - https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B013JECYF2?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
Along with a draper Dremel tool to cut the hole
Also a 90 degree micro USB came in very handy so I didn't need to cut any extra gaps - https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B003YKX6W2?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
I lined the monitor up on the inside with the HDD case pushed as far forward (to the front of the case away from the PSU) as possible this actually gives enough space for cable management. If you aren't using all your bays you could actually make this alot neater by putting it at the front but unfortunately I am using all 3 bays. I used a Sharpie to line up the place I needed to cut then just get to work cutting the hole which was by far the longest part of the process once the hole was cut I filed the edges and fitted the screen this screen is so nice because it sits flush with the case as the screen has a small back plate no glueing or adhesive was used and it fits snug in there. It needs a micro usb to power it (as above) so for cable managements sake I purchased NZXT internal usb hub to hide the wires then all I did was route the cable through the back into the spare HDMI port and the job was done. Use an extended window on windows to have the screen and drag the software onto the display.
I'm using AIDA64 for the actual screen that photo is still a work in progress you can set AIDA64 to run when windows opens and fix the software monitoring system to that screen so all you have to do is turn on your PC and it's all set up
I really hope that poor description helps!
Amazon, here is one of the options (you have to buy an adapter though)
Sorry, original comment got removed because it broke a rule. This one should be OK.
I actually got my inspiration from a guy with the same case as yours. It might be worth checking out.
This is the screen I got. It's 37 USD.
However, the guy in the video uses this one. And it looks like it's much easier to install. But it's also 55 USD.
The second one I linked, also has side connectors for USB power and HDMI. Makes it look cleaner in your scenario, where there's a cutout to the right of the SSD mount, for easy cable routing :)
