Angry Case temperature read out in Fahreheit

Help Please. OS Win XP Pro, Mobo ASUS P5Q Pro, CASE ANTEC P160. How can I set the temprature readout to Celsius? Is there a switch or is it a software set up?
We us the metric system here "Down Under".

Thanks

Default ANTEC case P160 Temp readout

Thanks to all replying. Got the answer by using the old maxim "When all else fails, read the instruction manual".
There are 2 x 66cm leads that go to the mobo and HD from the top front of the case . On one there is a small switch with push for F and leave open for C. It is just above the bottom of the case.

As in life generally, it's easy when you know how!!
