XSPC Tempature Sensor + Water

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Is it okay to fully submerse the sensor diode into the water? I'm planning on feeding it through the filling port.

Where that yellow strip is, there was some soldering which is naked, between the wire and the yellow strip. Is it still okay?

I wouldn't ... Unless you're running non conductive fluid. Those temperature probes are generally hooked up to the cheapest of fan controllers. Even the expensive ones I've bought come looking CHEAP!

I'm kinda stuck here, I can't imagine there is much voltage going through that I doubt anything would happen.. but I don't want to say do it and then pop!! lol

I would maybe try to seal the probe better before submerging.

Dip it in clear finger nail polish to waterproof it.

Will it eventually wear off the nail polish being in the water?

I've had one in water for a couple weeks with no trouble.

Then I bought the correct water sensor.

No. It really shouldn't. If it did it would take a very long time.
