For people with external (basement or ground cooling)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
How do you have your setup to be redundant in the event your main pump kicks off and starves your system pump (in a two pump system where one pumps water through your chiller, other pumps through your loop)?

One guy i saw used heat exchangers so the system pump was completely isolated. Its a good idea, and would be the safest, but still want some piece of mind since i leave my pc on 24/7, and im not sure how to go about forcing the pc to shut down should the bigger pump fail and im left with just the water in my loop and no cooling.

I have two of these http://www.koolance.com/water-coolin...roduct_id=1207 in my system with 6 temperature sensors (CPU, GPUs, coolant) to shut PC down if any one of the sensors reach 45°C threshold. It is just too much toubles with redundancy setup, I'd like ko keep it simple and having a peace of mind

Well those arent an option, for price and space as i only have one 5.25 space to use total. I do have an Aerocool Gatewatch 2 that ive ripped apart to embed, and it has an alarm, that doesnt help me if im not home, or im asleep lol.

You can use RealTemp to set a shutdown threshold for CPU or GPU temps. It's a nice fail safe to have, I have mine set to shut down at 80c. If your pump ever dies or even just gets disconnected you'll be covered.
