Brains for WC loop - Page 2

I'm going to be using this to monitor temps and control fan speeds: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...59edc76e5096ab

and these are what I'm using to get the temps: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...59edc76e5096ab

I already tested everything artificially using a heatgun on the radiator and the fan controller picks up the correct temperature from the probes and adjusts the fans accordingly.

I also agree that it doesn't need a "Brain" (except for the person using it of course ) but seriously, I have a in-line temp probe that tells me the temp of the coolant as it returns to the res, that lets me know if things are starting to get warm. I normally have a 10c variance in coolant temps vs CPU temps but it can vary more once I'm pushing the system hard.
This will show up as a rise in coolant temps as I go higher with the voltage and I do monitor chip temps too for seeing if I'm going to run into a thermal spiking problem, that normally doesn't happen until I hit at least 1.500v's with my 1100T chip. With others such as my 555 BE, I can go higher with the voltage before that starts happening.

Yes a vario pump will allow you to vary or tune the system as needed but that can also be done with a simple in-line watervalve/gatevalve to restrict flow. I have both ways of controlling the flow setup in my system, complete with a drainvalve for EZ maintenance if I have to change the coolant or work on it for some reason.
The res also has it's own shutoff valve so I can isolate it too without losing much of my coolant except for what's in the lines - Comes in handy if you have a leak and need the coolant supply cut off before the system gets soaked.

I use this to monitor my water temperatures. It works great, and no need to have a fan controller to display the temperature. I have mine on the outlet of my Heatkiller 3.0 CU. Which is the hottest spot, I would like to get another to put on the inlet so I can tell how much difference there is.

Nice that you can switch it from C/F with a push of a button. And its blue to match my system.

Here is a picture of my loop with the mentioned temperature monitor(sitting on PSU), custom made plenum for a 200mm radiator to use 2x120mm fans, Liquid Fusion reservoir, and all the rest of it as well.
