SHP_HAWK: It is possible to monitor the the temperature of your case and I have a very nice solution for you, but probably out of your price range.
AquaComputer is a German manufacturer that offers specialty water cooling products. So far there is only one US distributor that offers these imported products, tending to raise the price of what is offered.
AquaComputer manufactures an item called the Aquaero:
This little puppy handles up to 6 different temperature probes and can monitor and control 4 fans with up to 10A on each line.
Not only this, but it has a TON of more features.
Using the software, you could make fans automatically increase their speed when the temperature of a location rises above a certain set point.
My plan is to have the loud Delta fans on my heatercore run at a low speed to stay quiet when I am not gaming. When I game or stress test, the temperature of my water will increase, this
thermal sensor will detect the temperature of my water in my reservoir, and the aquaero will automatically raise the speed of my fans to counteract teh temperature.
If you really wanted to make the best use of it, you could really spend a lot of money and get a whole AquaComputer loop setup, it'd be very nice.
I've got this Aquaero:
with the black face plate, and I am overly joyed with it.
If you need any more help, I am subscribed.
