Need a flow meter than also reports water temperatures

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have a recommendation of a flow meter/water temp sensor and like a display that shows them both in a 5.25 bay slot? I am looked to spend up to 75$ on them.

The only thing you'll find that does both in a single drive bay is the AquaComputer Aquaero controllers, and those are going to be upwards of $150 for a controller and a flowmeter/temp probe. Koolance makes an inline flow meter, which you can get get in a drive bay for around $70. Then you could just get a temp probe and hook it up to the thermal probe spots on your motherboard, and monitor coolant temp via your computer.

How would I go about hooking that up to a Thermal probe?

Hooking what up to the thermal probe? Your mother board or the Aquaero?

To my motherboard as you stated

I don't know why you need both a temp probe and flow meter in the same unit.
But I beleive the Aquaero MPS can do that.
Tho it will not report to your mobo as RPM signal. It will report via USB and the Aquasuite software will display it in windoze or Linux..
And I beleive you can hook up a temp sensor to the MPS flow meter too.

You don't need to get any other Aquaero hardware. The MPS sensor will report to the Aquasuite free open source software.

I have both the Koolance flow meter and the MPS.
The Koolance can plug directly to your mobo rpm signal without the Koolance controller if you get the 25$ adapter here:
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11672/koo-261/Koolance_ADT-FM03_Flow_Meter_Frequency_Adapter_for_INS-FM17N.html

I have the Koolance plugged into my Lamptron CW611 and it displays either liter/hour or gal/min.
It's fairly accurate to less than 0.06 gal/min too.
Or you could plug it into your mobo fan header and each rpm translates to ml/min.

Can you tell me what motherboard your using? Many high end mobos have 2 pin headers for thermal probes, many more don't.

The Lamptron CW611 can display flow, temps, and fan/pump rpm.
But the CW611 is 100$, and a Koolance flow meter with adapter will be an other 40$.
You can also buy an inline water temp sensor, or just tape one of your Lamptron included sensors to one of your rads.

The CW611 can also control all your pump(s), fans, and LEDs.

Darn, doesn't look like yours has one.

You might consider investing in an Aquaero controller. Lets you monitor flow rates, liquid temps, lets you control pump speed, fan speed, etc.

Someone else might be along with a better recommendation, I can't think of any off the top of my head other than an aquaero
