Are there any drive-bay water temperature monitors? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Ever seen those aquarium thermometer stickers? I know it's not the best looking, but should get the job done.

I'm thinking that I should buy a 7/16" T-fitting so I don't have any more problems. However, I don't know if that 1/4" temp sensor would fit inside of one? (if you have any links to your T-fitting please let me know)

Also, do I understand correct in that you are saying you bought two of the temp sensors and somehow attached them to that digital thermometer LED? Did you need to buy any drive-bay mounting plates to attach the thermometer to?

Thanks again for the help!
I used some 1/2x1/2"x 1/4" pipe fitting on the top and just cut the threaded part off and reamed it out a little with a drill and kind of self-threaded the sensor down into it...I had some of those on hand like I used for my pressure gauge...A regular 1/2" T should work fine to seal it in good with silicone and let it cure out for several days before you use it......Yeah the comu-nurse read out come with a little flat tape sensor I cut those off and attached a male 3-pin connector to the end of it you only need to attach it to two of the pins...Then the temp probes have a 2 pin connector you just attach it to the read out...The compu nurses are powered with a 4 pin molex...Just use a little glycerin and water on the plastic fittings and you tube will slide on the plastic barbs a lot easier...

You can get these 51/4" bay covers that fit a compu nurse if you want to...A funky color but you can always paint it...
