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...
Blue 5.25" Chenming Face Plate With Dual CompuNurse Bay
I just made some little face plates for mine and cut them into the front of my case.
This is one of the temp sensors its to the left of the pressure gauge...
