T-line temp sensor.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if anybody had experience with one of these: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...oducts_id=2449
and knew if the sensor would be suitable to put in the T-line of a WC loop to monitor the water temperature going into the CPU block. I would cut a small hole in the side of the T-line to insert the sensor probe and then seal up the hole with some silicone sealant. I am wondering what your thoughts are on this experiment and whether the sensor would hold up in water, etc.

I have one of those that I coated with a little bit of shoe goo and stuck in a tline

it might already keep out water but I just wanted to be sure

How did you put it in? Just slip it in over the barb and clamp on it?

I used one of those for a read-out for this temp sensor...I put the sensor in a T siliconed it in good and put heat-shrink around it...Get the tip right in the flow a little bit...I have one right before the rad and one right after...Those sensors come with a 2-pin tail so I just used a 3-pin male tail on the read-out...It works pretty good...I'll leave you a couple of pic's..One of the sensors is to the left of my pressure gauge....

I was talking about inserting one into a plastic T that has my fillport at the top. I don't want to add another fixture into the loop if I don't have to.

I tried coating one of those flat tape sensors with clear silicone and put it in my res and it fell apart on me...Maybe what Born said would work....

Yeah, I was planning on using one of the flat ones like this:
And just having it sort of poking into the flow through the T.

Yeah coat it with something and it might work...I put clear silicone on the one I tried and I think that might be what made it fall apart...The tape was kind of pulling away from the metal part of the probe when I put it in...I thought the silicone would keep it all together but it didn't...Thats when I changed over to the all metal probes......

Hey let me know what you put on it and if it works out for you...I still need one in my res and it would be a lot easier to use one of those then putting one of the metal ones in the bottom of my res....I could just snake one of those in from the top.....
