In line water temp?

post #1 of 36

hey i dont really know a whole lot about water cooling but i was just wondering if an inline water temp probe would be worth the money and what would be a good one to install?

Well, considering the only in line probes I have seen are for like 1/4" or maybe 3/8" tubing, there are no good production ones. Really it is a waste.

:/ well then i guess the only thing is go by hopes with a big resivoir and not have to worry about water temps?

The temp sensor will restrict flow in your loop not to mention that the sensors they use in most of them cannot be verified to be accurate. I as a hvac tech see no reason you need a temp sensor as the temps you can monitor from your cpu and whatever other sensors you have will tell you well enough if there is a problem with your cooling just as easily as an inline temp probe. I see it as a waste of resources and money personally as it just puts one more set of barbed fittings in your rig to come loose possibly causing the factory smoke to be released and we all know how bad that is lol. From a professional view there is really no need for one.

You can get temp probes at Radio Shack for a few dolars.

ok so i guess while i got you guys going i want to kinda change the subject up a bit i was wondering if one if these inline water coolers would be an alright idea i mean it doesnt seem like it would restrict flow really unless your coming from a bigger hose than the size of one of these things

You would have to string like 20 of those together to get the cooling power of a dual heatercore... Not to mention the massive pump you would need to get them through that.

Car heatercores are the most effective in the world. Why? Because cars are used everyday, so more time and energy goes into car tech then computer cooling tech... I suppose if you are trying to build a miny system those would work, but you will not have a optimal watercooling system.

no no no i think you might have gotten me wrong man these things arent used to replace normal water cooling equipment just to aid in the cooling processing and yes are very effective in a string and most effecting if strung in front of a fan

Hmmm, I think that they would restrict the flow at most. In my opinion there are three key things to a good watercooling setup.
1. High GPH
2. High processor to water block heat transfer
3. Low water temps

Number 2 is attained by buying a good watercooling block and mounting properly.

Number 1 and 3 have a little more thinking though. You might think hey! They inline thingies will help with the temp... But, no they may accually decrease it.
Those little inline heat transfer dingies lower your GPH, and that means that any given water is sitting above the processor longer, and heating up more. Therefore you have hotter water to cool. The amount you are going to cool the processor is directly related to the potential difference between the water and the processor. If your water is 22C and your processor is 50C you are going to have more heat transfer than, 25C to 50C.

Therefore, it is in MY opinion that high GPH can acually achieve lower water temperatures, even better then having a fancier radiator. Because the faster you move the water through the system, the less the water heats up, keeping a high potential difference. Therefore, a larger resivoir may play a larger role in your WCing system than most think...
