How much will this obstruct the flow? (now with pics)

How much will this obstruct the flow?



This is the temp sensor from bitspower inside the koolance brass body.

Will it obstruct too much?

I can also add a spacer which I have, but its a bit long



This means that it will be like a T-line. Will it be better? worse? both options bad?

I just want to check the water temp after the GPUs and before the radiators, instead of sticking the sensor at the reservoir, which I'm not sure gives a good temp estimate over the loop's heat.

could you post some pictures of what you have in pieces? so we can get an idea of your options?

the best place to put the temp sensor depends on what you want to measure. if you want to know what temp the water is getting to your processor (so you can see what effect water temps have prior to hitting the water blocks), or after your last gpu to see what temp the water is getting too after it passes all heat sources.

Personally i would not risk using it like in picture one of yours.

I would have rather used the spacer.

Jeebus, that first picture would really kill your flow rate. Definitely use the spacer, even with a strong pump that would probably hurt it in the long run.

Even without the spacer you aren't going to be adding any measurable amount of restriction. Compare that fitting to a CPU block and'll you'll see it's not going to be a problem at all.

hmm.. ? are you kidding?

@OP the only place for this type of temp sensors is bay RES, go with the spacer or something like this;

Oh this is nice find. Thanks.

I also found that koolance have a similar sensor like I have, just much slimer for the same brass body.

So I will do what suggested, and put the one I have now in the resevior, and at some point I will get either the koolance or the aqua ones and place it where I wanted.

Cheers.

It won't make any difference at all. Have you ever taken the top of a CPU water block off and looked at the jet plate? I suggest you do this, you'll then see that your temperature sensor is nothing compared to the restriction placed by the water block.

Ever wondered why the majority of bubbles form in the CPU block? Well, it's not because the CPU block passes water through easily, that's for sure.

Just out of curiosity, how do you intend to get it inside the reservoir? I was thinking of doing something similar myself. It'd be nice if you could keep us up-to-date on how you go about doing it.

I'm using an EK double bay reservior, which has 4 holes for fittings (1 in, 3 out).
So I just connect the bitspower sensor into one of the holes, and I know the temp of the water after it leaves the radiators and before the pump.
I did the same with my swiftech reservoir. I put the bitspower sensor plug right next to the input.

When I get home I can get a picture of the reservoir with the plug.
