Another day, another mod hehe
Bought a couple of usb temp sensors
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PC-Laptop-USB-Thermometer-Tem...
to check out my loops performance, one is ambient measure, and I've been waiting for a couple of G1/4 caps to arrive,
you could also do this with Led's if you sealed the prongs correctly, no responsibility accepted for boo-boo's, you mess at your own risk, same as always

Shiny G1/4 caps, Hex-head fastening, they don't even know whats coming....


Omg dude? some dude just totally like, drilled you lol


Sensor fed through and ready to seal


Glued/sealed both sides and left to set,


took the opportunity to top up whilst open and fitted the sensor cap




Sensor is 4.5mm so I used a 4.5mm bit, nice tight fit, I filled the gap I had drilled with glue then fed the sensor through to ensure a good seal before adding a good blob each side of the seal, allowing it to set slightly and forcing it into the gap, then adding more glue to form

temps looking good although I wonder why my ambient is higher than the water :p  **Edit, seems to have resolved itself now
I think its just heat rising in the room, cores are good, water temps good

Pretty slick DIY sensor mod you got there. I like it- in fact, thinking about adding one to the last port on my mini-res.

Sounds good- I might also look for a 2-pin sensor as I have 3 additional spots on for thermal probes on my fan controller.
