    Koolance has couple liquid sensor probes, you can use one of these;
    1) http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=239&product s_id=23997 $10 each

    2) http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=239&product s_id=20420 $17 each, adapter included

    3) http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=239&product s_id=24530 $17 each inline

    4) http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=239&product s_id=23703 $30/pair water proof

    5) http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=20836 $ 4 per sensor

    6) http://www.frozencpu.com/products/5726/tmp-47/MicroTemp_MT-PRO_Pistol-Grip_Digital_Infrared_Non-Contact_Thermometer_w_Laser_Sight.html?tl=g44c133s 456 $60 infared thermometer

    7) http://digitalthermometers.net/roastalertovenroastingthermometeret-8.aspx $25 digital cooking thermometer for oven.

    I have #1 probe but I don't think it works properly, it shows very low temps in Everest. I guess because the coolant moving so fast in the loop or faulty sensor:confused:. I haven't use it or retest it again yet.

    You can use #4 but too expensive or you can use #4 and waterproof it yourself, use a dap (thin coat) clear silicon to cover up the sensor and you can dip it into the res or you can use it without water proof by tape it outside the res body. This might not 100% accurate but it does the job through.

    To messure cooled collant you do need the res right after the rad through, this way you will know if your rad working properly or not. Because cooled coolant temps always hoovering from 5-7c at load, idle temps should be the same as ambient temps.

    Or you can get #6; this gadget is very handy, you can measure any components you like but it's the most expensive one. I picked one up on sales (60% off) at my local electronic or tools stores, so look around you may find a good deal.

    The last resource if you can find any probes at specialty store then you can get #7 (done it and been there). My wife just want to kill me every time she found out I was using her toy. She told me to get my own so I got the infared thermometer.

    thanks for the info Deton. I may get one of those.

    Just found something interesting, when running super PI at 3.84 it gives me result of 12.512

    but when i'm running it on 4ghz it gives me 12.330.... not much of a difference then :rolleyes:

    No, not much of the performace gain with 200Mhz more but definitely a lot of heat from 3.8 vs 4Ghz through. So find a sweet spot and stay there

    i.e: I can get q6600 @ 3.8Ghz for 24/7 but its darn hot instead of 3.6Ghz.
