    Who needs that thing, All you need to do is run your Tbird with a 150w PS and it will reboot for ya.. lol It does look cool, and looks like a nice design.. Hopfully we'll never realy need it #Rotor..

    Rotor, just curious, where did you learn to make a device like that. Are you self-taught or do you have some form of education on the subject and if so, what?

    Yeah... bout' the only thing you wouldn't want to overclock, would be your clock...
    Unless you just want to be early all the time..

    I would have liked to say it's all self taught, but unfortunately no, I had some official tutoring (T1 Electronic Engineering) when I was still young and stupid, never did understand why they gave us all this crap to learn.... now I wish I paid more attention... can barely remember any of it...

    Yep, nice start that is.
    I'll be making sumthin like that one day.
    It will be based on a 16f84 will monitor water temp/flow and cpu temp. Control the water cooling in 3 modes: sleep/intensive/constant cpu temp. (Having control on pump supply and fan speed for optimal noise.)
    It will beep a bit before shutting system down and may have serial port interface for software shutdown.)
    Of course all measured info will be accessible on a big backlit LCD
    If only i could get down to it....

    in short, a temperature activated on\off switch for your pc, protects from overheating and burning peltiers, by hard switching your pc when a pre set temperature I reached

    Not wishing to take anything away from Rotor's expertise, but for the less electronically minded of us, but that can still use a soldiering Iron the correct way round Maplin in the UK do many Velleman kits for various projects. These are not necessarily PC based but can be used as such. I recently put together a 12v powered 240v supply delay switch that is adjustable from 0sec to 60sec for pump run on after shutdown.

    Hmmmmm If I interpret this right, this is so the water flows for a Predetermined time after shutdown, or in case of a power outage? I have my Water Pump and 110v fans on a UPS Backup..... safer as far as I'm concerned,,,

    nope, all it does is compare a measured temp with a pre-set temp, and if they equal each other or the pre-set temp is smaller than the measured one, it shuts the PC down...
