[quotemsg=20123007,0,5190][quotemsg=20122914,0,1831386]... which is why I use water temperature probes to control the fan speed on the radiators, CPU temp doesn't get used for anything except monitoring.[/quotemsg]What happens if your temp probe fails or otherwise malfunctions and relays incorrect values? Not entirely different from a coolant temp sensor failing in a vehicle. I think you should run a redundant sensor or a single "sensor unit" with two independent sensors, and have the system max out the fans if the delta between the two sensors is greater than a few degrees. For safety.
On a related note, most users running LC are using a prebuilt closed loop.[/quotemsg]
I have two sensors and a warning if either of them surpass 55C, and it's more likely of the fan headers or fans themselves to fail than the actual probes. Unless you were to make a super redundant water loop you basically should avoid letting the system run intensive stuff (such as F@H) while you're not nearby to notice alarms etc, though its entirely possible to set up a service to shut down or sleep the system in the case of bad cooling.
