Re: Arduino Controlled PC Water Cooling System info center.

The water pump I have selected outputs RPM signals similar to a standard three wire PC fan. In fact you can plug the signal wire to the CPU fan header on a motherboard and if your pump dies or stops sending a signal it will shut your PC down to prevent a CPU failure due to heat. While a nice feature...

This is actually a side project for my COD MW2 case mod found here . I plan on building a water pump cover that has a 16x2 or 20x4 LCD that will display several parameters about the water cooling system including: 2 temperature locations, 2 Fan RPM readings, Pump RPM, liquid flow rate and possibly e...

If you go with an RGB back light it could be controlled with an Atmel ATtiny45, a trimpot and some simple code like Paul Boardman uses here It would not be that hard to write the code so that the ATtiny45 changed the backlight color via PWM input from an Arduino either. As for LCD form factors I wou...
