For my water cooling setup which uses 1/2" ID Tygon and an eheim 1260. I would like something that tells me the actual water flow if possible. I am also looking for a temp probe, but that could be something seperate I suppose.

^^^ Found that... I just dont care for the 'paddle wheel'... dont think it provides any real flow data, and it most likely restricts the flow a bit.

I have the same concerns with this one...

IMHO, I would think they would be negligable on the flow restrictions. The only force your applying to the paddle wheel is going to be enough to overcome the friction in the bearing and the inductance to the sensor.

Koolance has a great new flow meter, it's doing a fantastic job in my loop.

But, that probe RR linked is what I'd pick for the temp sensor as well.
