Now onto the Pulse Gen. This is just a name I made up because it is basically what it does. It isn't a part of the watercooling as such, but required so that I can use the Asus Smart Doctor hardware monitoring that comes with the Asus GF3 card. It monitors fan rotation, temps, voltages and has GPU software cooling. Because I'm after a zero fan PC the card fan had to go which makes the Smart Doctor unusable due to it popping up continuously saying the fan is dead. I made this simple circuit, (with much help from others in this forum), that gives the card the same information via an artificially generated "pulse" as a fan does running at about 4500RPM.

The plan is to later run the signal or power for the pulse gen through a flow switch so it will pop up on pump death. (Thanks go to the members @ Hardware Central forums that helped me with building the pulse gen circuit).
