probe placement recomendations ( And up my **** is not an option :)
I went to Radioshack and purchased a thermometer with a probe. I have 333mhz P2 processer and am not sure where the best place is to put the probe for the most accurate reading. Should I place it towards the top of the processor, or the side opposite the cpu fan or as close to the bottom of the processor as I can?
The ideal place would be embeded in the heat sink dead center, in contact with the CPU. Once you find a place, do some comparisons between the probe and the bios temp report. Then use the difference as the offset to add to its readings.
Thanks for the tip Roy
Nothing constructive to say. I just had to say that the title made me laugh. That was good.
If you drilled a hole in your heatsink, wouldn't that give you a hotspot in the middle of your cpu? And those radio shack temp guages have huge (at least when trying to use with alpha cooler) sensor on the end. I spent all morning today trying to get the thermistor out of the case. Nearly killed it except for good soldering skills.
Anyone know of a place to buy thermistors?
put mine center on the bottom of the cpu
it was that or drill the center of my alpha
not 100% accuate but gives you a good gauge
if your trying cpu or case modds
