Where to put the temp sensors ?!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I got the Scythe KamaMeter (fancontroller) and it came with 4 temp sensors. Now i already decided that 1 sensor is for the CPU, and 1 for the ambient temp. But where to put the other 2 ???

Channel 1 - CPU
Channel 2 - ?
Channel 3 - ?
Channel 4 - Ambient

the wiring the of the sensor is only 50 cm long and i do intend to hide as much as possible, so any videocard temp reading won't without solder the wires. and my mobo has heatsink from top to bottom... so don't know if i can get a good temp reading.

so come up with ideas any comment is welcome !

thanks

Like...have one checking what temperature it is normaly outside your case and then inside your case...if thats possible. To see how much hotter it is inside than outside

Channel 2 on your RAM. Channel 3 on your GPU. Sound any good?

You could put them on one of the following:

RAM
GPU
Other part of case
Upper part of heatsink
HDD
NB/SB

Personally, I have three temp sensors and they are going on the CPU, the GPU, and the HDD. If I had a fourth one it would go on the RAM.
