Temperature probe M5A99X EVO R2.0

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey I figured I'd try posting this here, are there any temp probes that will work with an M5A99X EVO R2.0 mobo? I found this one on FrozenCPU but I don't see any 2-pin headers on the motherboard that would work. I'm not too familiar with temperature probes, just want to get one to monitor VRM temps, and would rather not have to buy something like a 5 1/4" bay controller just for that.

You need the display that FrozenCPU also carries. Such as Phobya Illuminated Thermometer with Digital Display - Blue Blacklight (71013). The flat portion, the actual sensor, can be mounted as close to the cpu socket as you can get it without pinching it between the cpu and the cpu cooler heatsink. I have the same mobo and cpu as you.....I mounted this sensor on the backside of the cpu socket. The temperature is off by maybe 4c.
The actual display I mounted in an extra bay cover. I don't think there is anyway to use it without a display.
