You need to have temp sensors on the rad for coolant IN and coolant OUT, plus ambient air temp. I use the rad fan IN temp. This gives you a approximate wattage of heat energy removed.
Use the temp sensor offsets to get all the sensors reading the same temp. I'll leave the case open overnight with a small fan circulating air in the case. Before you power up use the AQ6 panel to look at all the temp sensor reading (AQ6 is always on from the usb power feed), record the differences and then adjust in the offset column. Of 6 sensors, 5 had a +/- of .5C or less, 1 was 1.2C off. You can also use a DVM to measure the Ohm resistance of each sensor, the target is 10k ohm.
