Installing and applying temp sensor ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am in the final build stage of my new system. I have installed a Thermaltake Hardcano 13 Controller with temp sensors. My question is do you let the sensor just hang near the componant you want to monitor or is there something you apply to the sensor end to keep in in place on said componant?

My case came with some temp sensor and a display on the door, They came with no instructions. My guess is that they go directly on the application, but I'm not about to put something between my heatsink/cpu unless its some arctic silver.

For round blue sensors: use thermal epoxy, like Arctic Silver Adhesive, glue it to the base of your heatsink (not accurate though). I'd use them for harddrive monitor since CPUs have built-in temp sensor.

For flat amber snsors: use thermal paste, samething, but they fit into more narrower places.
