Temperature sensor on my 144

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am installing a new Opteron 144 into my case which has a simple temperature sensor (X-Qpack). Before I assemble weveything, I am curious as where woul dbe the best place to put the cpu temp probe? I am mounting a Zalman 7000 on the processor. Thank you.

It's always best to use the temperature from your motherboard. Most motherboards, will get temperature from a thermal diode that measure the temperature of the actual die. You could put the thermal diode from the case in between the heatsink and the ihs but i woulnd't recommend it, as it will greatly disrupt the the heat dissapation from your heatsink and fan, plus, it will read the temp of your ihs which will be a few degrees lower than your actual die temperature.
