I put my Scythe Kaze Master's sensor on the bottom fin of my heatsink. It doesn't give me anywhere near the actual CPU temp, but it still gives me a reference point to tell if my chip is under load or not without actually looking at my computer screen.

yes you go google "realtemp" and bingo

It isn't a good idea to tape anything to your CPU, and it will also not give an accurate reading anyways.

But if you really want to do it do not place the sensor in the middle, that is where the cores are and that is where the heat is and you don't want to stop the heat transfer to the heatsink from the cores. so you could place it anywhere along the sides and again don't use tape just use thermal paste as glue and attach it and quickly place the heatsink on it to hold it in place.

Good luck hope you have good sensors that will not melt to the cpu or heatsink

temp gauge came with my fan controller i want to use it but dont wanna ruin the cpu in the process i was thinking about taping it to the side with a thin strip of the thermal tape not sure thermal paste would hold it to the side cant put it on the top my silver arrow would crush the diode

no the only reason I said to use thermal paste was to make sure it doesn't melt to the heatsink, and only use it if you are putting the sensor directly to the CPU. (aKa between CPU and heatsink sensor sandwich)

Just because it came with it doesn't mean you have to use it wink.gif

I just placed mine all over the case to show me ambient temps. Because again putting it on any part of your computer components is pointless because it will never display a remotely accurate reading.

I vote use it for ambient temps to help you improve case airflow.

I think if you were to try and put it on the cpu to read temps I would try lifting the heatsink up slightyl and put it under the slight edge but doing this will most likely crush the small resistor inside the flat film that gives you the readings.

Hardcore DICE/LN2 guys Dremel out a little channel in the IHS and put the thermal sensor in the channel.
At long last...

would putting it between the heatsink and cpu interfere with my cpu temps due to the sensor in between the heatsink and cpu if it didnt break the sensor?

Agreed,

2nd part though
no
Many people do it, but again I don't understand why because it will not give close to accurate readings.

You don't read my posts do you?

if you put the sensor over the cores you will not get proper heat transfer and most likely melt the sensor to the heatsink or the CPU

You will not break the sensor either, made if you put it on a plate of steel and hit it over and over with a hammer. sandwiching it between the cpu and heatsink though will NOT break it
