How to monitor air temperature different places inside of case:
  • A cheap indoor/outdoor thermometer with a piece of insulated wire and a plastic clothspin works great.
  • Made up with floral wire and tape. We don't want anything to short out with metal. wink.gif

  • Clip and position sensor where I want to check the temp. Make it easy to see what the air temp going into components actually is relative to room temp. wink.gif
  • Optimum cooling is when air temps going into coolers only being 2-3c warmer than room.. 5c or less is good.
