Thermal Probe Placement

522 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  XinjaX

I am planning to put together a new computer with an i7 920. The heatsink I plan to use is a Zalman CNPS9700 NT with the 1366 clip for it. Im also planning to have a fan controller with tempurature probes. My first question is what is the best place to put the probe to get a fairly acurate tempurature reading?

The second question is could the probe be attached to the heatsink with solder or thermal compound without destroying the heatsink or the probe or both?

i think you should put on top of your 920 in the middle then put the heatsink on it

but useing programs to tell temp is still a better choice imo
