Default Where to Place Temperature Sensors

I have two temperature sensors to put inside my pc but I'm not sure where to put them! Do i put them directly on the heatsink or can they be taped over the vent things where the fan sits on?

Are there any specific places there they should go?

Default Re: Where to Place Temperature Sensors

I put them as close as possible to your heat sources. When I had heat sensors on my computer, I try getting a close as possible to the CPU or GPU core. Some times might mean i need to take part a heat sink so i can put the sensor in there.

Just remember to remove the sensors before you take apart your PC.
