CHECK THIS OUT.......looks good


Placing a sensor near your CPU is tricky. You can't put the sensor directly on the core because it will block the heatsink from contacting the entire core surface. As a result, processors generally don't make great candidates for external sensors. However, AMD Athlon XP processors have a raised core and four small pads that create a gap between the heatsink and the body of the processor. The AMD representative told us that a user should be able to slide a flat sensor into the gap without trouble. If you place a sensor in this gap, keep in mind that although the sensor itself is flat, its cable is not. If you wedge the cable under the heatsink, you may break the heatsink's contact with the processor's core.
