Default Thermal probes

Im going to put a thermal probe in my power supply, I'm just not sure how to attach it. Its going on one of the heatsinks inside. So I figured superglue would be perfect. How hot do you think superglue can get before it melts? I figure temps should be between 70 and 100F. Thanks.

Seems kind of pointless to do to me

Don't know how much heat superglue can take, but I can say with probably 90% confidence that the heatsinks in the PSU probably get hotter than 100F

Its not pointless, you'll know if your PSU fan dies.

Superglue can hold up to 150F i think... shesh if it didnt hold at 100F and below i would have stuff falling down on me.....

Depending on the PSU, some have fan sensors. Besides that I don't think I've ever known of a case where a PSU fan failed before the PSU did
