    Adding a CPU thermometer.

    I have a AMDK7-500 and a MSI6167 mobo, the motherboard doesn't support CPU heat detection. I bought a LCD thermometer from radio shack and was wondering what the best placement for the read head would be.

    As close to the CPU as possible.

    If you have a indoor/outdoor one then take the plastic encased thermister and swap it out with the one inside the case. Its very easy to do you just have to cut two wires on each one. Then take the "indoor" thermistor and put it in between the cpu and heatsink.
    If it ain't broke, tweak it!!

    I am considering soldering two wires to the socket unto which the pins for the the internal cpu diode connect and connecting to a radio shack thermometer. I just need to take a voltage reading off the leads of the thermometer to make sure there is not excessive current.
