    Place it wherever you want to measure the temperature.

    If you want the case temp, place it towards the upper case area.
    If you want to measure video card temperature, place it on the video card heatsink
    If you want to measure CPU temp. place it on the CPU heatsink.

    Etc.

    OK, thanks! I want to measure CPU temp. I assume between the heat sink and the CPU is the best spot.

    Whoa Nellie!!!!

    Nothing goes BETWEEN the heat sink and cpu other than thermal grease or a thermal pad! If you don't have a near perfect mating of the sink to the chip you may fry your CPU.

    Unless you can slip the wire in place AFTER the sink is correctly mounted, "fahgettaboutit".
