    I purchased a card reader which fits in one 5" bay and it came with a dinky little temperature read display complete with sensors.
    Where exactly would one place the sensors to feed back something really important?
    How would you fix them?
    What bits should not exceed what temperatures?
    I presume that one has three bits of kit which could expeience performance drop off with temperature rise, the CPU, the RAM and the VGA. The CPU and the VGA already have coolers fitted, so what exactly am I going to measure? The outside skin of the cooler or a more general space temperature in the case, or perhapse an inlet and an exhaust from the case.
    I haven't set up the m/b yet, but, if it is anything like the previous P5B board, then ASUS will have built in a sensor system which actually would measure the heart of the CPU. rendering my little sensors so much powder fluff!!!
    Still, its fun to fiddle, as Michael J**ckson would say
