Thermal monitoring hardware

I am looking for HARDWARE that I can put in a server, to monitor temperatures. The server is a Dell Poweredge 1900, and from what I can find, there are no built in sensors.

  1. if your just wanting to monitor temps you can install core temp. I have it installed on both my servers at work, HP ProLiant DL360 G7. Both are 1U servers that stand on their side with 1U space between them. Wasnt sure how this would workout at first so I installed core temp to make sure i wasnt getting a hotspot in the server somewhere.

    I am looking for hardware, not software.
  3. So really what your wanting to do is install thermal probs in key spots to monitor temps that report bback to a LCD screen? If that's what your looking for then this is about all I could find. http://www.frozencpu.com/products/5401/tmp-38/Thermal-Star_7-Backlight_Illuminated_Thermometer_Fan_Bus_TM07.html?tl=g4c133s492

    Nobody really makes anything like that because all the sensors are already built into the MB, CPU, VC, and everything else. It's easier to use those and just download freeware to monitor them. I see it more of a business thing, why would a company spend r&d time to make something that only a few people will buy. Supply and demand.

    Thinking about it I'm guessing the server is tucked away in a small closet with no monitor attached to it. Could always use software to monitor temps and use Remote Desktop to another computer to watch the software.
