I've got three temperature cable sensors off of my mobo and I would like to measure the temp of my video card. Where should one place the temperature sensor on a BFG GeForce 8800 GTX OC?

BFG GeForce 8800 GTX OC
Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048-6400 2X1GB DDR2-800

LOL That is one hell of a loaded subject title. I'm sure there's lot's of people here that can tell you where to "stick it". But seriously, doesn't that card already have a built in temperature sensor?

There seems to be no internal temperature sensor in my video card, but I stand to be corrected. I need a safe place to insert the probe without shorting any circuitry out but still getting a reasonably accurate temperature reading.

You will not get an acurate GPU temp. Those probes are meant to measure your case's ambient air, or if you wish the fan exhaust air.

Where have you checked for temps that you say it doesn't have a thermal sensor? The nvidia control panel should have one. Rivatuner could tell you the temps. Even ATItool, even though you don't have an ATI card.

The 8800 has an internal temp sensor. No need for probes.
