Where can I stick this probe?

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?

More about where stick probe
  1. 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?
  2. 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.

  3. 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.
  4. Ill tell u where u should stick it! :D
  5. 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.
  6. The 8800 has an internal temp sensor. No need for probes.
  7. Step one bend over ahahahahahaaha

    dude you are asking for it big time :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Use NVIDIA ntune MONITOR . it will tell you the temp .

    But just to carry on with the orginal problem stick it where the sun dont shine ahahahahahahahahahaha
  8. NVIDIA ntune MONITOR. Gotcha. And yes, I have to rethink my headlines :cry:
