Sensors

I was wondering if there are any type of Sensors that I can install inside of my pc case to give me a better idea of how hot everything is in there ? I have core temp installed and also Everest Ultimate but these are just software and I was looking for Hardware to give me a more accurate reading. I also have a Thermal temp gun that I can use but is labor intensive and would rather just have something I could glance at to tell me what the temps are. I am looking for a temp on the memory sticks,hard drives and the cpu heat sink.

    I don't know of any off-hand. Your hardware though has built in "sensors" that the software uses to provide you the reading. You probably can't get a better sensor than one that's "built in". I imagine some software is better than others and everyone will have their own favorite - stick to the tried and tested ones. You could use multiple programs and see if the readings vary much. Keep in mind that the purpose is really "early warning" of a possible issue. They're not for baking. :) Good luck.
