    I was looking into some temp moniters (like LCD i guess that fit into the 5.25 bay) but how do some people get the temperature of their hd and does the mobo have something to do with it?

    Yeah i have one of those, its really useful :D . I think most people who post hdd temps use a similar device and just put the thermal probe somewhere on the hdd, personally i have one on my cpu, and the other measuring my gfx card temps :thumb:

    toolbox, I have a ThermalTake Hardcano II. Here is the manufacturer's site: http://www.thermaltake.com/products/...r/hdcooler.htm .

    It comes with two temp sensors that you can place on your HDD, video card, CPU, ... It doesn't get anything from the mobo (I have a ****ty intel board, and I can't even get the sensors to work) I paid $25 w/shipping at newegg.com: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...cription=a1278 . My case is packed (I have a DVD, CDRW, NewQ, and the temp monitor)! Another nice feature about this one is that you mount your HDD in it, and there is a fan that blows onto it. Overall, I'm pleased with it.

    toolbox, this pic shows where you would put the sensor on a socket processor (I didn't take the pic though). Since I have a slot processor (Pentium 3) I put mine on the side, like you would put the sensor on a stick of ram. I put the other sensor on my hard drive right in the center. I'm going to move the hard drive sensor onto my video card's CPU when i overclock it. The fan is pretty small (only 40mm), so it only cools the drive 1 to 3 degrees, but it's better than nothing. If the pics on the earlier site didn't show it, you can mount a hard drive in this thing, and the fan on the front cools it.

    if you put it there wouldn't it interfere with the connection between the pins???
