Need Temperature Sensor with LCD


J

Jay Chan

I am looking for a temperature sensor that I can place near the CPU
and show the temperature outside the case in a small LCD display.

I am thinking of building an enclosure to house the PC in order to
minimize noise. But I am wondering whether this may increase the
temperature inside the case. Therefore, I want to test it inside an
enclosure that I have already built for a different purpose to see if
the CPU temperature may raise or not. In order to do this, I need to
find a way to check the before/after CPU temperature. Unfortunately,
my PC is a Dell Dimension 4300 that doesn't have a temperature sensor
on the motherboard (it has a P4 though); therefore, I cannot use
software such as Motherboard Monitor to check the temperature.

I appreciate any suggestion on this subject. Thanks.

Indoor/Outdoor digital thermometer with sensor attached to heatsink. Cheap.
Easy. Available everywhere. There are also some of the fan/speed control
accessories that will do that with a small probe you can tape to the bottom
of the cpu, but they are expensive and not really needed for what you want
to do. The cheap thermometer will show you the temperature difference just
fine.

Great! I will go look for them in Home Depot or Radio Shack to see if
they are suitable for my application. Thanks.

Digital Doc (don't know version number). Has multiple heat sensors which you
can place anywhere you want, plus fan speed monitors, alarms (user set).
Small LCD readout. Link to review:
It seems like a bit more than I really need. But this confirms that
there is such a device available. I just need to keep looking. Thanks.

Checkout the CompuNurse. Has two temperature probes and very compact.

It seems to be very nice, and its price is right. I will check it out.

Thanks for the link.

BTW, Have you tried it? Have you ordered anything from that store
before? Thanks again.
