NZXT Sentry LX probe placement?

Recommended Posts

HI i have the titled fan controller and the manual isnt very comprehensive. I am wondering where to place the sensors to maximise the auto cooling feature.

 

i have 4 case fans (might also use a 5th on side panel if i can fit it due to the d-14)

 

where is it best to place heat sensors? they say near each fan but i was maybe thinking of using a few sensors on the cpu heatsink? so they all speed up if a little hot?

 

anyone got one that could help me get the most from this?

 

cheers

I put one one the CPU heat sink, one by the GPU, One on the north bridge, and one by the top exhaust fan and another by the reaer exhaust fan. I used those temps to adjust the fan controller to reduce the temps.

Just make sure the temp probe is as close to the heatsource as possible. This will ensure that your controller gets he hottest and most accurate reading.

thanks guys - i could stick one between the heatpipes on the cpu plate, that would be a good place i guess?
