Welcome To The Forums!!!!!

.....and to the addiction



The 2nd link above deals with accurate testing of HSF & has a primer on how to get accurate temp readings. Remember that even the a thermistor touching the side of the core is still on a secondary heat path giving you still unreliable readings & slow reaction times. Internal Temperature Sensors are only good as long as you calibrate them.

Why Many Thermal Measurements Are Not Valid




CALIBRATION INSTRUCTIONS but not for all systems.
