Ok, I have a 1.0 Ghz T-bird and a Coolermaster EP5-6I11 hsf. I am in the process of putting my computer together, and when the motherboard posts and I go into the BIOS, the temperature read by the thermistor on my KT7A was about 36 degrees C. Now I know this is pretty hot, but is it decent for an idle temp? Also, does anyone know how far off the KT7A thermistor is from the actual temperature in most cases? One more question...where exactly do you put the thermistor on a digital thermometer thingy to get the reading of the cpu temp? I'm thinking of getting one to get a more accurate reading.
