Heat sensor for CPU

Hi, I am doing a science fair project on overclocking. Using direct water cooling I have gotten a Pentium 90 to 233 MHz. It has run for days without any problems, but in order to validate my results I need some type of quanitative data. I was wondering whether or not somebody made a heat sensor that can be placed under the CPU or something like that. Thanks for your help.
Welcome to the Forums!!!!

Second--What kind of quantative data are you looking for, it was kind of sketchy in your description. Are you looking to see if watercooling your CPU brought the temperature down, or just if it helped overclock? I'm not sure if a motherboard that old would have a temperature sensor on it or not.
I would have IM'ed you, but you weren't on.
One more thing..........

One more thing--assuming that this IS a Pentium that you're talking about, this thread would probably benefit from being in the "Intel CPUs" section. But, since you're new, we'll cut you some slack. Rules for posting (if you haven't already them) are here.
Unofficial rules (not rules per say, but we try to keep them are here.
If you have any more questions about posting, they should be answered by any of the threads in the "Forum FAQ's and Guidelines" section.
Happy Posting!!:D
temp probe

A compu-nurse is what you're looking for... I'm not sure where exactly you'd stick the probe on an old cpu for a good reading though. They run $15. Probably find it at an online vendor like newegg.com or hardcorecooling.com

Radioshack might aslo have it or something similar.
