Does the shack sell those flat thermistors or just the little blue round ones? I need some of the flat variety and was wondering where I can get them? I don't need an attached readout, just the little ends.

William, I have yet to be able to source them and I have looked high and low. Perhaps an email to Enermax might yield something. That's the only thing I haven't tried.

i will try that. Do the little blue ones work well for say ambient monitorings and chipsets?

Oh my! If Hoot don't know where they are, I fear all is lost. I wonder if you could buy them from the folks who make the Digital Doc5. If you find them please post the whereabouts. I ain't none too confident of my Asus Probe readings and may try to mount one in the heatsink also.

well I found a guy that would sell me 6(its an asus connector) for $37.00 total. Good deal? I think it is pricey.

i've also looked for them everywhere!!

normal ones will do for ambient temps or anywhere they'll fit, but it's hard to get specs for them as well.

I wanted to get a thermistor to measure some temperature (not CPU). I have one sensor connection left on my motherboard. I am supose to use the asus thermistor (10kohm). Since I am having a tough time finding a 10Kohm thermistor does anyone know if I can use a 20kohm thermistor. What is the difference? Is it for different temperature ranges?

The rating (10k or 20k ect) is the resistance at a certain temp usually 25c i think. If your supposed to use a 20k, then a 20k will not work, because it will supply 10k resistance at, for example 15c, rather than at 25c. They have 10k thermistors at the Shack, so you shoud be able to find them.

If they are made by ASUS I think it's a pretty good deal.(A few years ago I had to pay ~$15 for one)

You can use a 20K thermistor but it will give you much lower readings, Thus not correct.(If temp goes up resistance goes down)
