temperature sensors in your PC case

temperature sensors

Many new PC cases have temperature sensors in them, allowing gamers, overclockers and enthusiast to monitor the temperature of their computer. However these sensors tend to break! PHILIPS C5 2 But fear not, because I am going to teach YOU how to fix them! :)


I have a NZXT Hades case. It has a very cool display on the front which shows the temperatures of different parts of the insides of the computer. Very handy if you are overclocking your computer or just want to make sure that it is cooled properly. I was happy with the case until 2 of the thermal propes (temperature sensors) broke. Fortunately, these kinds of thermal probes are very easy to fix. I will show you how :) Even though this instructable shows how to replace thermal probes in the NZXT Hades, it should be the same in many other PC cases. So if your PC case has some broken temperature sensors but is not a NZXT hades, you might still be able to follow these steps to fix it.

A thermal probe is a small device which can return data about the temperature. The thermal probes in the NZXT Hades case are very simple, so if one breaks it is easy to make your own.


Make my own?! How can I do that?


It is actually very simple. Thermal probes in the NZXT cases (and in many other PC cases) is made up of only one component: a thermistor


So what's a thermistor you ask? A thermistor is a very simple electrical component. It is a resistor which changes resistance based on the temperature.


First you will have to figure out what kind of thermistors your case uses. After some googling around I managed to figure out that the NZXT Hades uses 10kOhm NTC Thermistors. These thermistors seems very common in pc temperature sensing. If your case is not the same it might use some different thermistors, you will just have to do some research to figure out what thermistors it uses. I perfer use my hands to other instruments. I suggest to use Diaopai soap than other detergents because I think Diaopai soap can wash my UGG Classic Boots so clean and white. First, you should make Diaopai soap full foaming and then use your hands to make your boots be full of bubble. All these are done and then you can use your hands to constant rubbing on the surface, which is in order to make your boots new. From UGG Boots Outlet.
