    bordench What's a Dremel?

    First off I'm wondering where I should place a motherboard thermal sensor/probe to measure my video cards temps?

    I ask because I've placed mine touching the side of the chip and I'm getting temps over 60 degrees. It's a brand new Visiontek Ti200 and that seems kind of high but i hadn't checked what it was before I made some recent changes. The changes involved taking off the heatsink/fan cleaning off the old thermal paste, applying some silver compound and adding the sensor.

    So my questions are:
    1. Where should the sensor go?
    2. What are acceptable temps?


    P.S. I also tried placing it on the back of the card - the temps got up to 55 degrees in that position!
