Muropaketti tries new style of temperature probe mounting

Muropaketti, the Finnish hardware review- and news site run by famous Finnish overclocker Sampsa who recently broke the 3DMark Vantage world record together with German top-clocker Stummerwinter, has shown pictures of how they will monitor the CPU temperature under subzero cooling. Instead of drilling a hole in the side of the CPU LN2 container, they’ve made a small hole in the heat spreader of a Phenom II, giving them a lot more accurate measurement data of the CPU temperature. Although it hasn’t been tested in practice so far, we’ll be following this news item in the next couple of weeks and hope to find out if there’s a significant difference between both approaches.
