Hello everyone! I am new to having a computer that I actually care about
My last computer was an old Dell Pentium D. Temperatures never once crossed my mind.
I built a Core i7 with the Antec 1200 case and the stock cooling system on the Intel DX58SO board.
My problem comes that this case pulls air in the front, and exit's it out the back. The location of my computer is in the corner, with the back facing a wall.
I have been doing a lot of reading, and am not sure how to measure the temps of my build. I am not looking to overclock or anything, just want to make sure that I dont harm this new computer
During summer, the front of the computer is right next to where the cold air comes out, which rocks. But during the winter it doesn't do anything.
Is there something I can buy and just plug into the computer? Something without software? Are there connectors on the board for that?
