We all know it gets hot inside a PC, but it isn't always easy to know exactly how hot or where exactly the hotspots are. Maybe you are just wondering if the OC you have managed means you should get a fan for your northbrige, or Hedgehogs for your VRAM. Well, how about this handy little tool, the Raytek MT4 Non-Contact Infrared Thermometre.
"For computer users heat can be anything from a minor byproduct to a brick wall that halts our overclocking plans dead, and how you deal with it can vary just as much, with the more timid of us reaching for maybe a couple of 12v case fans or a water cooling system while the mavericks strap on their spurs and go in search of a little liquid Nitrogen and some good gloves."
