How to make a Thermistor out of a Laptop Battery
Thermistors are an important part in today's overclocking tool chest. They let us know how hot or cold our processors are running, and they aid in the search for the best cooling setup by allowing accurate temperature measurement in tight spots.
We bought this battery at a local electronic surplus store for about $6 US, inside were two thermistors and what appeared to be two thermal cut-off switches. My understanding is that these sensors help to keep NiMH batteries from reaching harmful temperatures. They serve the exact same usefullness to the overclocker.
