Don't know where to put this question really.

Does anyboy know of a loggable ambient temperature sensor which can be connected to the computer ?

The T-Balancer comes with software which *may* allow for logging (not sure).

Expensive and hard to find, though :(

Where should I put the temperature probe in order to have an ambient reading?

Outside the case or just very close to the intake. It's basically room temperature.

The probe must be suspended in the air to have accurate readings ?

The air changes temperature faster than the metal surrounding it. And right now the temperature of the metal in my case in the lower front is a couple degrees higher than the table it sits on. I can't measure air temp with an IR thermometer.
