Where to put thermal display wire?

Hello all, I recently build a custom PC with an ASUS H81M-PLUS motherboard and a Zalman Z9 case, all is well but the case has a thermal display and a wire that is supposed to go somewhere. Can I please be guided as to where it may go? Keep in mind i am 13 and can't really get my hands on thermal compound AND I'm quite clumsy .

Here is what it looks like (in the red circle)


Thanks.

What type of connector is on the end ? If it`s USB then you would connect it to any usb header on the motherboard.

Why do you mention thermal compound ? What does it have to do with your question about the wire ?

I've heard elsewhere to put it on the CPU? And also the wire itself has a black coating on the end and a black ball thingy. ???

Basically where ever you feel like the temp needs monitoring the most,

Quote:
The sensor connects to the LED temperature display on the front of the case, and the user can position it to his or her liking throughout the case
About a third of the way down here,

so there's no way of putting it on the CPU?

It's basically a Thermocouple to sense the temperature inside the case so you can adjust the fans below that readout on the front.

You can put it where ever you like but it is not specifically for the CPU, think of the thermostat in your home that reads the temp in your house, then you adjust your heater or AC accordingly.
