    CPU - on the base of the heatsink, the solid block at the bottom before the fins start.
    Case - I'd say in open space near the top of the case.
    Power Supply - That's a hard one, i'd put it near to the PS outtake fan.
    HDDs - Just stick it on the top (metal) side of one of your HDDs, prefebly the one that has the lowest amount of airflow pointing at it as that's the one you really want to know the temp of.
