Processor sensor should be installed between processor and cooler... but you don't need it. You get your CPU temperature without it. It is used to emergency shutdown...computer shuts down when processor reaches shutdown temperature...

As Da-Bu says, most motherboards have temperature sensors built-in, and they are accessable via the BIOS or through a third party software like Motherboard Monito or HMonitor.  I have never heard of a hd sensor; is it a temperature sensor?

You can stick it on top of your HD.... you probably get some sort of glue with it... I also never heard of HD sensor...

Don't put the sensor between the Heatsink and CPU this does not work, in fact I have burn't a sensor up this way.  The sensor needs to be put underneath the CPU in the center of the socket.   You can do this by making sure the wires are split all the way up to the sensor.  Lay the sensor in the center of the CPU socket, then place the CPU on.  


As for the Hard drive sensor.  I would think that you could use some thermal tape or scotch tape for that matter and place it on the top of your hard drive.
