Default Temperature Sensors Location

I a starting my E_HERMS build and want to know where everyone is placing the temp sensors from the PIDs. What's better in the keggle or T off the valves? Any help and pics would be greatly appreciated..

A lot of people T off of the valves, I'm going to be using a T from my sightglass. Or you could always put the probe by itself. That's just another hole to drill though...

You want the sensor as close as possible to your heat source in either HERMS or RIMS. That improves the reliability and response of your heating controls.
