These days, nothing beat a thermal imager.

I have the low-end "Satir Hotfind" camera and it makes it so much
easier to spot any kind of thermal problems in electronics.

Now, on the other hand, if we are talking about temperature control,
then I would envy Johns HP2804A and would probably not bother with
trying to measure the PCB temp, but instead plunk the entire thing
and the probe into a suitable isolated oilbath :-)

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
