 This measurement can be done without the processor installed. If one is installed, the firmware shouldn'​t make these pins an output, but keep the default, input. This measurement can be done without the processor installed.

-Without a thermistor connected, both pins should read full 3.3\_volts (5\_volts on 5\_V controllers). Connecting a thermistor at room temperature should drop this not much, but a bit. Typically to 3.1\_... 3.2\_volts.+Without a thermistor connected, both pins should read full 3.3\_volts (5\_volts on 5\_V controllers).

 Warming the thermistor by hand might change that slightly, perhaps by another 0.05\_V drop. Warming the thermistor with a lighter or soldering iron (be careful to not overheat it!), should drop that voltage further, down to very low readings, like 0.5\_V. Warming the thermistor by hand might change that slightly, perhaps by another 0.05\_V drop.
