The best way I found was to set the UTH at 80 deg F, and then watch where she (my taiwanese) spent most of her time, if she avoided the uth hide then it's too hot, if she spends all of her time in the hot hide then it's slightly too cold, I think I have it currently at 84, but, that is the uth temp, not her hot side temp, the heat has to go through everything and into her humid hide.

Every snake is different, you'll just have to figure out what your snake likes.
