    Hey pplz

    Just wondering where this mobo takes its cpu temps from?

    It gets it from the CPU Socket, if your wondering how to get the Core
    temp aswell, use Motherboard Monitor.

    Tried it already, kinda fucked my comp, so not gonna use it, plus, it didnt
    display the core temp, just case and socket temp.

    From my experience with my A7N8X v2.00 (non-dlx), at full load the
    socket is about 12C lower then the die temp, at idle about only about a
    5C-6C difference. Asus Probe reads the socket temp, ya stupid I know! :)

    Just tried it again, seems to be working properly now :) b4 it didnt find
    any primary sensor, now it does. Cant get cpu diode temp. any sugestions?

    Thx for that. I got downloaded the rar, and used that. before using the new
    ini files, the only sensors that were selectable for the temp were asus1-4,
    custom and none.

    Despite having a different dashboard, it now shows my diode as 51degC,
    socket at 46degC and case as 27degC.

    I had problems with MBM, sometimes it won't select the diode, can't read
    my chassis fan, and it makes a lot of games freeze for a flash of a
    second which gets really annoying after awhile so I just use Asus probe
    now. ;p

    Even though it doesnt read the diode?

    Ya I already know what the difference is, if the socket is 50C I know
    the CPU is around 62C, it just take a little longer for the socket to
    warm up, heck until a few years ago I never even bothered to monitor any
    of the temps and I still don't monitor them 24/7. I only keep an eye on
    them on newly built systems and when first overclocking with different
    settings. My Nf2/Barton setup be 8 months old next week, if it blows up
    now, I'll just replace it with an AMD64. ;P
