    Kow accurate is the CPU heat sensor on the 8KHA+?

    Man (and Woman, if you're reading) this 8KHA+ is the sweetest......

    Q - How accurate is the CPU temp monitor reading in the BIOS?
    We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that works.
    How do you recognise something that is still technology?
    A good clue is if it comes with a manual...

    Depends on the heatsink (and whether or not it can actually touch the chip like my Epox can't). If it's just sitting back there testing the air...then not very.

    Here is a good article on this.

    What are your temps? I am running the same mobo and similar HSF (Swifty MCX462). I am at 24c at mobo and 33c at CPU. This is idle (well light usage anyway!) at 1.88 vcore 2.7 ddr voltage and a 149 FSB. I have 7 case fans though

    I've just got it set up stock just now (the performance boost over a PIII 600 is nice.....)

    MBM and the BIOS are reading the core as 39C and the case as 27C

    Another question: Where exactly are the three temp sensors? I'm hunting on the net, but any info appreciated.

    How do you do the pencil trick?

    When you say pencil trick you mean unlock the CPU? If so the pencil trick does not work on the XP's. You can do this though:

    Hey RDD, why don't you take a look at the guide Joe C. did here, or take a look at the other ones on the same page.

    Good luck Mate!

    It appears that some are missing something...

    You use a good chicken to do it.

    See the little smiley winking?

    I was joking about the pencil trick..........

    I know how to unlock XP's. I'm waiting to see if Mr B can pull it off first. If he can, then there's hope for the rest of us!
