Here's a couple questions for you guys.

1) what does the third temperature probe measure in MBM. I know 1 is cpu temp and 2 is case but what is 3? mine is normally around 5-6 more than my cpu (cpu at 38 and unknown at 44).


2) I was planning on using my old 3 pc speaker set. L,R and Sub but it only has a headphone jack. I got an adapter at Radio Shack to convert the headphone to RCA but all I got out is static. I know the sound card works. (borrowed a digital set of speakers) and I know the speakers work (tested on old puter). Is it possible to get the analog speakers to work with digital card?

Also I was worried about all the claims of flaky memory and mobos but I've been running solid all weekend with prime95 and sisoft. Although I do get some sisoft blue screens but that's before I even do any testing. weird.

Thanks,
Jeff

the third temp is for the "northbridge",and are the speakers amplified?

I went to best buy to buy a 5.1 system. But was appalled at the prices. so I just got these.

Wow the northbridge is that hot. Is that a normal temp for it or should I try to make it lower?

Thanks,

on the dragon+ you have a fan on it,it's ok,that temp fluctuates alot.it's ok.
