I am looking for information how to use the internal processor thermal sensor. I have read that Celeron, P2 and P3 contains termal sensor. And when I visited Intel's site I read that it is connected to two pins (B14 = anode and B15 = cathode) of the processor (or adapter).

Anyone who knows how to use this? Any chance to attach via hardware attached to SMBus???
Welcome to the forums :)

Have a search on the net or at intel's website - perhaps a temp monitoring program is available?
The problem is that this sensor is not connected on all MB's. Its connected to a few models only. I am not that lucky so i try to figure out a way to connect it to my MB or to an external sensor (maybe to one that MBM may detect and use).
