Ive heard of the temp diodes being off by as much as 3 C. Does anyone know how to verify their accuracy and possibly calibrate them? Also, What about Abit's Hardware doctor Vs. Motherboard Monitor....any diffrerences in how they read the temps? Im using a Cel566@850 @ 1.6v on an Abit BE6-II. By the way, where is the second temp diode located on the BE6?... Not the CPU diode, and not the external wire thermistor. Thanks in advance -ad
I know only that Mbm read directly the sensor and not report temperatures readed trought Bios that somethimes can add compensation.
