I have a VP6 motherboard and thought I only had 2 heat sensors. 1 for cpu1 and 1 for cpu 2. But when I ran Motherboard monitor it seems to indicate I have at least 3.

Sensor 1 <Unknowen>reads about 22c
Sensor 2 <CPU1>reads 36c <seti running full time>
Sensor 3<CPU2> reads 31 c but there is no cpu in the socket.

I have read through my manual and can't seem to figure out what the first sensor is for.

I asked over on the abit motherboard site and no one seems to know over there.

any help would be appreciated...
