I got three sensors. cpu,chipset and power/aux(?sisoftsandra). My question is, where is the power/aux sensor located? Voltage regulators?

Currently using MBM5 and there I can choose from various sensors. But only one of them gives a correct temp. The others are way off (cpu -40 deg. C). What's up with them?

The mbm sensors aren't configured correctly - just play with them until they give reasonable values, then apply load and see if they are responsive.

All sensor locations on your mobo should be listed in it's manual... Does sandra tell you on what component the sensors are located?

MBM5 works just fine. I have correct readings for all sensor compared to bios.
Sandra calles my third sensor for "power/aux".
When I turn up fanspeed that it gets hotter(the sensor) lowering fanspeed temp goes down. That's reason I believe it's the voltage regulator or some other powerconsumption related stuff. Just curious...
