i tried uninstalling the soyo mon. and i still have the same problem mbm will work for about the first 10 sec. then the temps will just keep climbing untill they start over again or they just go to the max a stay there any suggestions
You don't have it reading the correct diodes. There is one diode that does that. Try using different diodes, a little testing will reveal which are the correct ones. When I get home I will look at mine and post the correct ones.
well for the cpu it reads from a little chip on the board under the processor not like my old abit kr7a where you could bend up the diode but it will also read right from the cores diode that is the main one i am haveing prolems with i cant get it to even read at a steady temp it will start about right then go up untill it resets and goes to like -130 somehting then keeps going around
Soyo's hardware monitor is a CPU hog. Get rig of it. MBM works great if you set it right. Try the new beta version. It was updated for the newer boards. Also you should keep the latest BIOS upgrade for your board along with the latest drivers from VIA.
Well guys I just finished installing my shiny new kt400. One question though. I am running SANDRA and I'm looking at a PCI temperature reading of 54 C. Does anybody have any idea of how accurate the PCI temperature readings are. All of my other temps are nice and cool.
To get the right temps go with the LM90-Remote sensor for on die temp, for the external die sensor go with the Sis950/ITE8705F-2 and for the case temps go with the Sis950/ITE8705F-1 for this one you might have to add 3C compensation like I did( I have a compnurse right under the board temp sensor).
