How to improve Temps Measures Accuracy

Hi All,

I have heard that the temps measures (cpu,mb) of the Asus A7V133 mb
<b>arent accuracy.</b>

<i>note:
i think this is the case with a lot of mb because they have the same measure mechanism which is a thermistor placed near the cpu Core. i know also that last cpu (eg AMD XP) come with an integrated thermistor but this is another history...</i>

I think this is true but what is the error margin ?

<b>Because it's important for overclocking, we need accurate temps.</b> :eek: 

So how can we correct this problem to have exact temps ?
Maybe we have to modify physically the mb or we have to put some special temp add-ons on it...
is it possible ?, what are they ?, how can we mod the mb for ?, i dont know...


Thanks all for some knowledge about.

Labdog I use a temp probe that I have placed between the hsf and wafer placed next to the core. (not touching the core)
On my ASUS A7V266-E the BIOS and MB monitor shows @6c higher than the probe. On my ASUS CUSL2-C the BIOS, MB monitor
and probe temps are all identical.

thanks.
but i saw its accuracy is 1°C
& i don't think you can measure precisely the cpu Core with ?

thanks. it's also my opinion after have read this article.

there is just something odd because it has an <b>1°C accuracy</b> but a <b>0.1°C to 0.3°C resolution</b>.

You don't think it's a little strange ?
