Hey guys

Can someone please tell me how to read the temp of the Northbridge on my ASUS A8N-SLi.

I'm about to change chipset cooler and i would really like to be albe to check if my new cooler is mounted correctly (by checking hte temp)

So; which sensor is displaying the Northbridge Temp and which program can read it? (if any can)

Thank you

Easiest way to check is in the BIOS.

In my BIOS I have a menu called Hardware Monitor (PC Health in some BIOS) and in there I have a value called M/B Temp 32*C but that is not the northbridge, because I doenst respond by increasing the value if i stop the chipset cooler....

Which A8N do you have?

A8N-SLI Premium or Deluxe?

If you have the premium, you cannot stop the chipset cooler because it is a heatpipe design! It's fanless.

Maybe thats why it isnt the Premium I have ;)  Btw it is mentioned several times that it is the A8N SLi, neither Premium nor Deluxe. :)
