Just noticed something that the CPU temp in the BIOS is 10 degrees hotter then listed in the Asus PC Probe in windows. BIOS would say Im at 50c while the ASUS probe would say 40c. Got the lastest version and flashed the CMOS too. Any ideas on this?

I concur the thing sucks use your bios. I also think asus probe gets your reading from the sensor you stick over or under your cpu and bios takes it from the cpu itself. Still I'd trust the bios reading.

If I glanced at a spilt box of tooth picks on the floor, could I tell you how many are in the pile. Not a chance, But then again I don't have to buy my underware at Kmart.

Probe sux. Getting the latest version means nothing. I've found that different versions provide different results, and that for every board there's likely an accurate version to be found...if you try enough versions!

Trust temp. readings from Bios better. Asus probe is about 3-4c higher than actual temp.

Could you suggest a better one? Normally I donot use such thing for I always viewd them as a waste of resources but since I got a crap load now I can afford such things.

If your board supports MBM. I have an Abit IS7, a fairly common board, but MBM doesn't support that sensor yet.

LOL, every version is a bit different, every board is a bit different, you want me to take a guess as to which version would be appropriate?
