    What else there is to monitor your temps/fans/voltages than the ASUS PROBE and MOTHERBOARD MONITOR? The MBM is relatively good, but it shows 2 of my 3 fan speeds wrong!! The Asus probe shows everything right, but it canīt show the temps on the tray! :(

    BTW, How many temp/fan sensors are there in the A7N8X (and where are they located)? The Asus probe shows two temp sensors and three fan sensors information? The MBM shows more(?) sensors, but I donīt know which are REAL and which arenīt! :rolleyes: :?: :?:

    Firstly who gives a **** about fan speeds? Now I am going to say that you can get the information on the MM site. But I am a nice guy and here are the temps:

    CPU: W83L785TS-S Diode
    System: Asus 1


    BTW: The A7N8X rocks! :cool:
    Box:
    [Mobo] Asus A7N8X w/ Modified 1003 Uber BIOS w/ Custom Boot logo
    [CPU] Athlon XP 2200+ Thoroughbred
    [Memory] 512 Samsung PC3200 DDR400 w/ Copper Heatsink(s)
    [Video Card] Geforce 3 ti200 128 DDR Special Gold Edition

    Cooling
    [Case] All aluminum Skyhawk case w/ custom cut blowhole
    [HSF] Volcano 11 Xaser Edition
    [Northbridge] ThermalTake Crystal Orb
    [Southbridge] Aluminum Northbridge heatsink attatched

    Operating System:
    [OS] Windows XP Pro w/ SP1

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    I already knew that CPU and system sensor...I guess there arenīt any more temp sensors on this board.

    BTW, isnīt this mobo fully compatible with the MBM (or speed adjustable fans)? I just installed the newest version of that and it wonīt show any of my three fan speeds right! There is three fan speed sensors on my board and if I adjust my rear case fan (Enermax 80mm, 1000~3000rpm) to lower or higher, then all the three fan speeds showed by the MBM will go up or down. The Asus PC Probe showed them just fine! :( :( Also the HTML Help says this about the Fan type:

    "There are 11 settings, /1 to /10 which divide the readings by that amount and *2 which muliplies the reading by 2. Default setting for 99% of all boards will be /1"

    If I keep the default settings, the program shows that my fans are spinning about 5000-6000rpm. My fans canīt spin over 3000rpm!!! I donīt think that my fans are so special, that the MBM canīt read them right!! I also donīt think that adjusting one fan should affect to the readings of the other fans!! :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Any ideas how I could get the right readings? :confused: :confused: :?:

    I managed to adjust everything on motherboard monitor to reflect the real readings, u just gotta play with the settings a bit.
    I even set it to email me on my mobile phone before shutting down if something fails.
    The only problem I had with it was it made 3dmark01 and 03 crash to desktop. So I make sure its off when testing.

    You have to configure it right, set fan1 to read from the right sensor etc, you should also disable all sensors not used so that they don't show up without monitoring anything. This software is IMHO the best there is for system monitoring. It's way better than that probe. You just can't get any better.. :shrug:

    Just go into the MBM console and reconfigure ya fan settings till ya get the right readings (some mobo's need fine tuning with MBM to get the readings right but it ain't hard).
