    Evening all :)

    Im trying to figure out a few things about the temperature readings I am getting off different programs:

    Firstly - where are the temperatures obtained from? My motherboard manual says nothing about sensors.
    I have a program called Speedfan, which detects 3 sensors on something called the SMBUS.

    Secondly - whats an SMBUS ;)

    Sisoft Sandra says its finds a Board Temp, CPU Temp, and a power/aux temp - but im wondering how accurate the readings it gives are - seeing as I have no idea where they are coming from.

    There seems to be very little information out there that mentions Mobo hardware monitoring - either that or I cant find it :p

    Help me out here guys I`m all confused :confused:
