    Just bought a new board and etc , Most of the readings on Speedfan indicates it's a bit high , have been running orthos for a few hours , btw.. what is Temp1 ? <- ACPI sensor ?
    how do i cool down the ACPI at AUX Temps ?

    here is my speedfan temp readings

    Intel 2160 1.8 @ 3Ghz ( 333x9 @ 1.365v)
    Abit IP35-E Motherboard
    2x1 Geil DDR667 Dual Channel Kit
    Palit Geforce 7600GT 256MB
    2x 240Gb Seagate SATA Drive
    Sony 16x DVDRW
    HEC Acepower 480W PSU
    3x Case Fans 1 Intake 2 Outtake

    hmm coretemp seems to be more accurate... the heat diffrence between the two cores is around 10c , when using only one of the core

    but i'm still concerned with the ACPI / AUX temps.... reaching around 60c on full load

    I actually uploaded a config for the IP35-E and have been in contact w/ the author of the program recently. He's in the process of posting it on the web site after we get everything straight. In the mean time, here's a copy of a post from when I was asked about it on abit's forums:

    I believe, rather than posting the entire config on here (which would be LONG), I'll post what I changed on mine. Not sure the length of time it takes for them to put the configs up. If you have questions on how to do these things, I'll be happy to try and help.

    Here's what I did (and was included in the config email I sent them):

    All settings to follow were made for and with Speedfan 4.33 Final.

    * Added offsets for both cores (Tjunction) +15, calibrated with CoreTemp, 100% accurate through numerous Orthos runs.
    * Added offset -14 for CPU, to reflect Tcase temp plus 1 degree, just to be safe.
    * Changed "AUX" to "PWM", calibrated with proprietary abit software (EQ)
    * Temp 1 seems to be an anomaly. Never changes from 51c, no matter what I do.
    * Same w/ GPU "Ambient" reading, always reads 0.
    * Disabled Temp 1 & GPU ambient in display.
    * Fans that can be controlled on this MB (SYS & CPU) are controlled from BIOS settings automatically or, if you disable that feature, can be controlled with speedfan.
    * After some testing with speed controls, these are the results:

    Speed02 = CPU fan header
    Speed04 = SYS fan header.

    Both are controlled as expected from Speedfan. Don't forget to assign their speed control to a temperature if you enable "Automatic Fan Speed" or it'll drop them to their minimum levels (which, if you haven't changed them, are 0).

    Speed01 & Speed03 are both the auxiliary fan headers and, as expected, are read-only with no control.

    * Also, the +12V reading is incorrect and there doesn't appear to be anything you can do about it. I just took it off the display. You can't offset a voltage to adjust it. The Vcore and AVcc (+3.3V) are dead on with abit EQ, so those are good to go.
    * The abit IP35-E and IP35 are almost the exact same MB with the main difference being the ICH9 & ICH9R SB respectively. The config SHOULD be the same. No IP-35 to test here though.
    * Not sure that it matters, but these settings have only been tested on BIOS 12 & 13beta. They changed the way the sensor is read through the BIOS from 10 & 11 (New = Tjunction, Old = Tcase).


    Right, so I guess instructions would be helpful.

    1. To change your offsets, click "Configure" and then go to the "Advanced" tab. Once there, do the following:

    For Tjunction (Core0 & Core1) - In the drop-down menu, select "INTEL CORE at $0 on ISA", click on "Temperature 1 offset" and then, at the bottom, change to "15". Make sure you mark the box labeled "remember it". Then, do the same for "Temperature 2 offset"

    For Tcore (CPU) - In the drop-down menu, select "Winbond W83627DHG at $290 on ISA", scroll down and click on "Temperature 2 offset" and then, at the bottom, change to "-14". Again, make sure you mark the box labeled "remember it".

    That does it for temperature offsets.

    2. Renaming a sensor can be done two ways. One may seem more difficult, but was easier for me. You'll need to edit your "speedfansens.cfg" file in the Speedfan directory you created on installation. I just found and changed changed "AUX" to "PWM".

    While in there, I also edited my HD temps to reflect what they were, which is simple enough to do. Where it says "Temperature [X] from [xxxxxx]", the "xxxxxx" will be your HDD's brand name. I just changed "name=HD0" & "name=HD1" to "name=HD0-Samsung" and "name=HD1-WDC" respectively. That way I know which one the temps are.

    Also renamed were Speed02 & Speed04 to "CPU Fan Speed" and "SYS Fan Speed" respectively.

    The second way renaming can be done was easier than I realized before editing my config. When in the Configuration menu, all you have to do is click on the name of what you want to edit to highlight it. Then, simply click again. It's like renaming a file without right-clicking. MUCH simpler for most folks. (Thanks Master of None) :)

    3. Removing readings from the display is the easiest, which is why I saved it for last. Simply click "Configuration" and un-check the ones you don't want (i.e. Temp1 & "Ambient" (an anomalous GPU reading)).

    Depending on what fans you have connected to actual headers, you may see fans running at "0". Just take them off your display until you connect a fan to it. My MB is full, so I see all four fans.


    I also edited my "Desired" and "Warning" temps. These will vary by personal preference more than anything...depends on how hard you want to push it. My "Desired" for CPU just reflects my normal idle temp of 35C and "Warning" reflects 5 below what is considered a HOT Tcase, set at 55C. Tjunction Desired & Warning are set at 44C and 70C respectively (44 reflects normal idle temp in my pretty warm room and 70 is again 5 below what is considered a HOT Tjunction.) Same w/ PWM, set at 43C Desired & 60C Warning

    In case you want to see the final product, here is a SS of testing @ nominal temps and here's one with them getting just a little warm. :) Note that I had taken the Samsung & WD labels off for the purposes of uploading my config.

    Hope that helps. If you have questions, ask & I'll try to help in any way I can.
