    I'm guessing it's the clock generator chip on a mobo, but...I may be off.

    Anyone can confirm what it is exactly?

    TIA

    Edit for my own Answer

    upon tackling the search from a different angle (namely googling a specific LPCIO reported by CPU-Z) I was able to find out that LPCIO is actually 2 acronyms Run Together:

    LPC I/O
    Low Pin Count (referring to the chip package) I/O (Input/Output)

    I now believe that most monitoring programs actually get their data from these chips on the mobo.
