Description

Hello,

Sorry for reposting, but there is something interesting I noticed about the

A7V333 motherboard, couple of days after I posted my earlier ticket(1377).

With the latest BIOS upgrade (1017) for the A7V333 motherboard, the CPU

temperature readings are in keeping with the temperature read by the BIOS only

with the following statement in the chip "as99127f-*" section of the

sensors.conf file:

compute temp2 (@*30/43)+25, (@-25)*43/30

However with an older BIOS revision (1011), the BIOS actually displays a higher

temperature and in this case, the following line displays a temperature that is

in keeping with the temperature reported by the BIOS:

compute temp2 @*2.0, @/2.0

There seems to have been a change in the temperature reporting algo. somewhere

in between the 1011 to 1017 BIOS revisions for the Asus A7V333 motherboard,

though the BIOS update notes on the website do not mention so explicitly.

The question is, what is the right temperature? Is it what was displayed

earlier, with the 1011 version of the BIOS, or is it the lower temperature that

is displayed with the 1017 version of the BIOS?

Regards,

Vinu. --- I would guess that the temperature reported by the latest version of your BIOS

is the correct one. If you've adjusted your compute formula to match that, what

more can you do?

Keyword is "guess". The only people who know for sure are ASUS.
