    I have the following setup:
    Newcastle 3500+
    6800GT AGP
    Gigabyte K8NS Ultra 939 motherboard

    and some other random parts in there.

    Anyways, I'm going to be picking up an Opteron 170 this week, I thought i'd look up the temperature situation I have in there. (Never bothered before). Here's a screenshot of Speedfan:


    I'm having a hard time identifying which temperature is which.....
    I have a Lian-Li PC65B case:
    There are fans all over the place.
    I'm using this Zalman CNPS7000B-cu heatsink:

    And I'm pretty sure I applied the Arctic silver just the right amount. Not the first, second, or 10th computer i built now.....

    I'm wondering wtf is @ 59 degrees??? Is that the core diode reading? What is "remote". Which of those temperatures is my case temp, cpu temp? The only ones i can sort of tell are the hard drive temperatures.

    Please enlighten me. Any help appreciated.

    I know it's not the video card temp, cuz that's at:

    on my rig the temp 1 is the cpu temp.
    temp 2 is the mobo temp
    temp 3 is nothing,27c
    i also have a second temp 1 which looks like the nf4 chipset temp at around 38-40c
    my board is an asus a8n-e
    see if this helps.i run motherboard monitor and i can compare the temps and see if they match may want to run mbm and see if it works on your board.
