    Unsure



    Something isn't right is it? How do I know what Temp1, Temp2, and Temp3 is? Which is my CPU, HDD, and stuff?

    EDIT: While playing Cutie Quake in the board's arcade:

    Im pretty sure temp 1 is cpu, 2 is mobo, and 3 is hdd. None of the temps are critical but you should do something to bring the temps down.

    You sure those temps aren't too high? I don't know much about CPU temps, but the little flame icon worries me. How would I bring the temps down?

    I couldn't figure out how to use the first app, it was just a graph with nothing on it. And the second app kept saying my HDD's don't provide temps.

    your hard-drive lives up to its name at least

    download everest
    http://www.lavalys.com/products/over...?pid=1&lang=en

    it'll probably tell you which sensor is which


    maybe take a side panel off your case and check the IDE cables aren't messing up airflow will help

    Yes those temps are too high, im just saying it aint at melting point yet. Add a few case fans and are you using the original thermal pad or paste?

    I have two hard drives, my main 40GB Western Digital Drive, and a second 4GB Quantum Fireball. Now if Temp3 was my HDD's temperature, it would be the 40GB one right?

    Downloading Everest right now...
