    Approx what temps?

    Is there a modern mobo util (in the calibre of the discontinued MBM5)
    that measure temps for modern mainboards?

    Why not use MBM5 ?

    Is the temp your main concern or performance. you should select the chip
    that meets your requirements then tweak the cooling to keep it well within

    most mobo's come with a monitor

    Temp is relative to load , enviroment , internal cooling , overclocking (if

    I set up an AM2 system recently. MBM5 does not read the CPU and mobo
    temps correctly (all readings on all sensors are negative).
    Yes I know, but not this partic board unfortunately.
    My question remains: Under the same circumstances, which is cooler:
    Intel Core 2 Duo or Athlon 64 X2?
