    What is my AUX and why is it so god damn hot?

    Hey folks,

    So i have downloaded and installed speedfan just to try and get a better look at my temps. And well i have a little fire symbol against my AUX so naturally got me a little woried. So as the title suggests, what is this AUX and why is it 50+ degrees?

    Specs: Abit IP35-E, Q6600, 4Gb RAM, 640Mb 8800GTS

    Hard to say. It could be anything from CPU core temp, to chipset temp, to a purely fictional reading. See how the temp changes when running some stress tests.

    Its often fictional.

    Mine is -2 celcius, and I know for sure I don't have any liquid nitrogen or anything like that in my PC.

    Anything in uGuru or BIOS that matches the speedfan aux reading? If so then you have your answer.

    Edit: Umm.. actually not sure the IP35-E supports uGuru

    Re: What is my AUX and why is it so god damn hot?

    Take note of the various temps you've got, quick restart and check in bios to what matches up. Should give you a better clue!

    Re: What is my AUX and why is it so god damn hot?

    I'd say it's fictional. I have AUX on my old PC and it sticks at 46oC no matter what. Freezing day, boiling day, 100&#37; stress... 46oC all the time

    Re: What is my AUX and why is it so god damn hot?

    Looked in the bios, the corrosponding temp there belongs to the PWM (as mentioned earlier this is what is reported by AbitEQ). It got all the way up to 57 degrees last night while playing LOTRO. No mention of what it is in my motherboard manual either

    Bah, you're all wusses. I get 125C in speedfan aux on c2d/xp64.

    Re: What is my AUX and why is it so god damn hot?

    Well doing some googling, it looks like this AUX/PWM is the heatsink/cooler on the Mobo. Not sure how hot this can get, gonna fiddle with my fans (antec 900 case but everything is just on low) to try improve some cold air circularion.

    Re: What is my AUX and why is it so god damn hot?

    On my IP35 Pro, I don't think SpeedFan gives a single sensible reading. I get my CPU regularly swiching between 125 deg C to sub-zero in half a second

    Re: What is my AUX and why is it so god damn hot?

    Speedfan and AbitEQ are virtually the same for the temps they give, so either they are both wrong or....

    I had the same issue - 127 degrees celcius on speedfan, different mobo. Everest wouldn't display it, so I stick to Everest. Then I moved to an IP35pro board and Everest started displaying an invalid temp of 122 as well. Upgrading to the latest beta (see their boards) fixed that.

    Re: What is my AUX and why is it so god damn hot?

    Download motherboard monitor 5 (mbm5) and see what that says. It sounds like a false reading although PWM stands for "pulse width modulation" which is to do with voltage regualation (most likely for the cpu). My DFI has a PWMIC (IC = integrated circuit) and this is a small chip that sits next to the power socket and gets a temperature reading in smartguardian.

    Some of these PWM have a very high upper temperature limit I think mine is 125&#176;C. It looks like this chip is under the heatpipe on the abit motherboard so it may be worth taking off the heat pipe and reinstalling with some quality thermal paste.
