    Odd temperature reading

    Hello,

    I had some troubles recently when my PC just reboot itself. So I figured it was overheating and got CPUID to monitor the temperature.

    CPUID reported an a strange section "Winbond W83791D" (see image) and its showing 3 rows where the temperature is 120C!!

    Can anyone tells me what this is please? I see the 3 rows so I thought it must be the RAM but I only have 2 ram slots (1 x 1GB) installed. So it can't be the ram. Also I am guessing the section "ITE IT87" is the ram section?

    The chipset fan on the ASUS A8N MB died so I think may be the chipset is overheating and causing the reboots but which of these is the chipset temperature please (see image)?

    Thanks

    Probably all three. You'd better turn your computer off fast or aleast get a fan and place it near the heatsink on the motherboard before some permanent damage happens.

    Can you elaborate what you mean by "all 3" please? All 3 rams? but I only have 2 slots of RAM installed.

    Also the 120C does not change. It stays like that no matter what.

    I am confused now

    lol sry didnt make myself clear enough, all three will be the motherboard northbridge chipset temperature, your ram temperature will not show up.

    Touch your northbridge heatsink, if you get a third degree burn then you know those temperatures belong to your motherboard. (It was a joke, dont do it.) XD

    you'll have 3 points on the mobo where you can connect a thermal sensor, it is reading at it's max temp as nothing is connected so it is picking it up as very high impedance across the points and therefore *thinks* it is very hot...

    would be too strange for it not to alter at all, unless it instantly hits the limit and stays there... does it feel warm?
