Temps Okay?

Hi,

I have just installed HWmonitor on one of my computers to monitor the temps I have attached a screenshot of what is displayed I know that TMP 0 is the motherboard and that TMP 1 is the CPU. But I am not sure what the TMP 2 is for and its running at 79c which seems on the hot side.

The specs for this systems are as follows:

XFX ATI Radeon 5770 1024MB GDDR5

AMD Phenom II X2 555 Processor running at stock speeds 3.20Ghz

OCZ Fatal1ty 550w Silent SLI Ready ATX2 Power Supply

Corsair XMS3 TwinX 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-10666C9 1333MHz Dual Channel Kit Code TW3X4G1333C9A

Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3.


Any help would be appreciated

Probably a phantom reading, meaning that the sensor chip supports it but there is no sensor for it. Pretty sure that HWMonitor works the same as Speedfan in that it takes the readings directly from the sensor chip and not from the bios, which is why readings like that show up (and in Speedfan can be turned off).

Leave it open and run a game or some other system intensive program and then check the readings again. If it is a phantom reading and that 79 reading doesn't change, then you can ignore it.
