    asus p3b-f questions (re: hwc review)

    i am in search of a great new motherboard to replace my bh6 as i need to give this one to my sis when i rebuild her computer after a strange meltdown of sorts. anyways, i looked at the hwc reviews and saw this on the asus p3b-f, and was just wondering what it meant exactly:
    CPU temperature is monitored by the ASUS ASIC through the CPU's internal thermal diode (on Pentium III, Deschutes Pentium II, and PPGA370 Celeron in conjunction with the ASUS S370-D or S370-L transform card) to prevent system overheating and system damage.
    does this mean that my celly 466 has an intermal diode?? thanks
    specs:
    Dual Celly 533
    Abit BP6
    512MB RAM
    Asus v6800 DDR Pure 64MB
    2 * 40gig maxtors in RAID
    2 * 15gig maxtors in RAID
    1 * 20gig maxtor

    That pretty much means you need to use an ASUS S370-D or a S370-L (PPGA adapter) in conjunction with your celly466 in order to get a temp reading. The other processors can do it stand alone but not the PPGA370 cellys.

    oh, i just didn't nkow that any cpu's had an internal thermal diode, silly me so is everyone who has like 3 thermal readings on their mobo's getting one from the cpu, and the other 2 from the motherboard? (eg abit-be6-2, i saw duckman had three readings). oh wait, but duckman has a 466 too, hm, or am i mistaken
