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

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
