The P3V4X reads the temp of an on-die thermistor. But I have high temps as well. With a celkeron [email protected], 2.1V and it spikes above 60 under load. I got a Golden Orb, and some bog standard grease> It goes up and down instanly, and the HSF doesn't even get hot.
I got a Soyo SY 6VCA coupled with a Pentium III 450 @ 600, and I never get readings higher than 30 degrees C. Not even after hours of crunching SETI. Idle temps are 21 deg.
I guess since both my mobo and the P3V4X are Apollo Pro 133A based mobo's, the method of retreiving temps is the same ?
