AS99127F CPU temp (Examined/Solved - lm_sensors 2.4.5 Linux 2.4.13)
|Reported by:||contact||Owned by:||somebody|
I have an ASUS A7V133A motherboard.
I have been playing with the CPU temp formula, as I found it was too low
when I started. My CPU idles at about 54 degrees according to the bios,
and gets to about 61 degrees after high load and then rebooting to the bios.
I compared these bios readings to the value in temp2 in /proc, and found
that just multipling the proc value by two I end up with very close to
the correct value!
I'm wondering if anyone else has similar results. The formula in sensors.conf
gave me values that were about 10 degrees or so too low, and doesn't go
up on the right slope for me either.
I have tried this formula from cold, going to bios to linux to bios as
it boots up. This isn't all that accurate of course, as the temp can jump
5 degrees or so between bios and linux, but the linux reading was always
between the bios readings before and after booting, so my formula seems
to work over a reasonable range.
Also, once an audible alarm has been set off, how do you turn it off?
If say a voltage reading goes too high, and I change the tolerance in
sensors.conf, then run sensors -s, the alarm still sounds, even though
it is now in range. The same thing happens when I was fiddling with the
temp2 formula, and I would set temp too high, the alarm would sound even after
fixing the formula and running sensors -s to make it happy, I'd still have to
ps, sorry if this formats funny, I'm sending it from lynx, so I hope it looks OK
:) --- thanks for the info about the temperature.
For the alarm sounding, don't really know.
You can look at the 'alarms' entry in /proc to see all the
alarm bits, and 'beeps' for the beep bits, but it
isn't clear what signal the speaker is hooked up to
on your board, and of course we don't have the 99127 datasheet.
