Unfortunately Everest help isn't that illuminating

"18. What does the "Aux" temperature shown on the Computer / Sensor page mean?

There is no standard for sensor registers layout, so the "Aux" temperature could show the temperature of the CPU or the motherboard, or might be a non-connected wire of the sensor chip, and so it could show a bogus value. "

I looked on my Gigabyte board PC and it shows up on that one to, so it would appear to be a feature of the board/brand rather than a non connected wire. I then checked out the mobo manual and it doesn't give any hint either, so you may need to contact Gigabyte themselves to see what sensor is involved.

I'm not too keen on using third party software for checking temps on motherboards, the only 100% reliable thing is to use the BIOS. Gigabyte I think have there own diagnostic program which you could try, if I can find it I'll post back with a link to it.

Hi, I had a temperature problem, and 'dug out' a program GWUM from gigabyte (on a CD), if you still need a sensor checker, email me (yellow envelope) and I will send you a copy (approx size 1.2mb).

You must have had to really look for this thread its over 6 months old.

I had a problem with my computer freezing, although everything seemed OK when running sensor checks in BIOS, but not in windows, a search for sensors on this excellent site reminded me that I had an old Gigabyte CD from a previous motherboard, so I dug it out, and although this is an ASUS board, it works.

It shows my motherboard creeping up to 85 degrees under load before freezing. Up to Maplins to get a new Fan over weekend.

If I can help somene else in the same situation, why not ?.
