How does that mean anything.
It doesnt tell how they got the REAL value, doesnt tell what mobos were used, probably didnt use multiple mobos.

It is a FACT that a temperature measurement taken downstream from the heat source will ALWAYS be lower than the temperature of the heat source due to the thermal resistance between the heat source and the measurement position. So your heatsink measurement MUST be lower than the actual core temperature since it meets these criteria.

Not my opinion, basic thermodynamics and accepted scientific fact!

The Asus board reports the temperature to be even lower than your heatsink temperature (which we already know is low) therefore it MUST be even further away from the actual core temperature than your heatsink temperature.

Not my opinion, basic thermodynamics and math.

Due to the facts expressed in the first paragraph, the core temperature will be significantly higher than your heatsink temperature. The Abit board measures the temperatures as being in the range that thermodynamics and math say they should be based on your downstream measurements. (Which we KNOW must be lower than the actual temperature.)

So the Abit temperatures are more accurate than the Asus temperatures.

Not my opinion, basic thermodynamics and math.

So while your call to Asus to revise their measurement calculations are valid, your call to Abit to revise their measurements are in error.

This is a fact, not my opinion.

dont know if anyone mentioned it, but...

When I first got mine, it read that the temperature was 10 degrees hotter than what I expected, updated bios and it dropped the 10 degree celcius, so just try updating them

both are decent boards but IMO the asus is built much better, ive hasd asus boards from the beginning until recently (no other option) got an dfi but the asus sli premium over clocks really well, with phase i had aopti 170 doing 3.0 and on water it would do 2.8

the only problem with this board as far as ocing goes is the vcore limitation that gets in the way but there is a volt mod that you can do if you want that gives you basically unlimited voltage

as far as ram i have ran ocz which it likes really well and gskill which also gave me no problems

its a good buy for a mobo if you are considering getting it
