Are their any know issues with the temp sensors on this mobo? My previous mobo ABit AN8 Ultra had sensor probs like sensing 10 degrees c below the actual temp.

Not to hijack your tread, but are you thinking of getting this board? I'm seriously considering getting this as well, and would like to hear more thoughts, suggestions, and/or ideas about it. Thinking of teaming it w/ a X2 4200 or 4400.

Thanks much!

Mine's been running fine. I dont see how you would know if your sensors were off, I'll find out next week when I have my new case put together, I'll have some temp sensors put on mine for some 5.25" Drive monitors.

I love the board, it's pretty solid, I wish it had better dividers for the RAM but it's nice and has a lot of features...and IDE RAID drivers are great since I dont need SATA HDDs to get RAID 0 performance

Its a great board. I recently replaced it with the Asus A8N32 Deluxe and moved it to my second rig. Its temp sensor never gave any issues and I am very happy witht the board. I only used it with OCZ Platinum enhanced latency and then later with Corsair Twinx, both ran fine.

is the asus a8n 32x sli deluxe at stock, will it give you better performance than the asus a8n sli premium at stock. even if it is a small increase. also will future graphics cards make full use of the 32x bandwidth?

Not to sure about the temp sensors, but the board is a little picky about ram, as long as you stick to brand names you've heard before you'll be alright. Its a solid board thats easy to set up, recognized the x2 right out of the box. Pretty stable, but only had it for a week. Oh ya and the time when video cards will actually be limited by the dual X8, your a8n32 will be an old board. Just my opinion

The Dual x16 PCI-E doesn't show that much more performance, but if new drivers come out for them I'm sure they will but is it worth the extra $70 Not really, you do get a better Power Down Cooling feature, but the Dual X16's aren't what they are cracked up to be I think a 8-10% increase

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.

Still only used one mobo as well as only one type of mobo.

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
