EC1 & EC2 thermal sensors?

Just down loaded 6.00.5146 BETA and noticed these temperature sensors.

What are they for?

Those are the thermal readings that the BIOS Setup (UEFI Setup) labels as EC_TEMP1 and EC_TEMP2.  Previously we've put those readings among generic thermal readings (e.g. Temperature #1), but now they got their dedicated temperature slot in the AIDA64 hardware monitoring module.

OK, thanks.

What component are they monitoring the temperature of?

Those are headers on the motherboard where you connect thermistor cables.

OK, thanks for the info.

So, I would use those for an external temperature sensor, for example?

Looking around, I see both 10K and 100K thermistors. I am guessing it matters which I would use?

Yes, but the motherboard should have them included in the box.

eVGA Z390 Dark motherboard.

No thermistor cables, and no mention of thermistor headers in the manual, only voltage headers (Probe It).

AIDA64 would not normally report non-existent sensors, would it?

EC1 and EC2 thermal readings are exclusive to Gigabyte motherboards.
