Asus P8Z68-Deluxe Motherboard, North Bridge Temperature

Recommended Posts

I have just change my motherboard from a Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R, which showed the NB temperature. It does not show in AIDA64 for the Asus MB. Does the Asus MB have a NB sensor? I am using the latest Beta 1728

AFAIK Asus P8Z68 series motherboards are not capable of measuring their north bridge or south bridge temperature. In fact, Z68 chipset has no north bridge at all, but only a single south bridge chip (PCH).

Thanks Fiery. Why I asked is that both NB and SB are shown in the Chipset description, as shown below.

North Bridge: Intel Sandy Bridge-DT IMC

South Bridge: Intel Cougar Point Z68

That NB is the IMC (Integrated Memory Controller) component of your CPU. Hence its temperature is listed as CPU temperature on the Sensor page ;)

Would that be the CPU or the CPU Package.

"CPU" is the temperature measured by the sensor chip, while "CPU Package" is measured by the CPU itself using its on-die temperature diode. "CPU Package" should be the more accurate reading. "CPU IA Cores" and "CPU GT Cores" are also measured by the CPU itself, and show the temperature of the processing cores and the integrated GPU respectively.
