Everest Ultimate 3.50.909 Released (New Beta) 2/21/2007

Recommended Posts

According to the mind numbing crap I read on the AMD site this afternoon,

That's an understatement.

The thermal diode is what is reported in the bios. The thermal sensor is the other reading people are now seeing. There's one white paper that specifically states that manufacturers are not to use the thermal diode readings for thermal management design. Probably because of the inaccuracy of the diode. For a more in depth discussion of the diode and sensor see the

"Core Temp" - New way to monitor temps on K8s and Core/2 CPUs thread.

Just found this interesting little tidbit on page 78 of this link...

http://www.amd.com/us-en/assets/content_ty..._docs/31411.pdf

 

TcaseMAX is a physical temperature specification in degrees Celsius that can be measured at the center of the lid with a thermocouple. The number is programmed into the processor and simply reported as a value if you query it.

 

Well, what the hell good does that do anyone unless they're monitoring the temps with exactly the same setup?

 

I still haven't found a pin-out for anything other than THERMDA and THERMDC which are the anode and cathode for the on die temp diode.

 

Am I missing something? Where are the temps for the two cores coming from?

Software costs can be hard to justify. Everest was really easy to justify for me.

I figure it's been costing me about $2.50 a month over the last year (couple of 1 ltr Coke's)

Best dang program of it's type in my opinion.

At least you had a chance to try it. :)

I'd probably buy it if it cost 50% more. A 10 hour game cost more then that.

Probably the biggest news in this update is the Core 2 processor support and the hardware monitoring by 3rd party programs. A person can now build a graphical interface similar to and displaying the same info as MBM for most motherboards not supported by MBM.
