Default CPU Temp

I am using MBM5, and it displays three temps at the bottom, one is the case, one is the CPU Diode, and the other is the CPU. The case is steasy at 26- 30C, the CPU stays around 35-40C, but the Diode is usually running around 45-50C, and recently hit 74C. What is the normal temp for the Diode? I'm pretty sure the CPU & Case are ok, but I'm not too sure about the high Diode temp.

Diodes have a hard life, head butting electrons into the correct flow, so they can get pretty hot - I wouldn't worry unless it's running outside the manfrs spec.

I'm not aware of any diode that has a thermal monitor so I can't help a lot.

BTW Take these readings with a dash of salt and certainly never compare yours against another PC as they can be quite ....... innacurate.

i tried to use MBM5,
my mobo is a gigabyte81875 ultra,
the first two sensors were 25,25, but soon as i set my third, my computer started beeping, i checked the temp and it was 70, second time around it was 75.

it only quit beeping when i turned off the machine.

i had the same problem with PC Wizard
