Any other sensor utility?

I'm thinking sensor readouts are incorrect.

This is what it shows for idle temperatures.

justin@linux:~> sensors
radeon-pci-0008
Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1: -8.0°C (crit = +120.0°C, hyst = +90.0°C)

k10temp-pci-00c3
Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1: +0.0°C (high = +70.0°C)
(crit = +70.0°C, hyst = +69.0°C)

Still not certain on the sound I was hearing, but definitely sounds like a fan bearing going bad. It only happens when the system is under load. Guessing the sensor readouts are wrong and something is getting too hot.

 

There's no readout for voltages or any other temperatures (motherboard temperature), yet those readouts are available in BIOS. Should be important to have them available while booted into OS since that's where there is a greater impact.

sensors and lm-sensors is what i use, sorry don't know of any other programs.

Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done.
Just press ENTER to continue: 

Driver `coretemp':
  * Chip `Intel digital thermal sensor' (confidence: 9)

Driver `adt7475':
  * Bus `NVIDIA i2c adapter 3 at 2:00.0'
    Busdriver `nvidia', I2C address 0x2e
    Chip `Analog Devices ADT7473' (confidence: 5)

Driver `it87':
  * ISA bus, address 0x290
    Chip `ITE IT8720F Super IO Sensors' (confidence: 9)

Do you want to overwrite /etc/sysconfig/lm_sensors? (YES/no): y
Copy prog/init/lm_sensors.init to /etc/init.d/lm_sensors
for initialization at boot time.
You should now start the lm_sensors service to load the required
kernel modules.

Unloading i2c-dev... OK
Unloading cpuid... OK

lm-sensors is what i have installed in yast, how did you get all that info up in your terminal?

justin@linux:~> lm-sensors
If 'lm-sensors' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
    cnf lm-sensors
justin@linux:~> lm_sensors
If 'lm_sensors' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
    cnf lm_sensors

only gives output if i type sensors alone

 

i know this board (MSi A58M-E33) uses a Fintek F71878AD Super I/O chip.. thought that is supposed to display in readout from lspci command.. and since when does lspci require being run as root?

not sure what board you have there, but my older Asus M4N78 Pro (sent for e-waste recycling) used that very same ITE IT8720F

also have a Gigabyte GA-8IG1000 Pro-G (socket 478) with an ITE IT8712F-A (those ITE chips seem to be really good)

and my current ASRock A770DE+ (socket AM2/AM2+/AM3) has a Winbond W83627EHG-A

lm-sensors is a service you start in yast.

 

yast, system, system services and then highlight lm-sensors and then click on the enable button near bottom left to enable it and then click ok to save.

 

run

sensors-detect

and then modprobe the drivers eg for mine

Driver `coretemp':
  * Chip `Intel digital thermal sensor' (confidence: 9)

Driver `adt7475':
  * Bus `NVIDIA i2c adapter 3 at 2:00.0'
    Busdriver `nvidia', I2C address 0x2e
    Chip `Analog Devices ADT7473' (confidence: 5)

Driver `it87':
  * ISA bus, address 0x290
    Chip `ITE IT8720F Super IO Sensors' (confidence: 9)

it found , coretemp, adt7475, it87

 

 

linux-oh2g:~ # modprobe adt7475
linux-oh2g:~ # modprobe it87
linux-oh2g:~ # modprobe coretemp

so modprobe them and then when i ran sensors it showed the info you saw.

So far I see this, is that a problem if there is no driver for my Fintek chip?

Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done.
Just press ENTER to continue: 

Driver `lm78':
  * ISA bus, address 0x290
    Chip `National Semiconductor LM78' (confidence: 6)

Driver `k10temp' (autoloaded):
  * Chip `AMD Family 15h thermal sensors' (confidence: 9)

Driver `to-be-written':
  * ISA bus, address 0x295
    Chip `Fintek F71868A Super IO Sensors' (confidence: 9)

Note: there is no driver for Fintek F71868A Super IO Sensors yet.
Check http://www.lm-sensors.org/wiki/Devices for updates.
Do you want to generate /etc/sysconfig/lm_sensors? (YES/no): y
Copy prog/init/lm_sensors.init to /etc/init.d/lm_sensors
for initialization at boot time.
You should now start the lm_sensors service to load the required
kernel modules.

Unloading i2c-dev... OK
Unloading cpuid... OK

What about the one it lists as driver to be written?

The problem with the chip Fintek F71868AD under linux

After the purchase of the motherboard on which the I / O controller and monitoring Fintek F71868AD a problem with the control of the CPU temperature and other operating parameters. The fact that there is no linux kernel driver for this chip and lm_sensors will not be able to remove the parameters.

However, the chip seems compatible with Fintek F71869A. Therefore, we try to execute the command:

modprobe f71882fg force_id=0x1007

And look at the output of sensors

It seems like everything is great!

It remains only to set up automatic downloading of the module. To do this, create a file f71882fg.conf /etc/modules-load.d this content:

f71882fg

And create a file directory /etc/modprobe.d f71882fg.conf:

options f71882fg force_id=0x1007

That's all.

 

so try

modprobe f71882fg force_id=0x1007

then see what shows up when you run sensors again.

 

apart from that i can find nothing to help with the no driver (to be written.) for the Fintek F71868A chip.

I still feel like those first 2 readouts of +9*C for Radeon and +27.1*C for k10temp are not right. Wouldn't those numbers be quite a bit higher since folding is running (on high now) and CPU use is 100%. Also considering the Radeon GPU is on the CPU die would make it run hotter. Not really sure how these APUs work exactly... it's marketed as a dual core CPU with integrated graphics. So does that mean it has 1 CPU core and 1 GPU core, or is it 2 CPU cores and 1 GPU diode/transistor? I would think if it's 2 CPU cores and 1 GPU core that would make it overall a triple core chip.

 

Also wondering if those voltage readouts are right. Have things changed so much that there is no longer 12V, 5V and 5Vsb like I'm used to seeing on so many of my older Pentium 4 rigs?

 

Now to figure out a good widget for keeping sensor display on desktop.

Not exactly...

 

Example, I have AMD A4-6300 APU. It is a dual core with integrated Radeon HD 8370D graphics. So what is that exactly? There is 2 physical CPU cores and 1 physical graphics core? Seems unbelievable since if that is true then it is severely under powered. (unless there is something wrong with my APU, mobo or PSU)

 

I would imagine that I should be seeing much higher temperature readouts, especially when folding and System Monitor shows 100% CPU load for both CPUs. At that much load there is no way it's really running at 27.1*C

 

I feel like having one of these is the only option for knowing the real running temperature of my machine:

http://en-us.fluke.com/products/thermometers/fluke-561-thermometer.html

 

Would be nice, but most people have no clue what it is or what it does much less able to afford $180 for it.

 

All in all, I'm just trying to figure out what's going on with this machine. We pay for 75M service for internet and I keep seeing dial up speeds and every few minutes it drops off to 0 B/s and sits like that for a few minutes. Trying to load up the Pit forum even takes so long that it would go faster on an old 56k dial up modem. If I stop the folding client things speed up a little at least. The one obvious fact is a huge lesson learned to not ever buy Cybertron PC products again. Got a 1 year warranty with the machine and Cybertron, Best Buy and Geek Squad all refuse to help resolve the issue.
