    Default How to figure out temperature sensors physical location on Motherboard?

    I'm using the Hardware temperature monitor widget you get in KDE (opensuse 13.2) and it is showing these available sensors for my system:

    acpi/Thermal_Zone/0/Temperature
    lmsensors/coretemp-isa-0000/Physical_id_0
    lmsensors/radeon-pci-0600/temp1
    lmsensors/coretemp-isa-0000/Core_0
    lmsensors/coretemp-isa-0000/Core_1
    lmsensors/coretemp-isa-0000/Core_2
    lmsensors/coretemp-isa-0000/Core_3
    lmsensors/coretemp-isa-0000/Core_4
    lmsensors/coretemp-isa-0000/Core_5
    lmsensors/coretemp-isa-0000/Core_6
    lmsensors/coretemp-isa-0000/Core_7

    The cores 0 to 7 are obviously the cores of my processor and the "radeon-pci-0600" is my graphics card. Now however it gets uncertain. Would the lmsensors/coretemp-isa-0000/Physical_id_0 be a sensor for my chipset?

    And acpi/Thermal_Zone/0/Temperature I just don't know. My only guess is that the motherboard I have has many fans and sensor and perhaps it is just showing the one sensor that's hooked up?

    My hardware is:
    * Motherboard: ASUS X99-E WS
    * CPU: Intel Core i7-5960X
    * Graphics card: AMD HD 5870

    If anyone knows how to tell where/what these less obvious sensors represent please let know.

    in System Monitor,
    then under
    -File
    --New Tab...
    ---ok (default will give a tab title 'Sheet 3')
    ---Sensor Browser
    ----Hardware Sensors
    what is listed?

    Lm_sensors has a good mailing list, they will surely be able to give you an answer.
    Oherwise, you can ask Asus.

    I had no idea about them, thanks!

    Only the CPU cores and the graphics card - the two that were obvious. I didn't know about all these sensors being listed in ont place though, awesome!
