I was just curious. What is the "local temp chip" temperature? I recognize the GPU temp as the one reported in Overdrive, etc. But what's this other temp? Are there 2 sensors on my 9800XT?

Thanks,
Steve

One quick question -- where is the (local temp) monitoring chip located physically on the 9800XT? Is it on the other side of the card underneath the bronze heat spreader?
