I'm thinking this needs a little attention

What exactly is "MCP" where is it on an ASUS M3N78-VM? Its a little chilly in my room right now and considering the rest of my system temps, it just looks a bit off.

I can't say I know for sure what it is but I would say it's your north bridge temperature.

Also those reading's might be somewhat wrong, I suggest you try HWmonitor, I've been informed that this also can give incorrect reading's but it's nice to test a different program just to check.

One last thing you could actually take the side of your case off and put your hand/fingers near the north bridge, if it's giving off some serious heat like Everest say's you will feel it, and if not then it is for sure incorrect reading's.

HWMonitor Here.


After reading a quick post from that link I realised it seem's I was wrong, It's the south bridge.
