I tried it myself yesterday on an old Pentium system with two temp
sensors to determine which was the CPU's and which was the M/B's. It
worked like a charm. While both temps were around 24°C before runing
burnP5, they went to 35°C and 28°C after a few minutes, so it was
obvious that the 35 was for the CPU. Thanks Mark :)

Well, it makes no doubt that temp3 is for the CPU. BTW, did you compared
these values with the BIOS' ones?
If the value is exact, 63.5°C is rather high and you should probably do

If you get such information, please share it with us :)
