OK, no problem. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't a mailing-list issue.

I don't understand. In this example, 38 < 47 and 38 < 60 so no alarm
should trigger at all - yet the high alarm seems to be set. Looks like a
bug in my driver :(

Sure, I just can't believe it. BTW, where did you got that diagram? I
know no motherboard manufacturer that give a full wiring diagram for
their motherboard (and I don't blame them, most people just wouldn't

Thanks for testing :)
