Your smiley reminded me I hadnt tried a divisor higher than 4. V value 
of 8 starts giving a value for this. Solved!

Thanks for the hint. Done.

>>M/B Temp:    +80°C  (low  =   +15°C, high =   +40°C)   sensor = thermistor

Changing the sensor type starts to give negative temperatures. The it87 
& lm90  M/B temp are starting to agree. However the it87 CPU temp looks 
almost 2X the lm90 one.

>>M/B Temp:    +59°C  (low  =    +0°C, high =   +70°C)   ALARM

This is odd to me too. It is starting to approach winter here so the 
ambient temperature is not so high. I must compare the BIOS temps.

They do.

Thanks for your help Jean!
