Asus A8V Deluxe

OK, a quick followup - comparing with the readings from the BIOS I see 
that fan1 is the case fan, fan3 is the power supply fan. I have an Antec 
Sonata case with the 120mm Antec fan in the rear and a Vantec 120mm 
Stealth fan mounted up front. Both of them are being controlled by the 
power supply. I think the CPU temp readings are a little low compared to 
what the BIOS reports too, but it's hard to verify.

I also started powernowd, and when the CPU goes into low power mode not 
only does the clock frequency drop from 1.8GHz to 1.0GHz, but VCore also 
drops from 1.75V to 1.41V, which triggers an alarm. I suppose I can just 
set a lower minimum for VCore, but I wonder if that might mask a fault 
somewhere down the road?
