    DH57JG temperatures


      May I ask why on DH57JB boards, PCH and VR startup monitored temperature (in BIOS) is about 59C instead that of the environment?

      I think it's not something like a defect sensor because I've noticed that on every DH57JG board I tried so far. So, I wonder is it something by design or a BIOS bug?

          Just noticed this info while reading DH57JG technical documentation:


          "The minimum thermal reporting threshold for the Intel H57 PCH is 59 °C. The PCH’s thermal sensor will display 59 °C until the temperature rises above this point."


          However this doesn't explain the extreme VR temperatures on cold startup! Not big deal though as long as everything works ok.
