On my computer I have everest home edition. Under sensors there are various ones. Motherboard, cpu, hard drive and aux.

Just out of question what is the aux temperature. what is aux?
My aux temperature reads about 50C but sometimes it rises to 110C.

Does this mean the sensor is dodgy or is this normal thx.

Also if I want to buy more fans for my computer where do I plug them into and is it easy to do.

This is taken directly from the Everest Homepage FAQ Section:

Q#18: What does the "Aux" temperature shown on the Computer / Sensor page mean?
A#18: There is no standard for sensor registers layout, so the "Aux" temperature could show the temperature of the CPU or the motherboard, or might be a non-connected wire of the sensor chip, and so it could show a bogus value.

In otherwords just ignore it. :tazz:
