    Which mobo are you using? Have you checked recently? A new version came out just this week.

    Not being rude but some moboards do not come with temperature sensors, are you sure it has one? Also on mother board monitor there are a number of different sensors you can set it to the preset one is rarely the right one :happy:

    it doesnt automatically choose a temperature sensor on my board, so I had to set it myself.

    Try Aida32 Enterprise edition HERE
    for a second opinion. 43 sounds like the cpu temp. Does Speed Fan show any temp at 43? If so rename it and put that value in the tray.
