Do all motherboards have temperature monitoring?

I currenty have an old Alienware computer that I got back in January 2003. I am wanting to go ahead and trash the Alienware case, and go with a Thermaltake case with temperature monitoring and all that good stuff. I am not for sure what model my mobo is just yet... it is stuck in a hole next to my desk and I hate having to pull it out and opening it. But I will get the details of the mobo posted sometime this week (MOBO CD is for ASUS P4PE/GE / Intel 845).

I am just wondering do ALL motherboards enable you to hook up these monitors and other things to them?

Well unless you plug a cord onto your mobo from your case to read the temps of the cpu, NB, etc (I don't think mobo's have that) you can't get the temp from them. I have a case that reads the temp but its just for the heat inside the case and not the cpu or NB.

I may be total wrong :p

These digital readouts control fan speeds and such, so I am sure they plug into the motherboard some how

The ASUS P4PE has onboard temperature sensors, download the ASUS Probe utility from their site.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
