Does anyone know what TMPIN2 is that HWMonitor reports under the mainbourd readings?
I know that TMPIN1 is the mainbourd temperature. I also noticed that TMPIN2 is always exactly 10 °C under the CPU temp the
Another strange thing that I am asking myself since I have Ryzen is that the CPU temp reported by the mainbourd never drops under 40 °C
even in idle, while the processor itself reports that it idles at around 28 °C.

I dislike HWMonitor for this reason...I prefer other programs that clearly report what temp is what.
It might be the VRM temperature?
The mainboard temp is probably the PCH temperature...which will be higher than CPU idle temp usually...
In HWInfo it's the same.
This is why I prefer AIDA64. COY and CPU Diode are what HWMon calls 0 and 2, and motherboard what it calls 1, at least on my board.
That is CPU socket...at least in HWiNFO you can get there by elimination since VRM and PCH is clearly labeled etc.
