After several weeks of delays, evga finally replied to my inquiry about the MX1617 sensor.
"Z390 Dark and MX1617 sensor
Sorry for the long delay on this inquiry. Our engineers finally got back to us and have confirmed that the z390 Dark does not use any Maxim parts...
I am not sure I fully understand.
Is the Maxim MX1617 sensor present on the motherboard, and it is giving erroneous readings?
Or, is some other sensor causing HWiNFO to see a 'ghost' sensor?
Or, is there another explanation?
I am really trying to comprehend this.
OK, got the new version, 6.30.
The two sensors in question no longer say Motherboard and CPU.
However, I was hoping they would be identified as to exactly what component temperatures were being monitored.
Specifically the Maxim MX1617 (green) always appears to shows minimum of 47°.
Two other sensors, DTS (red), and Enhanced (blue) seem to be more in agreement and go up and down based on ambient temp. Also, max temp on Maxim sensor is lower than the other two.
Is it possible the Maxim sensor is...
I have a Corsair Commander Pro, which HWiNFO does display temperatures and voltages from.
However, I cannot get HWiNFO to display fans.
AIDA64 displays the fans connected to the Commander Pro, as well as the temperatures.
I have tried several fans, and several versions of HWiNFO.
