Antec P160 temperature senzor problem

Post by bonko » Thu Mar 18, 2004 6:10 am


Is anybody here who had problems with Antec P160 temperature sensor? After just one week since I bought this case, suddenly one of the two case sensors started to show 00 continuously.
I hope I find a way to resolve this problem without going with the case to the local retailer because I just installed all the components.

hi bonko,

I am using Antec P160 case. The temperature sensor of my case shows the exact temp. I use CPUIdle software and compare with my case temp and it's ok.

Maybe you connected the wrong cables. Better check the manual again or ask the local retailers about your problem. I am sure they would be glad to exchange for a new one.

I had a P160 and had no trouble with my temp sensors. You should arefully check the entire sensor cable and make sure it didn't get pinched or broken somewhere. If it did, maybe you can fix it. I don't know how easy it would be to just replace the cable itself. IIRC, it's soldered directly to the PCB.
