    Question LM96000 chip (DG45FC) not reporting in bios or speedfan

    Anyone else have this chip and run into this problem? This is on a DG45FC board from Intel.

    I've recently updated the bios and it still doesn't report anything when I access the information via the bios. I've also downloaded the new SpeedFan (4.37) which now supports the LM96000 chip, but it doesn't show anything other than processor core temp and HDD temp.

    Any ideas?

    I have the same problem. My DG45FC only reports core0 and core1 temp, and HDD temp. No fan speed, or voltages at all.

    According to this, there is no solution from intel either:

    The current version of SpeedFan did not seem to support this board at all. Most of the readings were blank and no amount of tweaking allowed us to initiate manual fan control. Furthermore, [COLOR=green! important][COLOR=green! important]Intel[/color][/color] does not provide any officially supported monitoring programs.
    Edit: actually, you can, according to this post on the above forum:

    Intel uses its own new specification (well, new as in it's been around for longer than the past two years and used primarily on Intel motherboards only) called Quiet System Technology, or QST. They have not released the specs for this mechanism, which depends on the embedded Management Engine, which is itself barely documented. This means that SpeedFan is unlikely to support it any time soon.
    You can, however, use Intel's own Desktop Utilities to monitor temperatures and control fan speeds.
    I downloaded the file (the one on the top), and it works well. Not as useful to integrate on a front end, of course, but at least I get the ICH temp and the fan speed, plus voltages. Useful for detecting problems there.

    I've actually downloaded the same program. However, it keeps showing an over temperature notification for the processor...but the processor temp never changes from 32C. It's the same temp when I boot up and when it runs for 10 hours solid.

    Strange....very strange.

    This board is just trouble...lol

    Fan control on DG45FC - speedfan

    Hi,
    I know this is an old thread but for those interested, the newest version of SpeedFan does support Intel's QST and will give you full fan control on your DG45FC, including turning the fan's off
    My two systems (System1: [email protected] (BSEL mod) with SpeedStep and undervolting; System 2: [email protected] with SpeedStep but regular voltage) ran the whole day with just the case fan on and average chip core temperature of 32C. Running BIOS 131.
    Not bad.
