Ext Sata Mini fan replacement Pics/Temps

Pictures here: http://tinyurl.com/2onlmd

Ambient temperature was about 60F or 16C.
Temps at Idle/Heavy Load/2 minutes after Heavy Load terminated. CPU A 22/25/24
CPU A Temp Diode 26/39/30
CPU CORE 1 15/37/19
Northbridge Position 1 24/25/26
Northbridge Position 2 24/25/26
Hard drive 27/26/26

I'll do another reading with a more normal ambient temperature later. Perhaps the CPU CORE 1 temp is off. I'll try some other programs that use these sensors later as well. Temperature Monitor and Hardware Monitor are both made by the same company but there are others. Any recommendations would be most welcome.

Something interesting on their website here in the FAQ: -----------------
http://www.bresink.com/osx/216202/Docs-en/faq.html "I am running the program on an x86-based computer which has not been manufactured by Apple. Only sensors for hard drives, batteries, and Intel CPU monitoring are displayed, but no other values. Can you add support for the other sensors of my mainboard?

This is only possible if the manufacturer of your system or your mainboard develops a driver for the sensors that is compatible with Mac OS X. Manufacturers can contact us for receiving more technical information."
-----------------
Now this program is for OS X. Here they are dispensing information to people running it on non-Apple hardware. That's the first time I've seen OSx86 hacker people acknowledged on a mainstream website. Or perhaps its another reason not to bother expending all that time when you can get the Mini up to 3 gbs ram, 1 TB Sata2 storage, not to mention CPU upgrading when the price is attractive. ...:)
