View Full Version : Digital Doc defies physics
09-06-2001, 03:49 AM
Ok, I have a Digital Doc 5. It has been reporting correct tempratures for over a month now. Today i moved the temprature probes from the base of the heatsink to right next to the core (so the tip touches the core). And now the Digital Doc reports that that all the tempratures are what they used to be but -40 degrees. (so say my processor was 50 degreed celcius, it now reports it 10.) Are Digital Docs known to do this. Has anyone ever seen this happen before?

Make sure that the tip of the probe did not (somehow) get smashed by the heatsink. A damaged probe will report false values.

Yeah, either that or the battery is low.

heh, digital doc runs off of the power suply :).
oh, i switched the ports of the probes and now they work just fine. strange.

:) You are correct. 'Tis I that uses the homemade, battery powered monitor - temps only. But, it works nonetheless. :cool:

With some soldering magic, you can hook those CompuNurses up to AA batteries or even a power supply (5V line of course, with proper resistors) so that you don't have to worry about changing those watch batteries every few months.
