Who's doing it wrong, M7F, HWMonitor or me?

I am having a problem with sensors in cpuid hwmonitor.

When I first built this system around 3 weeks ago, I did all the usual post build stability tests, using among other tools, hwmonitor.

At that time and for aorund 2.5 weeks through all tweaks, hwmonitor showed a lot (I mean a hell of a lot) of voltages in the top section labelled (ASUSTeK COmputer INC). So many that I had to scroll down to see my GTX temps.

Then all of a sudden I got a BSOD and for ever after that moment no matter what I do, even running stock, the top section of hwmonitor only shows 6 voltages in that top section (+5V, +3.3V, +12V, VIN3, VIN4, VCORE). Also it shows one of my SSD temps and then it does not and then it does and then it does not ... So where have the other sensors gone, is my mobo damaged?

Are you using any other monitoring programs? at the same time, like AI Suite?

Nope everything else is either uninstalled now or turned off.

Given that I never took any real notice of the missing voltages when they were there, I'm not sure I would recognize if they appear in a different program. The visual effect of the missing unknown voltages is very noticeable in hwmonitor.

Which other program(s) would you suggest trying?

It would help if someone with a similar spec could post a screenshot of the hwmonitor voltages so I can compare them 😉

I've gone though my registry to make sure i have nothing leftover from XTU, AI3, etc but the voltages are still missing and then they are not and then they are and then they are not, etc, etc.

I am beginning to think my mobo is faulty 😞

hwmonitor dont show CPU FAN Speed for me 😞 everyone have this bug?
In bios its showing.

I have flashed my BIOS to 0603, which has solved a more serious issue for me (cooling).

Since the flash I always see the missing voltages but as I saw them randomly before, I cannot say the update has fixed this issue yet. I'll keep an eye on them and try to remember to update this thread if the flash has solved this problem too.

Missing fan speeds was another problem I had in HWMonitor along with the missing voltages but since the BIOS update, they seem to be there all the time now.

It seems a little extreme to suggest updating your BIOS just to get the fan speeds though. I only flashed mine because I had a much more serious coolling issue and found the update solved my missing sensors problems. I am not sure I would have updated the BIOS just for the sensors though.

Unfortunately the BIOS update has not solved the missing voltages/sensors.

The randomness is starting to make me wonder if I have undervolted something that effects the discovery of sensors, etc.
