This is the 1.2Ghz fanless variant.
I wonder if it's rigged to show the CPU temp as the System temp and the System temp as the CPU temp?
Looks like another VIA f**kup to me.
This isn't the first time they screw up with BIOS labels and such. On my PD10000, a few of the labels were mispelled. I took the time to email VIA and inform them about. What I got as a reply, was the usual "Thank you for informing us", and nothing done.
If VIA continues this half-arsed effort in their EPIA line, then I'm going elsewhere for my Mini-ITX lovin. Simple things like this should be address and rectified ASAP.
Its interesting though, looking back at the EN15000 articles, they report similar results. The System temp is higher than CPU. Maybe the CPU is now cooler than the chipset? Maybe CPU has better contact with the heatsink?
The problem is, we don't know. As these reviewers didn't bother to use a digital thermometer to see if the BIOS readings and Speedfan values were right.
