    Hello,
    This is my first post here and I'm looking for some advice.I've used a command to display voltage levels associated with an old motherboard,the type of which is probably irrelevant.I've noticed that a couple of levels seem too high and have "alarm" written after them.My question is what does it mean and what should I do about it?

    The output from the command is copied below.

    Adapter: PCI adapter
    temp1: +53.0°C (high = +95.0°C, hyst = +3.0°C)
    (crit = +115.0°C, hyst = +5.0°C)
    (emerg = +130.0°C, hyst = +10.0°C)

    coretemp-isa-0000
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    Core 0: +40.0°C (high = +76.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
    Core 1: +40.0°C (high = +76.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)

    Probably nothing. Motherboard sensors are not reliable. Use multimeter if wanna be sure about voltages.

    Agreed. Motherboard sensors have never been that accurate. As Wicked said, a multimeter will be much better for readings.
