Which sensor does what?

I have just installed motherboard monitor and all seems fine except I can't tell which sensor is showing what.

MBM found 3 sensors on my EP-8KTA3+Pro Epox Mobo:


These are giving the following temps: 20c 30c 18c

I am assuming that no2 @30c is the CPU but what are the other ones??

Different manufacturers set these up in different ways, but they seem to follow roughly this pattern:

Sensor 1: (i) Case ambient or (ii) Northbridge
Sensor 2: CPU
Sensor 3: (i) Option probe or (ii) Case Ambient

where the options for Sensors 1 and 3 are matched as either (i) or (ii) but not usually in combination
It is by coffee alone I set my mind in motion...
