8K5A3+ USB power


I've just installed my new 8K5A3+ (replacing my 8KTA3+ Pro) and jolly nice it is too, however, a couple of questions...

I have a USB keyboard with a couple of USB ports in it. Into one of these ports I plug a Kensington USB light. With my old mobo this used to come on when I started up the PC and go off when I shut down, now it stays on all the time - is there a way of stopping this?

Secondly, the POST diagnostic LED - using MBM with my 8KTA3+ I could use it to display the temperature, this no longer works, it just displays 'FF' - not a problem, but if anyone knows why it no longer works I'd be interested.

you cant display temperature on port 80 as it dosent work with the on die temperature measure, im not sure why but thats perfectly normall.

As for the USB power thats because the 8k5a3+ keeps power to USB devices for the use of USB keyboard/mouse power on.
There is no way to stop this appart from turing off the mains.
No longer Epox Tech.

Best of luck in the future all my friends.
