Making real use of USDM 3's P80P temperature readout - a mod....

As only the EP-4PDA2 series mainboards offer instant connectivity to the Easybay to get the functionality of P80P diagnostics on the front of the chassis, myself and my assistant Craig have devised a mod that will enable you with the use of USDM 3 to have your temperature displayed on your P80P on the front of the chassis using an Easybay.

You can purchase an Easybay and carry out the modification outside of warranty, or if you are a UK customer, we will carry out the work under warranty and supply Easybay at the same time if you so wish for a nominal charge.

First we have to identify the place where the P80P sits on the back side of the PCB and identify pin 1 which is square (see 1st image).

Secondly we have to cut the P80P end connector wires from the 9 pin block and solder the wires to the back of the PCB in accordance with the colour chart (see 2nd image)

We will then have the final modified result (3rd image) which then in operation appears as per the 4th image.

This modification will work with all EPoX mainboards that have a single piece twin 7 segment display (won't work with older boards where two seperate 7 segment displays are incorporated onto the PCB).

I guess this mod will invalidate the warranty? 2 questions, 1st about my 9nda3+ will this work on this board? and secondly the P80P display used to stay at FF once booted into windows it shows FF booting into windows now it changes between mid 40's to 50 once in?? Any ideas about this?

If you are using USDM 3, by default it will show your CPU temperature, hence the "goodness" of this mod.

If you make the mod, you void the warranty, if we make it, it doesn't. This would be excellent for 9NDA3+ as it would make use of the Easybay completely.

Ah maybe I am using v 3 and then I guess that would explain the fluctuating temps if thats whats been shown

You can get paint specifically for ABS for "blacking"

The chipset for the card reader can be seen at http://www.alcormicro.com/product_au9360%20version.htm

As it supports MSDuo I think it may be okay.

Any word on USDM reporting a lower vcore reading (-0.02v) than other monitoring software? link 9NDA3 and USDM voltage reading

Nice work on that mod, btw

Drop me a mail - I'm working out what my BOM costs and carriage are at present - just awaiting some responses - but I think I'll be able to get this out to folks for a modest sum.
