    If there is no thermal diode temperature monitoring is impossible.

    OK

    So my next question is: Is there a thermal diode in the Intel i965/x3100 chipset?

    next question:

    why?

    Do you have a problem or do you want/need to collect (and display?) data for it's own sake?

    Some people have said that thermal zone 0/1 in HWMonitor is the chipset.

    Nothing solid about it, though.

    I don't have problems. I actually damaged the blue thermal pad above the integrated chipset/GPU when I replaced the CPU in my new laptop (Celeron T1400 to a C2D T5250). I replaced the blue pad with folded aluminium foil. Between every layer of the foil I put a thin layer of ASAKA silver based past.

    I need the monitoring software to check that the foil is cooling the chipset/GPU down :p. My CPU temps are amisingly low. With RMclock my max CPU temp is 60c.

    Why dont you just buy a thermal pad?

    Layers of foil wont cut it in the long run.

    I don't have access to a replacement pad where I am :(

    Can't understand why the foil won't do it. can you explain?

    I spread a thin layer of thermal past of an aluminium foil, and folded it once. I added another layer of past on the folded foil and folded it again. I repeated this process about 6 times. So the foil and the past are like a layer cake. To finish I added a thin layer of thermal past on the top of chipsed and the heatsink. I double checked that the chipset, foil, and heatsink are well connected.

    Doesn't the foil + ASAKA silver based past have a better thermal conduction then the blue pad?

    P.S.
    I tried with an aluminum shim (like the Dell xps1330 mod) but the gap between the chipset and the heatsink is too small... 0.2mm maybe
