Hi all :)
Using lm_sensors, I can see few temperature indicator.

M/B Temp:    +39°C  (low  =   +15°C, high =   +40°C)   sensor = thermistor
CPU Temp:    +33°C  (low  =   +15°C, high =   +45°C)   sensor = thermistor
Temp3:       +53°C  (low  =   +15°C, high =   +45°C)   sensor = diode

What is that Temp3? It's the hottest.
Which one is the best to use if I want to use lm_sensor as a general
indicator of my server room temperature?
(my request to buy a Mini Goose temperature monitor is still pending).

Thank you.
