D800's GPU temperature loading factor

To switch back to i8kfangui, remove the i8kfangui set of keys from the registry and the defautls will be applied when you restart i8kfangui.
GPU temps where modified for the 9300/xps2 geforce cards, it add's +4c modifiers to the sensor reading. In that reguards the only difference should be +4c temp on older laptops. (later i'll add in a check for the system or user option for this value in i9kfangui)
The temps should not be increaseing from +5-10c or +10-20c .. do you have any more details that you could provide for this?
My "Temperature Calibration" has been very un-exact to say the least.
I had noticed that with FANgui8, that the GPU Temp reports seemed high.
This unit is on 24/7 but I would at times put it in standby overnight and then notice that on resume (after eight hours, or so) the GPU would read aproximately 5-10C higher than CPU, DIMM or Hard Drive.
Right after the install of your new FANgui9, I saw that GPU was reading consistantly 5C or so higher than before. I cleaned the cooling system and it made no difference.
So Wednesday night I put it in stand-by at 11PM and took a screen shot of temperatures as soon as I resumed it at 7AM on Thursday. The GPU now reported 29 to 36f (16-20C) higher than the other four sensors.
This was done while mounted to a Dell Notebook Stand and connected to a D-Port. The room temperature was 80f. CPU reported 80f and DIMM, NB and HD reported 87f, while GPU reported 116f.
It would seem that the "+4C" that you have added along with the former inaccurately recorded GPU +factor would account for what I noticed.
This D800 is equipped with a NVIDA GeForce Go5650 and I don't know if it reports temprature or if I could believe it anyway.
With FANgui in "Observer" mode, the BIOS has the fans both off until the CPU hits 63C at which it turns both fans on high and then back to slow at 44C and then off at 39C.
FANgui's control was a big improvement and your addition of allowing GPU to control its own fan has been a very positive enhancement.
My question on how to enable 'version 8' was for the purpose of confirming temperature reading differences, but you have answered that question
