ACPI_AIBOOST(4)	       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual	       ACPI_AIBOOST(4)

NAME
     acpi_aiboost -- ASUS AI Booster hardware monitor

SYNOPSIS
     To	compile	this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   device acpi_aiboost

     Alternatively, to load the	driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

	   acpi_aiboost_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The acpi_aiboost driver provides support for monitoring the hardware sen-
     sors in recent ASUS motherboards.	The driver uses	ACPI as	the backend to
     fetch sensor values and descriptions and provides its data	via the
     sysctl(8) interface, under	dev.acpi_aiboost.0 namespace.  Descriptions
     for these values are available with sysctl	-d.

     The acpi_aiboost driver typically has 7 sensors, depending	on the mother-
     board and chipset:

	   Sensor    Units    Typical Use
	   CPU	     uK	      CPU Temperature
	   MB	     uK	      MB Temperature
	   VCC	     uV	DC    Core Voltage
	   +3.3V     uV	DC    +3.3 Voltage
	   +5V	     uV	DC    +5 Voltage
	   +12V	     uV	DC    +12 Voltage
	   CPU	     RPM      CPU Fan

HISTORY
     The acpi_aiboost driver first appeared in FreeBSD 7.0.

AUTHORS
     The acpi_aiboost driver was written by Takanori Watanabe.	This manual
     page was written by Juan Romero Pardines, who adapted the code for
     NetBSD, and adopted back to FreeBSD by Takanori Watanabe.

BUGS
     It's possible to modify voltages via the ACPI methods in the DSDT,	but
     for now the driver	only reports the sensors' values.  CPU Q-Fan is
     another thing that	is typically specified in the ACPI namespace, and in
     the future	we should handle this feature (to enable or disable auto-
     matic/manual fan mode).
