     acpi_aiboost — ASUS AI Booster hardware monitor


     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



     The acpi_aiboost driver provides support for monitoring the hardware sensors 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 motherboard 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


     acpi(4), sysctl.conf(5) sysctl(8)


     The acpi_aiboost driver first appeared in FreeBSD 7.0.


     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.


     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
     automatic/manual fan mode).
