Second Q, I have a Foxconn MoBo supplied with monitoring software SuperStep.
This shows CPU at 30C and System Temp at 41C.
I also use, as it can be set to display on the Taskbar, MBM5 and was under
the impression from plenty Googling, ITE8712F-1 was the CPU diode and
ITE8712F-2 the System..............but they show 43C and 33C respectively
which is the reverse (almost) of SuperStep..
should I consider that these diodes on the Foxconn board are reversed.

Yes it can. Basic physics or no. If the MB temperature sensor happens to
be located next to some extremely hot component and the general airflow
through the case is blocked from reaching that area then that sensor can
easily exceed the temperature of the CPU which, if it has a really good
HS and fan, may well be only a few degrees above the true case ambient.
