Hi Robin,
I will take the responsibility to work with Intel to get a new SDR

| I agree with AB that if these sensor values are actually "ok" then
| Intel ought to change the nominal min/max values to reflect this.
| When we first set up our host monitoring software on thunder, I
| noticed a large number of sensor values out of range and tried to get
| Bryan Rice from Intel to investigate but I never succeed in getting
| him onto our system.
| AB, would you please go through CDC's channels with Intel to open a
| problem report on this and get a determination from Intel as to
| whether these sensor readings are really ok or if they indicate a real
| hardware problem?  If the former, then I wold like them to change
| their nominal limits.  If the latter, then we will want CDC or Intel
| to assist us with identifying and replacing the affected hardware
| components, since this affects nearly half of thunder.
