Have you tried the Product specifications?

Beginning on page 33 (43 of the pdf)

It has 3 different Server Management busses. the temperature part is
handled within a Baseboard Management Controller. This BMC is implemented
using a DS82CL10.
Because it is a Server Board it offers a lot of managing features and
other nice things like serial console at bootup and system monitoring
features... but all unsupported withn FreeBSDs software ;)

Hm - I'd wonder if this would be the case. I mean I'm using older
hardware (Tyan Tsunami S1830S, PII300, DAC960P, RAID-1 2*IBM DFHS S2W)
without any problems as router ;)
