I have an Intel server motherboard that is reporting an issue with the SSB temperature sensor.

I have searched for the acronym but cannot find a definition. What does SSB stand for?

Pretty sure it's just the server board/mobo. Sounds like the temp sensor on the board itself is reporting an issue. – TheCleaner Mar 17 '14 at 16:16
Some extracts from a manual that may help you find the answer: the BMC initializes this internal clock to the value retrieved from the SSB component’s RTC and NM is supported only on platforms that have the NM FW functionality loaded and enabled on the Management Engine (ME) in the SSB – Stijn Mar 17 '14 at 16:18

If you have something similiar to Intel® Server Board S2600CO Family TPS Specs PDF here this might be the shortform of "single-sideband modulation"

See wikipedia for details
