Prog for CPU temps (free, please !)

Postby Phil K on Thu Feb 23, 2006 3:11 pm

Of course, it helps if the motherboard is listed, too.
My motherboard is an Asus A8NE-FM. The CPU is an AMD X2 4200.
I notice there are loads of board makers who make progs that will tell you temp etc and also make it a doddle to overclock.
I'm not that bothered about O/C-ing, but it would be nice if Asus made the effort that the likes of Gigabyte etc have no problem with doing.
I used HMonitor for the brief time it actually worked, and got 42 degrees C up to a max of 54. Which cant be too bad. The abysmal riaa-spies, (embedded in the chips) the Pentium "D"s, seem to start at 60 degrees.

Not sure if this is what you're talking about, but ASUS packages a program with all of their mobos called ASUS PC Probe (also d/l from their website).

It doesn't allow you to OC, but it will report your CPU & mobo temps, as well as fan speeds, voltages you are currently at, disk spaces (used & free), a breakdown of the hw running on your mobo, etc. It also allows you to set alarm thresholds for your fan speeds & CPU/mobo temps.

I'm sure there are other apps out there that also fit your needs (though I have no idea what they are :wink: )

Motherboard Monitor, sadly, is no longer in development. So, it doesn't recognize some newer boards.

I also use Speedfan now. Excellent program.
