Re: Best program to monitor temps

I installed Everest Free and it seems "OK". Makes a text report that can easily cut & paste. But didn't see any "continuous monitoring" function. And while it would be easier to instruct a User on how to use Everest, it would still be a difficult thing to do and for the new User to follow.

I've tried SpeedFan, and remember it was fairly basic, but the GUI was VERY non-intuitive and required the User to figure out which sensor gave which reading, if I remember correctly.

RivaTuner 2.06. I use it to monitor my temps and it has fan controls, although I have never used them.

I use Everest whenever I want to check my temps now and then. Of course, that program is more all purpose than specifically temp monitoring and sensors.

Re: Best program to monitor temps

SpeedFan is a program that monitors voltages, fan speeds and temperatures in computers with hardware monitor chips. SpeedFan can even access S.M.A.R.T. info and show hard disk temperatures. SpeedFan supports SCSI disks too. SpeedFan can even change the FSB on some hardware (but this should be considered a bonus feature). SpeedFan can access digital temperature sensors and can change fan speeds accordingly, thus reducing noise. SpeedFan can find almost any hardware monitor chip connected to the 2-wire SMBus (System Management Bus), a subset of the I2C protocol and works fine with Windows 9x, ME, NT, 2000, 2003, XP and Windows Vista. It works with Windows 64 bit too.
