It's not only the world that's getting warmer - PCs, by virtue of the fact that they are becoming increasingly more powerful, are literally warming up too. That's where HWMonitor can help.

Most good PCs and laptops have a fan which automatically controls overheating and regulates temperature but this is not always 100% reliable, especially when you've got lots of external devices connected. The good thing about HWMonitor is that it gives you an instant overview of your PC's vital power and heat stats while at the same time, remaining very light and not adding to the problem. In fact, it doesn't require any installation at all and can be run simply from the .EXE file. HWMonitor does not copy any files into the directory or edit the registry in any way. HWMonitor probably shows you far more stats that it needs to in reality - I mean, who really needs to know the temperature of their graphics card? It would have been useful if HWMonitor had included some kind of basic and advanced view to prevent you getting overwhelmed with data but at least the info is there if you really need it.

If you're worried that you're fan is not doing it's job properly or your PC is getting disconcertingly hot, then HWMonitor is the ultimate monitoring tool.

Changes

  • Batteries monitoring : voltage, capacity, wear and charge level.
  • Support for Asus ROG (Republic of Gamers) mainboards series.
  • New sensor chips : Fintek F71808E & F71869, Nuvoton W83795G.

HWMonitor is a hardware monitoring program that reads PC systems main health sensors : voltages, temperatures, fans speed.

The program handles the most common sensor chips, like ITE® IT87 series, most Winbond® ICs, and others. In addition, it can read modern CPUs on-die core thermal sensors, as well has hard drives temperature via S.M.A.R.T, and video card GPU temperature.
