Is there a "best" or most recommended software for monitoring temps?
This is for a windows based pc. I ask becasue in my box is an Asus mobo, hence it came with its "AI suite" with fan control/temp monitoring. I wanted a desktop "gadget" that I could just leave on to watch temps but also be small and inconspicuous. So I tried a proggy called "core temp", its a nice little desktop gadget that shows just what I want to see. Im pretty suspicious of it though. If I run it AND run the Asus app, core temp is showing temps consistently about 12C higher that what Asus is. Thats a pretty big difference! I tend to think that Asus is more accurate, but now Im just not sure what the temps are.
Are there any recommendations?
any good ones that also provide a desktop "gadget"?
Thanks for any tips
SpeedFan and Hmonitor for windows are good. Speedfan monitors voltages, fan speeds and temperatures in computers with hardware monitor circuits. While Hmonitor software can acquire a change in CPU frequency or fan speed.
