How do you monitor your computers temps

    I find that using the bios to check my systems temps is annoying. Is there software that monitors it and can be viewed while windows is running.

    Or is this typically bundled with the MB Cd ?

    Sometimes the mobo documentation has a monitoring program that comes with it. I use MotherBoardMonitor5 (MBM5). It's a free download.

    you will have to do some initial configuring but it's a great program for monitoring the system temps., fan speeds, voltages, etc.....

    Goto "Computer" in the left menu. Click on "Sensor". It shows temps for motherboard, cpu, hard drive. It also shows the speeds that your cpu fan and power supply fan are moving.

    Now that I have MBM5, how do I find out what MOBO I have?

    I believe it is ASUS, but what model?

    HP Pavilion a820n
    540J P4 w/HT

    I had the same problem which is why i tried and speedfan.

    I think you need to look on the MB itself or download Everest and it will tell you whats in your box. I am very impressed with Everest and it also has temp monitoring which was just pointed out to me. I will post the link when i find it again.
