"Displays temps/load/speed of GPU, CPU, HD, & Bus speed."

August 24, 2012  |  By mkzynski

 |  Version: Open Hardware Monitor 0.4.0 Beta

Pros

- Easy to read/sort through explorer like window with pre-named hardware.
- Displays min/max/current temperatures/speeds of individual cores of the processor and graphics card processor.
- Displays min/max/current temperature of the hard drive.
- Displays bus min/max/current speed.
- Can also display graph over time of different statistics as well.
- Has completely customizable space saving gadget that you can enable instead of the window that you can add or remove temps/speeds/etc, make it smaller, drag and drop gadget size and position.
- Seems to be extremely accurate/instantaneous readings.

Cons

None that I have come up with over the last year I've had the program.

Summary

Simply the best free program for keeping tabs on temps, speeds, etc. You will not regret having this program on laptops or PC's. Great way to monitor your temps. I love the gadget option that just has a nice little window with temps I selected. I always keep it in the corner of the desktop.

"Handy display of Parameters"

July 31, 2012  |  By swanjame

 |  Version: Open Hardware Monitor 0.4.0 Beta

Pros

Easy to download and install. Runs off of flash drive.

Cons

No indication of fan presence or fan speed on my laptop.

Summary

Downloads, installs, and runs easily but the lack of fan information on my laptop limits its usefulness for troubleshooting.

"The only one that showed temps, without Admin rights..."

April 21, 2012  |  By scottls59901

 |  Version: Open Hardware Monitor 0.4.0 Beta

Pros

No permanent installation, and w/wo Admin showed the same info on my system (everyone's system is different...).

I've tried "several" different freebies, and None showed CPU/HD temps (blank).

Cons

Could NOT find " Open Hardware Monitor " on a cnet Search (after opened), but " Open Hardware Monitor cnet " shows on a Google search?

Cnet Please fix, so others can more easily find it!

Summary

Win 7 (32), i5-2500, Intel DH67BL MBO, WD Raptor Sata6 10K rpm HD (WOW!- faster than my old C300 SDD, using free Defraggler full defrag/replace... (must also Disable Win auto-defrag schedule!)).

This app shows "most everything", and extra info would be Very useful to Gamers/OC'rs (cannot OC i5-2500, but it's has
Turbo-Boost 3.67ghz (like it Much better than old i7-2600, and like a video card better than on-board video!).

I Was looking for what made the "Loud" whining noise coming from my Antec 300 ATX desktop case, and thought it may be temps (Not?)?
Turned out that I Was defragging on 1st cold startup.

Not the first time I've had problems with installations..., on a cold startup.
Also I find system/net... is Much faster, if I do a no-activity reboot 15min after cold startup.

"Great Monitoring program when run with Admin rights"

March 24, 2012  |  By gqmracerx7

 |  Version: Open Hardware Monitor 0.4.0 Beta

Pros

Gives CPU voltages, all core temp/speed/load, fan speeds, GPU temp/speed/load/fan, and HDD temps. Very low overhead to run program. Can hide items I don't want displayed. Rename labels for what I want them or if they have generic labels.

Cons

I haven't found one yet.

Summary

Run it with Administrator rights so you see all the voltages/temps/etc. From the other reviews I saw I think they were missing that step. Worked great for my OC'd i5-2500K and GTX 460.
