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

    April 21, 2012  |   By scottls59901


    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).


    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!


    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.
