Hardware sensors monitor offers you the ultimate software cooler for your CPU. It utilizes sensor chips on smart motherboards to track system and CPU core temperatures, voltages and cooling fans. By quickly catching an overheated computer, you can prevent disasters such as system instability or damage.
The program is resource friendly, resides quietly in the system tray, and continually monitors the various parameters. By clicking its icon, you’ll view real time values for each component. Hmonitor supports all modern Windows versions: Windows 7, Vista, 2008, XP, 2003, 2000, NT4, including X64 editions.
Once it has detected an overheating state, Hmonitor can perform a number of tasks. First, it can sound an audio alarm, then shut down the system or optionally execute any selected application (i.e. sending E-mail alert messages to system administrator). It can also log information each minute to a file on your hard drive.
From the settings dialog, Hmonitor enables you to set “yellow zone” and “red zone” temperatures for the motherboard and CPU. You can also set minimum fan RPM before a warning is issued. In addition, nominal values and thresholds can be adjusted for voltage parameters.
Hmonitor Pro advantages
- [advt]CPU Throttling – restricts CPU performance and heat production, when the CPU becomes too hot.
- nVidia/Ati GPU hardware monitoring – displays hardware monitoring data for several 3d-accelerator cards.
- HDD’s S.M.A.R.T. monitoring – displays numerous attributes including the drive temperature for modern EIDE/SATA harddrives.
Commercial Hmonitor Pro feature: Remote monitoring support
Monitored values can be accessed via:
