Does anyone offer a Free System Monitor, cpu temps etc. for Windows 7?  I have looked around but the only ones I see are at those nasty sites that download junk to my pc! 

 

Thanks pcpunk

Does windows 7 have built in warning if the cpu gets to hot?  I'm looking at your links and have now found some others also.

CPUMon, at Major Geeks

 

Those two look great guys, think I will download tomorrow and give them a go! getting late here.

I have been using this for a few years, it is the most inclusive software I have found does not leave anything out even give all license info.  Has -0- foot print in Resource Monitor, I open it check anything in an instance then at times check sensors and drop it down so I can check temps with one click.

 

Most all late processors throttle back when temps get to high.

Not only that, dc3, the software must be paid for to generate saved reports.  I'm uninstalling it now.

Yup you need to watch for check marks.

When you go to install a downloaded program you will have two options for the installation.  The "Suggested" method, and the Custom Installation.  The "Suggested" installation will automatically install everything, including the third party software.  The Custom installation give you the opportunity to read each part of the download.  Sometimes the third party software will already have a check to allow the installation, sometimes it doesn't.  Sometimes it will appear to be part of the software you intended to install.  You have to read through this carefully to be sure what it is.

SIW hasn't been a free download for a couple of years now.  I tried to download it recently from the author's site and found this out.

tweaking.com's hardware identify and system information are freebies.  However, I believe MS's own SysInternals include many very good very similar freebies.  While SIW will display what it finds, the inability for the SIW-freebie to save reports - removes it from my utility box.

Will it save reports as html, txt, etc.?  And, there is no EULA-legal way for me to get a copy from you, is there?

Unfortunately it is the free but full version they offered awhile back but will not save a report.
