Monitor temperature sensors, fan speeds, voltages, load & clock speeds

The Open Hardware Monitor is a portable free open source application that monitors temperature sensors, fan speeds, voltages, load and clock speeds of your Windows computer.

Open Hardware Monitor

Open Hardware Monitor supports most hardware monitoring chips found on today’s main-boards like the ITE, Winbond and Fintek families.

The CPU temperature can be monitored by reading the core temperature senors of Intel and AMD processors. The sensors of ATI and Nvidia video cards as well as SMART hard drive temperature can be displayed.

The Open Hardware Monitor runs on 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft Windows 10/8/7/Vista & Windows XP operating systems.

  • GPU sensors: Nvidia, AMD (ATI)
  • Hard drives: S.M.A.R.T. temperature sensors, SSD wear level, host reads/writes
  • Fan controllers: T-Balancer bigNG, Alphacool Heatmaster.

User Interface:

* Display of sensor value, min, max and (technical) limit (columns configurable).
* Editable sensor parameters (via context menu or double click on the sensor).
* Display any sensor in the system tray (via context menu, color configurable).
* Plotting of temperatures graphs (currently limited to max 100 min).
* Window position and size is restored the next time the application is started.
* Sensor names can be edited (click sensor twice or select the sensor and press F2).
* Display can be limited to certain sensor types (voltage, clock, temperature, fan).
* Hard disk S.M.A.R.T. sensor reading can be disabled to allow unused disks to be turned off.
* Minimize to system tray.

    Is it just me, or does this look suspiciously similar to HWMonitor/HWMonitor Pro?
