Any serious system builder or overclocker knows how important it is to know that your components are working within safe and sufficient voltage and temperature ranges. Knowing how fast the CPU temperature grows will help you diagnose poor adhesion of the radiator plate to the CPU heatspreader and prevent future lockups or even physical damage of the chip. Being able to see the immediate voltage output for your CPU or video card gives you an understanding of why the device cannot fully reveal its overclocking potential. Finally, seeing a zero next to your chassis fan RMP field will point you to a power connector that hasnt been properly attached to the motherboard. These are little things that may lead to serious circumstances; therefore, a decent system diagnostics tool should find its way into the toolkit of anyone concerned with the proper operation of system components.
SensorsView is an affordable multifunctional utility that monitors the temperature of your CPU, Northbridge chip, motherboard, GPU and hard disk drives, as well as corresponding voltages and fan speeds. The software supports the majority of monitoring chips used on the market. SensorsView allows you to specify alert thresholds and perform a number of actions when the threshold is exceeded: log the event, send an email message, play a sound, launch an external application or just shut down the system. A complete overview of pre-alert measurements is also available. You can also use the program to monitor the current usage of your physical memory, CPU, HDD and network connection. One of these parameters can be shown in the system tray when the program is minimized.
In a nutshell, SensorsView provides a comprehensive set of monitoring options that will satisfy anyone willing to be fully informed of the status of their hardware and prevent possible crashes and data loss. Let SensorsView be the guardian of your computer and rest assured that safety will be its number one priority!
