Hello guys and gals:

What do I need to be able to monitor the CPU temperature (in the system tray?)?

It does not seem as if I have installed any firmware, but I am not sure (sorry for being so ignorant).

Happy New Year!

Hans L

Asus Prope will provide a tray icon you can click to view the CPU and 'motherboard' temperature.  Speedfan, a free utility, may actually show the temperature in the tray...

Core Temp is an excellent utility for this. Download from here http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/

I assume you mean "asus ProBe", Ulrich.  I'll download it and install and see how it works.

DooGee, I will look at Core Temp as well (I have looked at the website, and it looks simple, thus good for me :-).

Regards,

The list of downloads makes me absoultely nuts.  All products run in one long list, no break between products, only a version number on row 1, not the product name, and the download is glacial.

Nevertheless, Ulrich, what version below should I use?


ASUS PC ProbeII V1.04.19

ASUS PC ProbeII V1.04.19b

ASUS PC Probe II V1.04.05

Probably 1.04.19 will work OK.  But there should be a perfectly fine version on your support CD.  The only problem with that is it may not be compatible woh the operating system you are using.

Core Temp is a great app and supports most CPUs.  It just sits quietly in your tray and reports the CPU temp using very little system resources.
It actually does what it says and reads the temp of your individual CPU cores rather than the overall temp.
In the past it's been highly recommended by Hiker who is a great contributor to this forum and anything that he recommends is well worth looking at.

I have settled for HWMonitor to monitor temps, and while it is not in the taskbar, it opens very fast.

Now, my next quest is to find out what the "warn temperaturs", "shut-down temperatures" and "
mas. temperaturs" are for the CPU, the graphics cards and the HD.  And, what kind of warnings there are (visual, audible).

Sorry that I did not respond earlier, but I still can't find any e-mail notification.  I have asked this so many times:  how do you guys keep tab of your posts and when someone have responded?

Well, one good thing is that this forum, and the ASUS website, is much faster than before (it was like wading in molasses).

Regards,

Hans L

You should be able to keep track by clicking on 'My Posts' to the left of the screen...
