I couldn't find any installable version of PC Probe II for Win7 64-bit using Asus' normal method to find Downloads for this P5N32-E SLI motherboard.  Using Google, I did find that the Download button at this site http://www.techbeta.org/windows-vista/asus-pc-probe/  does get PC Probe II version 1.04.80 from an Asus ftp server (so it *is* legit!).

This Asus PC Probe II v1.04.80 installed OK on my Windows 7 Pro 64-bit machine. 

Note however:
1) Run Setup.exe, allow Win7 to install it in c:\Program Files (x86)\Asus\PC Probe II folder. Answer Yes/Run repeatedly to multiple prompts about allowing the unsigned programs to run;
2) Afterwards, you will get notified that program may not have installed properly -> Choose option to ReInstall With Recommeded Settings.  Then it should install successfully.
3) I recommend you create a shortcut to launch it.

To run the installed PC Probe II you MUST have Admin rights.

Cheers,
BMaytum

Hello bmaytum,

That was some good info.  I disable the "Program Compatibility Assistant" service.  It's a pain in the butt with x64 if you're installing a lot of software.  Windows 7 will continue to warn you, or block drivers from installing if they are not compatible.

Followed your link today and got PC Probe II version 1.04.88 from an Asus ftp server - note the 88 version and it installed ok but i have a question. it shows the motherboard temp at 45 degrees, no idea what it should be but hilighted in red in the Probe results, can you advise please BMaytum or others. Have currently raised the temprature default warning from 45 to 48 to get around the warning, but really not sure what the idle tempt should be. PC on several hours with just limited internet use only. CPU temp 36

@ ctx:

With limited load (doing internet browsing, etc.), your MB temperature should be in the ~ 30-40 C range even after being a few hours, unless you have high ambient (room) temps like in Afrika, Arizona (unlikely in UK least you've got your thermostat cranked way up).

On my P5N32-E SLI system, idle load temp generally in 30-35C (86-99F) with 65-75F ambient room temp.  After high load (running BOINC crunching Seti @ Home work units on both CPU cores + one GPU) for several hours, I'll see MB reach 110F (43C).  On a hot summer day here, I don't run Seti @ Home program because my GPU gets to 65C (as reported by Asus' "Smart Doctor II" vidcard monitor) and CPU gets up to 122F (50C) - those high temps are both within design limits but I love my system too much to thermal age all the good parts.

Your MB at 45C (113F) isn't dangerous, BUT I'd recommend you open the case and airblow dust off everything (e.g. case filters, all fans, and CPU + motherbaord heat sinks).  Verify your case fans are running too, to ensure they are pumping air through the case.  

If MB & CPU remain 'hot' after dust removal, consider running them at higher RPM speed.  I use Duty Cycle fan control mode in BIOS Setup to set each of my fan speeds. Since I don't mind the fan noise too much, I run CPU fan at 100%= 2650RPM, and 3 case fans @ 2000-2300 rpm. My case intake fan is a big 120mm beast (running @ 2000 rpm) + a 80mm intake fan blowing on hard drives, and for case rear exhaust I've got a 90mm fan + 120mm fan on the Power Supply.  Yes, case ventilation DOES matter!!

I had the same problem but worked around it. I had some issues though after a while with the program crashing on startup. This being VERY annoying I switched to coretemp and use the coretemp gadget to monitor temps and usage. It looks a lot cooler too. Just a suggestion.

Now running 10 degrees cooler thanks for the tip off bmaytum and only a half hearted clean performed, more when i can get into the city and buy some cans of air to do it properly although i guess it will mean removing both graphics cards to achieve it. Appreciate your input.

Great post. I went to the site and found 2 files to download I downloaded the second file labeled: ASUS PC Probe II 1.04.88 for Windows 7 and Vista/XP. The download and installation were successful, however, I have a "partially painted icon titled: PC Probe II V1.04.87, when I launch it, it acts like it is launching but I get no data to look at. Any ideas on how to remedy this?

That does not do it. The program always shows up in my task bar as if it was running but I do not get a display like I did when I had the 32 bit OS.
