Hey,

A mates processor just melted from the fan slowly deciding not to work properly. So you know its slightly *!@: me up, as i dont like to be without my pc for more than more day at a time and i dont like throwing money down the drain. As im going to be buying a new tower this fri/sat.

So is they any program i can use in windows to tell me the temperature around the motherboard/pc? And is they a program that i can use in windows to tell me the speed of all the fans in the pc? If i want to do this will i have to connect temperature gauges and speedo's or something in and around the pc?

Cheers

Rob

All pentium 4 processors and the latest athlons have thermal sensors and will shut down if overheating occurs.Older Athlons will not do this and self destruct---Have a look at click here for what can happen.

If you are using a pentium 3 or 4 you need not worry unduly about such a failure,if use an athlon then you may well benefit from such a program.

Sadly I do not use one myself so perhaps anyone who does could recommend a good one?
