Best software for monitoring the temps?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I got HWmonitor, HWinfo, Ryzen Master and Radeon Software for the gpu. Unfortunately none of them do a good enough job.

 

HWmonitor doesn't remember a single setting, have to minimize unnecessary stuff every single time. It's also a mess on AMD systems.

Ryzen master doesn't keep track, just shows the temp for that moment. Seems to be reporting wrong CPU temp as well.

HWinfo is just too much of a mess to just click and go, have to minimize a fullscreen game to see what is going on.

Radeon software is great, but its only for gpu.

 

Is there a software that just tracks temps of CPU, GPU and MOBO properly and shows it on the screen with some transparency settings?

Use this with RTSS, you can choose what to show in overlay form from within HWinfo while RTSS displays it. This is just like MSI Afterburner (which also needs RTSS), but Hwinfo captures more info than Afterburner.

 

Only problem is that it doesnt tell you what is what in the on-screen (or rather, on 2D/3D window) layer, so u have to memorize what goes where.

HWiNFO is the best out there, the layout is similar to HWmonitor so I don't understand that complaint? you can have OSD ingame by using RivaTuner Statistic Server (RTSS)


Quote or Tag people so they know that you've replied, otherwise you'd just be talking to yourself.

AIDA64 is easier to understand than others and it also comes with the RTSS support plugin in case you're one of those who like to play with half the screen covered by temps and frequencies


I tend to reply with memes because I lack social skills and don't know how to express myself correctly.

Aida64 is excellent, it does report to a higher degree of "accuracy" than HWiNFO, the reason I am telling that is because I do in fact monitor a whole bunch of Windows PC's and I write the metrics to a database. But both AIDA or HWiNFO will probably do the job for you. 

 

By accuracy, I am talking about Polling rates and how often it is querying the kernel.


I've been using AIDA64 shared memory feature for over four years now, and it works extremely well, I am satisfied with them. Now if you are on Linux you'll have a lot of tools out of the box to solve it.
