thanx for your reply.
but that software has also not worked.
it is only showing the HDD temp.
No CPU temp
No Chasis FAN RPM

i have not tried it on other windows.

i don't think it can be a windows 7 issue, since all the older programs that i had are running fine. but only hardware monitoring programs don't show CPU temperatures.
Any way the program you mentioned seemed to be a very nice tool.
thanx for sharing that good tool, though it didn't showed my CPU temp and FAN related informations.

It is more likely that the M'Board doesn't comply with 7 Or Vista. I've seen quite a few bits of Hardware that just don't work well with either of those OS's.

My PC camed with pre loaded Windows 7 and i haven't tried other OSes for testing the temp control. i guess i have to install Xp for these and test the temp control again.

You may do better

by Jacky Howe In reply to Try SIW

to check out the BIOS temp readings every now and then. I've used a few different programs and they haven't even been close. Tested them on a couple of Systems as well.
