    Can anyone recommend a utility to monitor temperatures in a Laptop. Free isn't a requirement. If it does disk monitoring it would need to be able to handle Raid 0.

    Thanks, Pete

    Hi Pete

    Thought I was going to help but not sure now :doubt:

    I've got Everest from Lavalys on my laptop that one kind member mentioned in a post but looking at the Lavalys webiste, I can't see it. It has a number of functions including a sensor for CPU and Hard Drive temperatures.

    I'll see if I can find the post/link

    There aren't many apps that do this, but your motherboard manufacturer may have one. What brand is your motherboard?

    Hi

    Just an addendum to the original post - any advice on the safe parameters for laptop CPU and hard drive temperatures?

    Hi Guys,

    Wow! I looked and my version of Everest was 1.51. So I upgraded to the older version 2.20.405.

    I only see two temps. for my Desktop:

    GPU = 62 c or 144 f is this too hot? & What does GPU stand for?
    HDD = 33 c or 91 f

    Also any ranges as to temps would be helpful

    Thanks & Take Care

    Hi Guys,

    Just checked Everest again, I guess the 1's & 0's were messing with me, so nevermind my previous post. But desktop guidelines would be nice.

    Thanks & Take Care

    ya, these seem to be most famous but be careful to play with hardware control settings if ever u do. If u are not expert, u can damage ur system easily.

    GPU stands for Graphics Processing Unit and its your video card chip.

    they can usually handle more heat than your cpu, so i wouldnt worry too much about 62 degrees.

    Does Everest require installation, or does it run from a stanalone .exe?

    NX Sensor, Motherboard Monitor( recently upgraded ), are excellent small monitoring utilities which are also free and do HDD temp monitoring as well.

    Everest requires installation but doesn't seem to have anything running, until you invoke it. I actually like it. Don't know why it didn't dawn on my when I asked what in retrospect was a silly question.
