I had some really annoying problems with my computer recently, so I was searching for informative and light tools to monitor my hardware’s performance to check if there were any discrepancy to normal values of temperature and so on. However, I could not find anything that meed my criteria.
At first I was using default motherboard’s monitoring tool that came with the drivers. As you can imagine this MSI Dual Core Center was not very informative or useful. Then I decided to try some programs for special monitoring, for example, HDD Sentinel (free and commercial versions) for my hard disks and so on.
HDD Sentinel was one of the biggest discovery, however its use is limited to only HDD and nothing more. By the way this software is licensed and costs from 23 USD dollars for more capabilities.
And at last I found a very simple, easy to use and without need to install Open Hardware Monitor application. At the moment of writing this application is developed at fast pace which is good news for the users to get the most of it.
In addition, you can launch this on both Windows and Linux systems.
You can download this app from it’s official site at OpenHardwareMonitor.com
