HWMonitor shows accurate readings about PC voltage, temperature, power, clock speed, hard disk temperature, and GPU temp. You can use this tool as a CPU temperature monitor to check CPU temp. This PC heat monitor shows maximum-minimum and normal CPU temp and GPU temp.

HWMonitor 1.41 is the latest version that is available in the setup and zip folder. You can also download HWMonitor pro version which is a paid version. It's a lightweight PC hardware monitor that supports Windows, Mac, Linux, Ubuntu, and android.

Easy to install and clear cut interface

This PC temp monitor takes very little space in your system resource, this is why you can instantly download HWMonitor on your computer. Just run the.exe file, complete the installation process. Or you can download HWMonitor portable version which is available in.zip folder. This folder contains both 32-bit and 64-bit files, you can run this PC temp monitor according to your machine requirement. During installation process, it doesn't ask you to install extra tools in your PC.

The interface of this temp monitor is very simple. This tool shows all the information in one go. You don't need to open different tabs to reveal the reading of any components. The layout design is simple. It doesn't confuse users, every component is clearly highlighted. All sensors are placed at one side and their min and max readings are placed on the other side.

Monitor system information

When you run this tool you can instantly see CPU temperature, Power consumption, Voltage, & Utilization, Main-board Voltages, Temperatures, Fans speed, GPU Voltage, Temperature, Utilization, HDD temperature, Read CPU’s on-die core thermal sensors, Handel’s ITE IT87 series, most Win-bond ICs, and others.

This hardware monitor can keep an eye on each and every activity on your PC. HWMonitor gathers data via sensor chips placed on every motherboard. In addition, it can read modern CPUs on-die core thermal sensors, as well as hard drives temperature via S.M.A.R.T, and video card GPU temperature.

Monitor PC fan speed

If you want to check PC fan speed then look no further. This tool can monitor CPU fan speed and GPU fan speed including its RPM and PWM. You can see the live fluctuation of fans RPM instantly. However, this tool is not a PC fan controller software. You can only check readings but you cannot manually control your PC fan speed. If you want to download CPU fan speed controller software then you can try SpeedFan utility.

Doesn't have an alert feature

The downfall of using this PC temperature monitoring tool is, it does not detect readings that are outside the norm. This program is not designed in a way that automatically alert you if anything goes wrong on your PC. You just have to keep an eye on things yourself.

Another drawback is that it is not a system tray app. When you minimize this tool it doesn't add up in your tray, so you have to open this tool each time you want to check your PC temps.

Supports Core Temp & CPU Temp

AMD processors usually display Core Temperature instead of CPU Temperature. CPUID HWMonitor has the ability to display both temperatures at the same time

Its readings are more accurate because it detects CPU Temp which is an actual temp and is more accurate at low temp but less at high. Usually, BIOS shows CPU temperature which differs from other programs like core temp.

On the other hand, Core temp is an arbitrary scale measure temperature in degrees and in Celsius. Which is more accurate when the CPU gets hot.

HWMonitor Alternate

This is not the only PC hardware monitor available online. If you don't like this app or you want to manually control PC fan speed or you want a more comprehensive PC monitor than you can download SpeedFan, real temp, open hardware monitor, HWInfo or AIDA64 extreme. These are all reliable tool to monitor PC health. They are also free, easy to use and install. Don't run more than one tool at a time in your PC because when you do that you will not get accurate results.
