Your favorite system temp and fan speed monitor

Looking for a very light foot print program that can monitor cpu/case temps as well as selectable fan speeds. Cpu/fan1, fan2 etc.

I use HWInfo64.

It provides voltages, fans speeds, hard drive temps, CPU temps, and temps of various other locations on the motherboard---all showing current, minimum, and maximum.

That's just in the "sensor" mode. You can also look at the standard mode and get more info about the BIOS version, CPU model and stepping, motherboard make and model, etc.

I rarely look at anything but the sensor mode.

It uses about 24 MB of memory on my PC.

I like Core Temp (use the U.S. Mirror) for monitoring my core temperatures. I have it set to display in the Notification area.

I could use the monitoring program for my MOBO to monitor fan speeds but I don't bother since all I care about are the core temperatures. The MOBO will automatically adjust the speed of the fans as needed depending on core temperature.
