HWMonitor is one of the best software around to monitor the readings of a variety of sensors located in your motherboard and now it has been updated to Windows 8.1
HWMonitor isn’t a software meant for the average Joe, as it comes with some functions that are being used only by professional PC users. And for those that have updated to Windows 8.1 here comes the good news – the latest update for HWMonitor makes it compatible with Windows 8.1 and also brings support for a number of new CPUs, such as Intel Silvermont (Bay Trail), Intel Ivy Bridge-E/EP/EX, Intel Core i5 and Core i3-4xxx, AMD Opteron X1150 and X2150, 3200 and 3300 series, FX-9590, and FX-9370.
HWMonitor is described like this on its official page:
HWMonitor is a hardware monitoring program that reads PC systems main health sensors : voltages, temperatures, fans speed.
The program handles the most common sensor chips, like ITE® IT87 series, most Winbond® ICs, and others. In addition, it can read modern CPUs on-die core thermal sensors, as well has hard drives temperature via S.M.A.R.T, and video card GPU temperature.
I see computer repair experts using this mostly, as they are the ones that need to check so many sensors on a computer. Therefore, everybody that is a loyal users of HWMonitor should download the latest 1.24.0 version that comes with more improvements than just Windows 8.1 support, such as fan speed report on ATI GPUs and support for Asus FM2+ motherboards.
