Open Hardware Monitor Review

Felix Cheng

Keep an eye on temperatures, voltages and load times

A review of Open Hardware Monitor by Felix Cheng

Though it usually isn't something which all users have to pay attention to, the PC is powered by several components of which the operating temperature is an important value to look at. In case of failures, Open Hardware Monitor is a great tool to know many details in diagnosing issues.

Open Hardware Monitor is a system monitor tool which displays various hardware settings, temperature values and more for CPU chips, memory modules and graphics processors. It also displays valuable information about hard drives by accessing S.M.A.R.T parameters.

The information collected by Open Hardware Monitor is displayed rather neatly in a tree which includes helpful icons, making it easy to locate exactly what you're looking for. This program is completely portable, meaning you don't have to install it in order to run it.

Although this program is in beta, it currently offers more data to users than some other programs in the category of hardware diagnostics; while not perfect, this program definitely comes in handy when you need to know certain information.

Open Hardware Monitor is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from hardware diagnostic software without restrictions. Open Hardware Monitor 0.8.0 Beta is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
