    Hardware monitoring software.

    I'm looking for software on windows 7 that will allow me to view my hardware's current temperatures and clock rates. I've found one for my gpu (GPU-Z) but would like something that does cpu as well.

    Any recommendation would be appreciated. =)

    Aida64 is what I'm using. It's the successor to Lavalys' Everest (some people still don't know that).

    Word of warning - i've noticed that some SMART monitoring software tends to spin drives up to read the information which can be an issue on systems where you'd rather than didn't happen (like a fileserver).

    open hardware monitor is a good tool for checking temps, fan speeds, etc

    got to agree there, open hardware monitor is basically hardware monitor with extra readings
