    I´m setting up a new computer and have overclocked the processor (i7-920) about 20%. It's now running at 3,2GHz and I benchmarked it for 8hours with a max temp of 63'C. After this I format all drives and set up everything on a new ssd as OS disk. Now I don't know if it will ever rach 100% usage in the studio but still it feels little bit scary to not know the temps, especially at summer time...last summer I got +27'C in the controlroom! So I don't know how high temps it will reach there.

    To my question: Is there a superlittle resource demanding temp monitoring program that I could run in the background or atleast start and check now and then while I'm in a session? I would be interested in monitoring both cpu and hdd:s...

  5. I haven't heard of SpeedFan - I'll try it out.

    But I've been using Core Temp for several years, and it works well.
