Question I need good software to monitor my temps.

Up until recently I've been using Asus PC Probe (came with motherboard), but it's been having issues working properly. It's been occasionally crashing and .dll error messages when starting up. I must have reinstalled it a few times with no success. It will work fine for a few days, but after a few restarts it will screw up again.

So, what's some good software to monitor temperature?

HWMonitor is good for system temps and coretemp is good for cpu only, you can even get a gadget for it.

OpenHardwareMonitor is an open source program like HWMonitor and works well in my experience.

I bought a license for Aida64 and have used it for the last few years. Well worth the $$.

I'm a big fan of HWInfo64. It monitors every sensor you can think of, and it has a highly configurable desktop gadget that displays whatever info you want. Mine shows memory use, core voltage, core clock, CPU usage, core temps, and fan speeds. And it's free!

Agree with jkauff. HWInfo64 makes GPU-Z, Task Manager and HWMonitor redundant.

Thanks for all your suggestions!

I will definitely try out a few of these and see which I prefer. Normally I would just google search, but when it comes to health of my computer I like direct feedback from the community.

I like the HWMonitor and other applications. I have found it to be one of the best temperature programs out there.
