Once I have tested a rig and verified its operation I only need to check things every once in a while.

 

I use EVEREST to check things out when I feel the need.

 

I like to keep the number of processes to a minimum.

Right, kind of my line of thinking too. Hence my interest in a HW solution.

MBM5 and Everest on my DFI, along with a DMM from time to time. I also use MBM on my Biostar board in the HTPC.

 

The sensors on my Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe are too whacked out to use MBM, so I use Speedfan on that rig. (AsusProbe sucks!)

I use both MBM5 and Smartguardian but I'm more comfortable using the MBM5 since I've been using it for years.

Right now i use Speed Fan, but in the future i plan to get a G15 and use the onboard LCD to monitor my temps and whatnot :D

The G15 does not support teps out of the box. The only thing it has is the proformace monitor, clock, and media sreens, I have an applet from G15 forums that allows me to use speedfan and display it on my G15 LCD.

 

I normaly Use SpeedFan, but haave been known to use MBM5 on occation.

Right now I am working out the bugs on my DFI SLI-DR Expert system, and Speedfan wont work, but I may have just found a Solution to that. BTW Great forums :)

I use the gnome panel system monitor, which works with lm_sensors, a daemon software that interacts with the drivers for varios hardware monitors like the ITE system on most newer DFI boards.

 

Link to "Sensors Applet."

 

Note: This is for linux.
