Alienware overheat? need help

Q: Alienware overheat? need help

I am quite concern about my new Alienware Laptop's Temperature which is really high for my amazement. When using programs, copying large files the HDD temperature can go up to 54-55 and the CPU temperature can reach up to 57 Degrees Celsius using the touchmouse on the laptop can be grueling because of the heat.

FYI: My working area is fully air-conditioned, I've also using block object as a laptop stand for better air circulation - though the result is what I have mention above. Please help me how to ease this issue

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Alienware overheat? need help

Nah those temps are fine, my laptops touch mouse can get veryhot too (burns my fingers sometimes aaha) and the underside can get VERY HOT, but as long as the comp doesnt turn off because of over heating, its all good.

thoses temps are fine any way, i have a desktop computer that gets hotter cpu readings than that.

I installed windows 8.1 before and when i played games like Left 4 Dead 2, it never turned off by overheat. But when i upgraded to windows 10, whenever i played the same game, it would never last until the first safehouse (about 10 until 15 minutes) and automatically turned off because overheat. i believe the fan is in a good condition because i just bought it. and yeah i've updated the BIOS from the support.hp.com but the problem is still there. could you give me any help? it's the first HP laptop i've ever bought and just knew that hp always get this problem (no offense). Thank you!

I recently got a new computer and finally got around to downloading SpeedFan. What I saw made me cringe and stutter. My GPU was running at an impressive !150! Celsius. I stopped my computer and cleaned the fan. I got it down to 112 right now, running it on open case (mind you that I monitored it at 239 at some point prior to the reboot). I kid you not, even SpeedFan was capped, showing me 199 on its icon)...GPU's fan is at 1750-1800 RPM and Core's at 1000. Room temp is 21-22 degrees. Is there anything I can do to help this? I dont feel like going to buy a new graphics cards for an already new computer...bypass? clock? RivaTuner(still getting acquainted..)? anything? plz help :/

HAHAHHHH, My brother has a similar motherboard with the same graphics, I think it's suppose to run at the temperature (his ran from 90-120C). I couldn't find a way to fix it, since it's onboard graphics which is with the southbridge. I installed an ATI Radeon HD 4650 and just completely ignored the temperature reading on it, so far, no problems have shown up(after 8months).

A:Overheat

Yes it's very likely that dust has built up in it over the years and that's causing a heat build up. If your technical you can pop the notebook open and clean it out yourself. Otherwise take it to a trusted local repair shop.

problem is cpu overheats like crazy. while i'm writing this post the temperature is 30C (readings from everest). but if i'd go in a game, or install something, or do anything that uses a moderate amount of the CPU it will go in seconds to 60-70 and start to rise until hits 100-110 and goes into shutdown.
it's not the paste.. dust .. heatsink.. or whatever .. i've heard this 100 times .. cleaned . changed paste .. etc.
any solution? thanks
 

A:cpu overheat

How old is the system?

Is this a new problem that recently developed?

Is this a home-built system or is it factory-built?

Have you made any hardware changes to the system before this problem developed?

What proof do you have that the heatsink and fan are properly rated for this system?

I have a KDS valiant - it was overheating before with bad fan bearing noise - I took out the fan and oiled bearing and now it blows fine.
It was OK for about a week but now the overheat warning is going on 20 sec or so after powerup, and the unit shuts off after a few more secs. Yet the fan is blowing cool air out the back.
All I can think of are either:

1: temperature sensor is blown - in which case does anyone know where the sensor is? Hopefully it's not within the processor. I see a chunky little component parked next to the processor,k maybe that is it?

2: Need heat conductor paste b/n processor and cooling/fan assembly. But that would not seem to explain why it suddenly started happening well after I had reinstalled the assembly. HO critical is it to have conductor paste there?

Hi.
I bhought a new graphic card ATI Radeon HD 5750 about week ago and now I suspect that it make my CPU AMD Phenom II x2 550 overheat as there was no temperature problem with old card.
When I am not running program or game which use a high graphic resources- cpu allright.
As soon as I start game cpu moniter shows 100% use on both cores and after a while temperature goes over 90C+.
Where is a problem? I cant really work out why graphic card exchange could cause it.
Thanks a lot.

A:CPU overheat

That sounds like a background services or resource issue

I don't think the card would cause this unless you are freezing during game play

Could be something with the game that brings it up but keep in mind the gpu would get really hot too if it was the case

how's the gpu temps ? have you checked them and a 5750 is a pretty low end compared to whats out right now

Also if you can you might want to throw a couple screen shots out to us to help you better deal with the situation cpu temp resource monitor and the ccc to monitor temps i would also go as far to download cpuz to see if there other issues one more thing was the heatsink installed by you or was it bought already put together ?

What was the really needed time for computers to rest?
If you use it for 16hours..playing will it shorten your Hard drive life?and can it actually overheat your system if you wont let your PC rest for a while??

Just asking..well my fan was burned.but i dont actually play 16 hours..it was just 2 hours 3 times a day,randomly. .
Was it the caused?

A:OVERHEAT

Don't know about that,but speaking from personal experience i have let my pc run 84 hours strait, was during a lan and it was playing warcaft,counterstrike and black ops non stop, i was not playing for 84 hours,the time was devided between 8 friends,it was part of a 4day lanning theme thing,but my point is i did not get problems with my rig,but if you think logicaly about it i would say you should shut it down for a hour or two after gaming so long.(the game manuals suggest resting 15 minutes per 1 our play,but that for your sight,you could do that. hahaha

Hi guys,

I am currently using a AMD Phenom Quad core processor 2.20GHz. The problem i have is when i run SpeedFan to check the temp of my cores i noticed that one of my cores was overheating around 13C more than the rest.

It shows on SpeedFan:

Temp1: 33C
Temp2: 36C
Temp3: 50C
Core: 30C

Now does this mean that one of my cores are overheating more than normal or am i reading SpeedFan wrong?

Thanks for your time

Its a bit high, but on a stock heatsink, that's to be expected. Try pushing some more cool air with fans over the CPU and a good exhaust out the top or back.

I bought a brand new Intel 101gccl motherboard and a Pentium 4 640 3.2ghz processor
which comes with a heatsink and a fan.The problem is that when I started the computer

the cpu was 65 C and raising up to 90 C,with the chassis opened!.The next thing
I did was to unplug the power and touch the heatsink and it was warm, almost cold. The
fan is working properly and it's new so there's no dust on it. Why is the motherboard
reading that temp? .Any help would be appreciated

Hi,

Did you apply thermal paste between the CPU/Heatsink? If not, do not turn on the computer again until you have got some thermal paste - Arctic is a good brand.

A:GTX 970 overheat

Cris1,
As far as I understand normal GPU temps are always higher than the cpu and only a real concern if above 80c when highly stressed. You may want to add another intake fan or exhaust fan if you have open spots? Or you can look to add higher performance fans to get more air flow.

I understand that you're not having BSOD's - but these reports will help us see what's going on inside of your system.

In general, an overheating event will have the exact symptoms that you describe - to include no records in the Event Viewer. But there are other problems that can have the same symptoms, so a look at the reports requested above may give us some hints.

What kind of lubrication is safe and how do i go about lubricating it. As you can see from the picture (scroll down) then fan is enclosed in a heatsink and i wont have much access to it.

A:Overheat problem \(;o;)/

You need to reseat the heatsink to the cpu, using a small amount of heatsink compound.

If the heatsink does not have a perfect thermal bond with the CPU, overheating will occur despite the heatsink and fan being dust-free.

A:CPU Overheat warning

It might be a good idea to reapply the paste, but be aware that it's a complicated job on a laptop, and there is a good chance that you could break your laptop. It might be best to have that done by a qualified technician.

Also, if it were me, I would not mess around with the fan control on a laptop. It does what it does for a reason, and there are algorithms and routines (that are far smarter than we are) running the show to keep it from overheating.

Lastly, are your ports blocked by dust? Or are you running the lappy on a soft surface, such as a bed? That can cause overheating.

How do I clean my laptop?

- Always put the laptop on a firm surface (not a pillow, bedspread, etc) so vents are not blocked.

- Consider using a laptop cooling pad for additional ventilation.

I got a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600 with updated drivers. Please help.

Hi guys,
I've been having some trouble with my PC overheating when playing games, or doing other intensive stuff.
Upon checking my CPU temp after such a restart it will be high, like 80s or even 90s. Although, to my knowledge the CPU fan is working fine (currently running at 3013 RPM accoridng to everest).

Also, I've had my PC restart when doing menial tasks and without my CPU temp being high.
So I don't know whether the two problems are definitely linked.

My specs are:
Windows XP pro
AMD athalon 64 3500+
1024 ram
geforce 6600

Cheers.
 

A:CPU overheat and pc restart

Centigrade !!!
I would upgrade my CPU fan and cooling system. Also add a Case fan.
Actually, for what you are doing at those temperatures, I would consider a liquid cooled system.

Hi, I just installed Windows Seven on my laptop. Everything works correctly but, if I began install MS Office or Nero computer was very hot and fall down. I opened window and put laptop there - on the fresh air and installation was successful. Can you tell me how to decrease performance of Windows seven??? I also tried CPU meter and CPU temperature was around 80?C. Thanks you for hint

A:Windows Seven and overheat CPU

Sounds like the machine needs to be opened and cleaned out. Like the fan and heat sink of dust and dirt etc...

Hey guys.

I need your help, my pc shuts down whenever i play medal of honor/counterstrike, do anything intensive with CPU and GPU.

speedfan has GPU at 51 degrees, temp 1 @ 117 degrees and core at 111 degrees.
these are all celcius...
Ive reseated the processor, cleaned and reapplied arctic silver yesterday, and today it did the same.

Also it chucks up a silly error with a fan spinning at 135000 RPM... would keep it cold if it was doing that

Any idea why its not cooling enough, i mean the side of the case is off...so its ventilated really well..



edit : forgot specs..
AMD x2 dual core 5200+
3gb ram
nvidia 9500GT 512 gfx

A:Overheat and shutdown!

Hi Paddy


My first guess would be that SpeedFan isn't reading things correctly for your board. My next guess is that SpeedFan might also be not only reading the speed of the cpu fan incorrectly, it might be slowing it down.

Try uninstalling SpeedFan, and test to see if the game causes a shutdown.

The other thing I'd check -- when the system shuts off, unplug the power & ground yourself -- and see if the cpu is burning hot. Check the gpu too. If the cpu truly seems overheated, try a different fan. If you are overclocking the cpu at all, revert to stock speeds (on everything: cpu, gpu, memory, power). If you have a gaming motherboard, check the settings in the Bios to make sure you're not overclocking something unintentionally.

Best of luck

A:HD 7970 Overheat

If its a brand new card, RMA it. If software is implying an overheat but it isn't hot to touch it could be a bad heatsink, poor thermal compound etc. Regardless what the problem is, it doesn't appear to be working correctly so should be RMA'd.

However, what are you other system specs?
What PSU do you have and how old is it?
What temps does the rest of your system run at?

Hello all,

I have the Pentium D Dual core 3.20 GHZ CPU in my computer and it has been overheating.

Last week it shut down due to heat, and earlier today it was at 112 F (44.5 C).

Attached is a screenshot from my BIOS "Hardware Monitor"

A:Pentium D CPU Overheat 112 F

Have you opened your case and cleaned out the dust from your case? Excessive dust in a case building up from long periods of not being maintained can cause heat. I would open my case and see if it has alot of dust around the area were the heat sink and fan were the cpu is located and clean it out with a compressed air can. Just make sure if your touching parts inside the case to be touching something metal like the outside of the case to avoid a static discharge to your components. Or you can wear a static wrist band and do it like that but I just keep one hand touching the case while the other one is cleaning the case to avoid a static discharge.I recommend doing this with the plug to the power removed though to avoid getting shocked.

Hey guys I m not exactly sure where to post this but here goes Recently I won a new computer at a recent gaming competition Last night I decided to try to overclock a bit I used the ATI Catalyst Control to do the AMD overdrive It was testing on Ghz and I decided to stop it After restarting the CPU Overdrive was enabled and I didn t really want to OC it so I just turned it off However now when I run Diablo my game keeps freezing every so often I ve overclocked the computer seems overheat Computer to manually before to about Ghz at V I think and it was fine for awhile till it started to overheat about degrees if I recall Computer seems to overheat correctly That s when I noticed slight freezing in CS GO and I reset the settings So right now I don t know if the issue is a CPU or a GPU overheating issue Also I downloaded the AMD OverDrive program and turned down my turbo boost to x multiplier Mhz and V as opposed to V I logged the CPU temperature while running Diablo and it seems its hovering around degrees which seems fine to me I also recently updated the ATI drivers last night to Also my computer runs on watercooling have no idea how it works I hope someone can shed some light on what I ve done as clearly I m an OC noob I d like to know what the are steps to troubleshoot and if I damaged anything on my computer Below are the specifications of my computer AMD FX ATI Radeon Series Not sure which model exactly ASUS M A X EVO Kingston HyperX RAM Gb Not sure what clock speed but AMD OverDrive says KHX C D LK GX if that helps PSU W Thanks so much in advance Update I just flashed a new BIOS to my mobo and the problem is still imminent It does not seem to happen when I play CS GO However now I get random freezes on desktop like when I bring up Skype nbsp

Update: I believe I have solved the issue. Apparently, it was the new ATI Catalyst 12.10 that was causing the freezing issues. I rolled back my drivers to 12.8 and everything seems fine at the moment. Anyone can shed some light as to why this happens though? Thanks so much.

My laptop computer has decided it just won't turn on twice now in one month! Both times it felt really hot when this happened.
When pushing the power button there is no response at all. The first time the LED's for battery and outlet power would'nt even light up. Then several days later it suddenly worked fine.
This time the LED's were lit when plugged in. I unplugged it, and the next day re-plugged it in, the LED's lit up and it worked fine again. Could the transformer be malfunctioning?
This is an HP Pavilion N3210.

Is that even possible? 150C is mega hot! surely the computer should have shutdown through fault?

Hello Dear community

I runned Speccy to check up what is wrong with my computer (during games like dying light, FPS drops to 10 / War Thunder lowest settings 30 FPS / Insurgency lowest settings 20 FPS) at the beginning of the game, all games run smooth with 60 FPS

Surprisingly, my Motherboard shows C121 temperature (and no, its not Fahrenheit) Overall, my temperature values are yellow without running anything resource-intensive.

I am wondering if my recent FPS drops can be correlated with my motherboard or the temperature values.

May you help me please?

I do not have a major problem with this. However I would like to find a solution to keeping my HDD temperature down. I will not use any aluminum in my computer. Thats not to bright. I will not put liquid near my computer so thats out. My HDD i perfect. I want to keep it that way. I am also concerned about vibration in the solution and frequency. I won't go overboard on this. There should be an overall solution to this. However for some unknown reason. Even computer manufacturers and HDD manufacturers don't have it. So maybe in Europe or something they have a high speed dual plastic fan. Thank you.

If the fan does not work you need to either replace the fan which a store like Radio Shack might carry or replace the video card. A 9800 could well be under warranty BTW.

I've been using my laptop for some time now and this day, while I was playing Lord of the Rings Online, it suddenly turned off. When I press the power button it only blinks for a split second and turns back off but after around 1-2 minutes, I am able to turn it on again. I've been playing Lord of the Rings Online for several days and this never happened. Is my laptop crashing? or is it just overheating because the side was quite hot when I touched it while I was playing. Whenever I turn it on, no BSOD, no warning saying "System recoved from error" etc.
Here are specs af ever they are needed.

Although I cannot see a relationship between overheating and a virus (or an AV program), the fact that BB told you they found a "few viruses" gets my attention. It does not sound to me like you have a hardware problem, so what I recommend is you download and install HiJackThis (HJT) install the program, close all open windows, launch HJT and click the "Do a system scan and save a log file" button. The log file will save in Notepad. Copy the entire file a paste it into a reply to this thread.

DO NOT FIX ANYTHING. Most of what is listed is required for your system to operate. Wait for one of the authorized HJT analysts to provide you instructions.

What program was it that you uninstalled?

Does the laptop feel hot to the touch anywhere on it when this happens. Usually this will be near the touchpad or anywhere along the wrist rest.

Are you running it on a soft surface when this happens, like a bed, couch, your lap? Despite the name, a laptop really should be on a hard surface when used. The air vents are on the bottom and can easily get blocked on a soft surface. You are also more likely to get lint into the fans and heat sinks from fabric surfaces.

A:GPU Replacement (Slimline Overheat)

You may need to do more than just upgrading... but more on that later. As I see it there is only two things that actually should be upgraded and that is the power supply and system fans. Your graphics card could actually be fine- as long as you don't keep it under extreme load for long (90+C* is usually the highest that nvidia cards can take. Don't know about ATI cards) it may still survive and not need to be replaced. The Graphic Card rating for PSU is the minimum that graphic card needs to function correctly and probably the reason the fan is not working as the moment. More fans are always a good thing.

Now to what I was mentioning before, slimline computers don't give a lot of room for upgrading and the position of components is one of its major drawbacks. The only way around this is to literally "spider" or "octopus" the computer.

The term spider and octopus means to literally take the components out of the computer and to secure them to a frame usually made of metal or plastic. (I used CD pack lids flipped upsided down on three corners of the case [[secured with duct tape]] where I support my hard drives- which rest on the "top" of them ) I do this for the DVD/CD Rom drive and PSU as well. This gives me the ability to put alot of fans by the into the case. (I have a total of 5 fans in my computer right now and one is actually a fan card placed next to my gpu to keep it extra cool.

I would first suggest that you look up a power supply that is at least two to three times your current 220 wattage. I would also recommend getting some plastic sheets or metal frame to secure the components outside the computer case (if I had a camera I would show you) I would also recommend getting 120mm or 140mm fans for the best fan cooling implimention. Or if you could afford it liquid cooling would always be the best choice.

I've got a 2 yr old Toshiba A505 laptop. Earlier today, I shut it down, then on attempted restart absolutely nothing would happen. No lights, no sound etc. After a few minutes I was able to boot it normally.

So I tried it again, same thing. Wouldn't start. No lights, no indication that the "on" switch worked.

Then after another few minutes it started normally.

So I shut it down again and flipped it over. I noticed some dust restriction on the air intake and realized that overheating may have been the problem. So I blew everything out and have now restarted it several times normally. Apparently that fixed it.

So the question is, is that the normal symptom of laptop overheating? I need this machine to be reliable so if there's much chance that something else is the problem I need to replace it right away.

How did you discern it was overheating? Also, you said that you found out what the problem is, so I'm not understanding what assistance you'd like from us. If you want to know what you can do to remedy the overheating issue, you can try the following:
Check system for dust and clear any present
Check all your fans to see if they're all running properly
Your friend may not have placed the CPU heatsink/fan on the CPU properly, or improperly applied thermal paste between the CPU and the heatsink. Try getting your friend to reinstall the CPU fan/heatsink to ensure this isn't the case.
Check airflow in the case to make sure that hot air is properly being ejected and cool air is entering.

That should ensure for the most part that things are running moderately cool and stable.

Wow first off i hope PC Wizard is reading your DIMM voltage wrong, DDR2 should top out at 2.4 volts max for the fastest DDR2. I recommend taking out your RAM and looking for the voltage on it, and putting it in the BIOS manually. Then check if PC wizard shows the voltage that you input.

If PC Wizard shows the new voltage correctly you should download and burn memtest http://www.memtest.org/#downiso to see that there is no permanent damage to the DIMMS.

BTW: its not uncommon for a CPU of the NETBURST architecture to run up to 80C

Hey everyone, so I think I have boiled down the problem to my video card overheating. (Original prob was that my system would freeze whenever it was on for more than an hour) Microsoft support said they could not find any problems with any of the .evt files that I sent them, but said that temperature was one of the main causes of freezes and hang-ups. So after I shut my computer off and opened the case, the video card was blazing hot! And I mean hot, cooking eggs hot! What causes this to happen? I have no idea and would like some input so that I can end this madness for good. Thanks alot.

I know for sure that the card is able to fit inside the case as i have already measured it. Thanks in advance.

My dad has a big problem recently, and is with his HP Pavilion DV6 -1280us.
Its AMD Turion X2 ZM-87 @ 2.4 GHz is Overheating, and reaching mid 80?C temperatures.

I've checked this with Speccy.

Eventually the computer either freezes or Shuts Down (No BSD yet, AFAIK)

Motherboard seems to also get a temperature increase.

The computer was recently cleaned, since it was thought that the vent had been blocking the air flow.

I've tried putting the PC to Power Saver, but nothing.

A:Laptop CPU Overheat. Reaches Beyond 80C

Wait... I've found the CPU usage is around 90%. I've just killed WD Management engine, which was using 64 - 70%.

I thought, that it was need of thermal paste (which I don't know if the guy who the computer was sent to applied it or not).

I'll post back if that was the main problem.
Edit: Seems I've sorted out the problem. It seems that the WD was the main cause of the Processor Overheat.

Now the CPU has dropped to 55?C which is the normal temperature for the laptop.

Anyways, thanks for the help

And yeah it heats a lot! so i got a different fan for it, now the cpu is fine, but the ram is the one that is heating...What do I do?
I cant mesure the temperature because i dont have the monitor, so how do I go about it? the case is pritty hot...Im worried that my ram will fry out soon if I keep it same way.
my specs are :

A:GeForce 4 overheat question

From my experience, the air ventilation inside your casing is an important factor to the temperature inside your PC. In my case, my Athlon XP dropped from 59C to 47C on idle (I have a small casing). You would probably wanna check whether the ventilation within your casing is efficient.

Problem:

My computer keeps restarting for no apparent reason. I've performed a memtest, It passed. When I leave my computer on, doing nothing, it doesn't restart.

I've reinstalled my PC, formatting it completely, didn't help.

I've unchecked the "Automatically restart PC on error" and no BSOD shows up.

It's not overheating, since I've got a little monitor on my computer box, always monitoring the CPU heat, and it's always 40-50 degrees celsius.

Any idea what could be done?
 

A:Windows XP restarting randomly (not overheat)

If NOT using keyboard but just browsing, etc with mouse, does this happen?

Or the alternative (typing a bunch, no mouse).

Hi,My g6-2305sl often go over the 95 C with a cpu activity of 50-60%.I tried to update the bios (currently i have the F.26 version), clean the inside of the laptop and to change the thermal paste, but the temperature didn't drop significantly. Even in energy saving mode and with a cpu activity around 30% the temperatura go from 88 to 94 C. What can i do to return to a normal temperature?

Dear Lenovo, I have recently bought a Lenovo y50-70  with a Western Digital SSHD of 1 TB (not more than a month old) and I noticed a few times it makes a clicking noise when I put it to hibernate. Also the hard light is flashing at every click, which is about at an interval of 30 seconds. I presume it doesn't hibernate but it somehow blocks in an on-sleep state because it's getting warm and the keyboard lights flash.Also the SSHD gets often very high temps, the maximum was 57 Celsius but it usually gets 52 in full load and in normal use 40-45 Celsius.Please, tell me if the hard is going to have problems or even die, I have my diploma and I don't want to loose everything I worked on just right now xD

A:AMD Athlon XP 1900+ overheat, dead?

CPU check is usually done on the underside (pin side), generally with a fried Athlon, right in the centre you notice it discoloured very slightly. If you sniff this part you usually get the scorched metallic smell (not always).
Must say though if the cpu was fried you would not get post at all. Sounds more like the motherboard or memory, have you tried swapping the memory out ? If possible try the cpu in another board.

A:Video Cards: Any that don't overheat horribly?

Good excuse to upgrade to a Radeon HD 5750 or 5770
You could probably just have the heatsink full of dust though... (if this is not built recently and always have had the overheating problem). Take a can of compressed air or an air compressor and go outside to blow the card, and preferably the whole computer clean...
Still, with that kind of an outrageous overheating (and artifacts already at ~80-90 C, shouldn't be happening), there's something wrong with the card...

Dear All,

Please suggest me a software for my Win 8 64 bit which can monitor my CPU temp such that when temp goes beyond a specified value say 70 degree celsius, the program will pop up a warning, some sound also.

I tried the latest version of core temp, but whenever temp exceeded my specified settings, the prog stops working. Any other software?

Thanks,
Troy.

I haven't used it in a few years, but I believe Speedfan will alarm at high temps.

A:ASUS 8800GTS overheat soultion?

ASUS EN8800GTS 640MB Graphic Card used about 120 watt from Power Supply, is your PS strong enough. Asus p5wdh have some utilites tool on Motherboard driver cd "PCprobe", so you can monitor voltages, coolers, temperature of CPU and Mobo for example.
try to also install some tool for your VGA, maybe you can find it also on VGA driver cd.
