Most people seem to go for Speedfan. However check your mobo manufacturers website first as they often have utilities for this GUI overclocking and temp/speed monitoring.

I like Aida64. It's not free, but for the price you get a hell of a lot of information!

That's really cool. The bloatware that came with my ASUS board is terrible, so now I can finally remove it!

The ASUS software that came with my board is flipping sweet. It works and the GUI is really well done as well. Gigabytes software was fucking hopeless though.

EDIT: Who's wrong and why?


I may have this wrong, but I beleive this is the deal:
Different manufacturers report sensor info differently. Speedfan initially takes a best guess on how to read the data. Sometimes it interprets a reading differently so you get a hugely incorrect number but you can adjust this via an offset feature within the program to be more accurate. Sometimes it mixes up the sensors. I've had it tell me the GPU temp on a vid card that had no temp sensor according to the manufacturer site.
Speedfan takes some tweaking for some of us especially with newer hardware.

Your manufacturers software should be as accurate as the BIOS. It is configured for the sensors on the board.

AIDA64 seems to just work from install. I think they have a more extensive library of hardware packed into the application. But it has a lot of features which many might consider at bloatware. Personally I just use it to give me a pretty G19 screen.

Speedfan has the smallest resource footprint as far as I know.

SpeedFan is a bit weird, if your mobo isn't on supported list - it's pretty useless. Most of the time, all my hardware never seems to be!

Cool, thanks for the reply. I didn't anywhere with SpeedFan, so I'll stick with the bloated ASUS software for now.
