Publisher's Description

Motherboard Monitor reads temperature and fan RPM data collected by your system's BIOS, displays it in the Windows system tray, and alerts you when there's trouble. You can use this application to manage your resources and alarms by doing things like setting an alarm to go off, or having an email sent to another computer, when your motherboard starts to overheat. You could even have programs start and stop when your CPU reaches predetermined temperatures.

Thanks to an open API, his hard work can be used by third party programmers. I too ain't fond of his GUI (I used it a few years ago mostly for the systray icons it created), but I use his DLL with Samurize now.

Shame about development being stopped. But I think it's more in the hands of mobo makers to change their mind than Alex - he can hardly continue working on something that relies on a steady feed of programming informations from the hardware manufacturers.

Another sad victory for the corporate world :(

Great program! Unfortunately, some producers refuse to submit important data to the author of the program, e.g. MSI could write how to read CPU temperatures from the core of CPU (not socket temperatures). PC Alert 4 submitted by MSI itself does it. I cannot blame the author, but I blame some mobo producers. I do hope that the author of MBM will change his mind and continue the development of the great proggie...

Great program, very useful but I personally don't like the GUI.

Very good tool, FREEWARE and now I can permanently check my CPU temperature. Thanks for it.

It's very simple to disable e.g. fans or volage monitoring cycles (and free query time for SMB access to temperature request only). It offers much more than SpeedFan (even both are great).

I find this program to do too much for my purposes. If you just want to monitor CPU/mobo temperature without a lot of fuss, I suggest something like Speedfan instead.

(Hardware Sensors Monitor is my actual favorite, but its expensive.)

Awesome program, works awesome with my KG7-RAID setup.
And yes, it will work fine on an Intel platform as well ;-)

Been using this prog for couple years now, works great even on this POS PC Chips, Slot A Mobo, Runnin Win XP Pro and 3 cool colors displaying my CPU Temp, Usage and case Temp. So if you have a problem with the Program, Don't blame Alex. Plus It's freeware, so it's not like you lost any $$

Abit KT7A rev 1.3
1GHz 266fsb Athlon @ 1120MHz
512megs CAS2 Micron
Win2K Pro SP2 with Rollover
I've used this program with this setup since last September, 2001, and it's worked perfectly with each version.
Just for the records.
Only this new version has a new .dll that CoolMon doesn't recognize. Proly be a new version of that soon, too.
I give it a 5-thumbsup rating: it's very useful, and I personally have had no issues with it with either win98SE or 2Kpro on this system.

This program is quite picky.
