I am currently in the Philippines and it is a bit hotter here than in good old cold Germany. When I am working at the beach, I can literally feel my laptop sweating. It is a high-end laptop and its power adapter is as big and as heavy as a netbook; its components therefore produce a lot of heat. With CPUID HWMonitor I always have an eye on the temperature of various devices.

CPUID Hardware Monitor

I reviewed other tools for measuring temperature a while back (Real Temp, SpeedFan), but I like CPUID HWMonitor better. At least on my Dell laptop, it can display the temperatures of more devices than the other two tools (CPU, GPU, hard disks, ACPI, battery capacity). What devices are supported seems to be dependent on the kind of machine where you run CPUID HWMonitor. I also like that it shows the minimum and the maximum temperature that each component has had since you launched the tool.

CPUID HWMonitor is a standalone tool, so it comes in handy if you quickly want to check the internal temperatures on a server. I tested version 1.15.
