Computer Utilities
I know All of us have many Programs loaded onto our systems to monitor / alter / and everything else to our systems.

What do you use?
I'm looking to enhance my tools, I only have CPU-Z and CoreTemp , but I would rather try out some new programs if possible.

THanks Everyone!

Ahhh cool, I am assuming those are the standards out there for usable software?

Thanks for the re-direct,

Well, been testing them out so far and I'm happy with most of them.
Hardware Monitor though is really strange for what is says on my system status. But that could be perhaps because I use Intel Boards.
Seeing as How I can't OC this thing, I suppose I'll have to wait till I get a diff Board in here to test those Programs out. Although I do have CPUZ on here.

Edit: Tried both Hardware Monitors, neither of them read my Chipset Temp right (they both say 105 Degrees C , and my cpu is at 1 Degree C.
So I guess those ones won't work on my DG35EC.

THanks for the tools,
