I thought this would be a good idea for a thread. Get a central location where newbies and the un-knowing can get ideas for software for monitoring their hardware. So, what do you use? I'd like to keep a master list on this second post so the person looking doesn't have to trail through a huge thread. 

 

Thanks!

We should turn this into a monitor/test thread for a one stop shop for all your computer "tool" needs.

Smart man. 

Anyone that has any testing or monitoring software, post!

I have one to add since my last post

Monitoring:  Everest (Ultimate Edition)

Great software for temps, but also gives a $hit-ton-load of other info.

-edit- nm, Nackers mentioned AIDA64 and it's the new Everest. Great software.
