HWMonitor Pro is a simple, yet powerful hardware monitoring software solution that displays in the main window the system temperature, voltage, fan speed and many other important factors and variables of your computer. Because of its expanded tree view, you can easily monitor each parameter. For example, you have the possibility to view and track the CPU core temperatures, while analyzing other details such as the assembly temperatures of the main hard drive.
One special feature that makes the application to get outside the box is the ability to add monitored values to the system tray, which can be performed from the right-click menu. Therefore, each time a value will change, you will surely get notified. What’s more interesting about HWMonitor Pro is that you can easily connect to a specific IP address or another network through a simple TCP / IP connection, so you can watch the sensors of one or several distant computers.
HWMonitor Pro comes with a user-friendly interface and enables you to automatically create graphs for each logged session and save them as bitmap files, as well as to save the monitoring and the SMBus data. The application handles the most common sensor chips and tracks only the components that have compatible sensors, depending on your brand and model of motherboard, processor, keyboard etc. In addition, it can read modern CPU core thermal sensors and access the main health sensors on your system.
As it would be expected from this utility, it uses few resources, so it doesn’t burden the overall performance of the computer, nor interfere with other programs’ functionality.
If a popup like this one appears, unblock HWMonitor Pro. You can also manually configure a firewall exception, in order it grants access to HWMonitor Pro. As an example, here are the steps to follow for Windows integrated firewall :
Open Windows Firewall (Settings, then Control Panel), then click on the tab Exceptions. Choose Add Port…, then enter CPUID Hardware Monitor Pro as name, 25021 as port number, and check TCP
