Using the utility is especially important if the gadget freezes during operation, does not respond quickly enough to commands, or heats up very quickly.
By downloading Open Hardware Monitor for free from the official site, the user gets the opportunity to track information from temperature sensors installed on his computer, evaluate the speed of coolers, the voltage supplied to the PC, the clock speed, the presence and characteristics of installed drives, their load and many other parameters. It only takes a few seconds to get data about all monitored components.
This program is adapted to work with all models and modifications of "iron" used in modern technology and allows you to obtain information about the peak temperatures of various components.
