A few days ago I had to replace my power supply. After installing the new power supply, I was intermittently getting a beeping noise. I went into my CMOS and noticed that it was set to warn if the CPU temperature got up to 50 degrees cel. The actual temperature that I noted was 49 degrees. I suspect it hit 50 which turned on the warning. I increased the warning level to 55 degrees and I haven't heard the beep since.
Since I never heard this warning with the old power supply, I suspect the new one has slightly less fan power.
Since my motherboard and the CPU report actual temperature to CMOS, I'm wondering if there is a free or shareware program that will display temperatures within Windows? If anyone knows of one, I would appreciate it.
