    My home built PC was shutting down, and you could smell hot wires, once I put speecy on and monitored hard drive, cpu, cores, and graphic card temps in celcius I was able to determine I needed more cooling, new case, extra fans, and huge copper heat sink fixed the problem for good. I put it in the startup group and run it all the time.

    Rhody... :cool:

    I don't have heat problems, but this looks like a nice tool to have around anyway!

    Greg,

    Trust me you will love it, add new hardware no problem, it detects it each and every time you boot, the discovery process takes about 30 seconds to a minute.
