    that temp is fine.

    I do not know how to switch the fans to Max on that notebook, it should be automated.

    I have Asus G1S

    My GPU temp scares me :s, 100° in full load and 74-78 in Idle. The CPU in idle 65 and in full reach easily 80°. In fact its normal, both share the same heatpipe, however i will not be surprised if tomorrow my lappy burns. I am right know in Korea for 6 months so I ordered a ZAlman ZM_NC 1000 cooler.

    you can set up a shortcut to open the hardware monitor using keys, as long as Rivatuner is running in the system tray, the shortcut will launch the harware monitor.
    I will post a little guide as soon as I get home.

    Ok... here is something to make it simpler for all. :)

    :wink: UPDATE (2007-11-01): (Optional) :wink:
    How to setup custom shortcut key to open Hardware Monitor

    1) Open RivaTuner, go to the Launcher tab, and click the green (+) icon
    [​IMG]

    2) Select RivaTuner module activation item and hit OK
    [​IMG]

    3) This is quick, so read carefully.
    ... i) Name the shortcut anything you want (Ex. Hardware Monitor Shortcut)
    ... ii) click inside the Associated hotkey box, and make a custom keystroke that you want to use (I choose: Ctrl + ` )
    ... iii) under Module type, choose Low-level module
    ... iv) under Module name, choose Hardware monitoring
    ... v) click OK when done.
    [​IMG]

    4) you are done adding the new shortcut, hit OK (to hide the Rivatuner to tray)
    [​IMG]

    Now when you start up your computer, when you see the RivaTuner tray icons appear in the taskbar, you can use the shortcut key to open up the Hardware Monitor.

    Its just that easy.

    Nice. :)

    Are there temperature widgets for WinVista that you can just simply add on to your desktop for view? the ones that check for CPU, RAM, HDD, and GPU temperature? That'd makes things much easier.

    At the moment, RivaTuner or Everest are your best chances to get the most temp monitors on the desktop.
