Read an in-depth analysis in our professional review for ASUS PC ProbeII
Monitoring your computer's state does not require that much hardware knowledge and it can really be done by anyone who actually cares for the safety and well-being of his or her PC. It may seem that you have to be on the lookout for a dozen of values regarding voltage, temperature or fan speed when, in fact, there are certain features in specialized software that do it for you.
ASUS PC ProbeII targets the ASUS mainboard user and ensures that any voltage malfunction is not overlooked as well as high temperatures in the computer case or faulty fan operation. It does that by informing you of the current status of hardware statistics in a widget-like manner. You choose which values you want to be displayed and the software provides you with cool yet professionally looking statistical items on your desktop.
If any issue is being detected, the application will inform you through both audio and video warnings which can be enabled or disabled within the `Preference` tab section of the `Config` window. And that's exactly where you have to go the first time you run ASUS PC ProbeII. The `Sensor / Threshold` area hosts the `Temperature`, `Voltage` and `Fan Speed` sections. You can pick from CPU and MB within the first of them as well as set the Threshold value for each one of them.
The Voltage zone provides access to sensors for individual power lines (Vcore, +3.3, +5 and +12) alongside their nominal and current values as well as percentage threshold. Three options are made available for the Fan Speed section – CPU, Chassis and Power. Statistics about hard drive space, memory usage and CPU are also provided by clicking on the `Usage` button of the main window interface.
ASUS PC ProbeII also offers information on Windows Management Instrumentation, Desktop Management Interface and Peripheral Component Interconnect. You can easily choose between Celsius and Fahrenheit as the Temperature Scale, opt for QFan and set the target temperature and enter the `Polling Interval` in seconds (1-120).
Reports regarding alerts and system information can also be viewed by accessing the Report icon next to the `Config` button. The last tweaks can be made within the main window interface by placing the application always on top, enable, place and select the appearance of the monitoring panel, enable sounds or run in boot-up session.
You don't have to be unsure of your computer's stability in order to install ASUS PC ProbeII. Instead, you can choose to easily monitor the voltage, temperature and fan speed and get notified upon errors. This application can provide answers for dilemmas concerning the safety of your PC. If you're a passionate overclocker or not, this handy piece of software will be a great addition to your desktop. It's better to be safe than sorry.
