Monitoring a P4a

Does anyone know of a good monitoring program for an SIS 645-P4a system? I"ve been using MBM for my Thunderbird, but I don't think it will work on the new system. On a related subject, I also need a software cooling program for the SIS. I know, I know, they don't work at full load, but for my uses, VCool has kept the TB 1000@1600 below 30 most of the time. Without VCool, it ran over 40 while surfing the web.

Thanks,

OK I am just starting to mess with the P-4's but here goes..

SiS has their own monitoring program called"agent" or something like that, it is a little spinning cube in the task bar is pretty much all I remember.. as for software cooling on a P-4, I think it has somethin like that built in, but regardless Rain and CPUidle are both decent programs that should work

Thanks for the info about the SIS program-I wasn't aware of it. I've checked MBM and MB Probe, but neither will work on the SIS chipset.

Neither Rain, CPUIdle, Waterfall, or VCool will work on the SIS chipset. NT is suppose to have a built in HLT Command system, but either MS left it out of XP or I don't know how to activate it.

Thanks again.

O'Dell did you find the program Joe reccomended? I have a sis chipset on my P4S333M and I would like to monitor temps. I am using Asus probe which is probably fine but I don't like it.

Hi Bender,

I checked the SIS website, but couldn't find it. The only program I've found that will monitor temps on the SIS645 is Sandra, and it doesn't put the temps in the systray. You have to open it to check. Anyway, I think it reads high. My P4a 2.0 always reads from 44 C to 53 C when I check, and doesn't matter much if it's at 2.0 or 2.5. I run at default VCore.

Someone said that they used MBM on an EPoX 4SDA like mine, but I can't get it to work. The system temp is OK at 27 or 28 [I need more airflow], but the CPU temp reads 112 C. If that was the case, my system would be on fire.

I think there is a temp monitor utility on the cd that comes with the motherboard.
I can't remember the name now.

You're right, there is a monitoring program on the CD. I tried it tonight, but it doesn't read the CPU temp-only the system.

Thanks anyway,
