Reading System Tempeture

P: n/a
Hi all

Does any one know of a way of reading the system's temperature from Intel
boards temp sensors?

I want the readings like Intel's Active Monitor
(http://www.kryptos.info/screenshoots/intelam.JPG).

Thanks in advance.

look at the Win32_TemperatureProbe class in WMI.
here's an example:
http://vbnet.mvps.org/index.html?cod...atureprobe.htm

the above is in vb script. if you want to port it to vb .net, make use class
in the
System.Management namespace (these are wrappers for the WMI and work
more or less the same way)

however, to save you grief in case the above does not work, here are a few
links which
mention why the above technique might not work always:

hope this helps..
