When I was shopping for my laptop I scoured through forums and I noticed that those with Asus Z96Js laptops (like mine) knew the temperature of the cpu and yet I can't seem to find the utility to monitor the temp for my laptop. Anyone know what it's called?

Something like this (http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Video-Tweak/ASUS-SmartDoctor.shtml)?
I know my mobo came bundled with PCprobe (http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Info/ASUS-PC-Probe.shtml)

PC Probe, if it's the same as for Asus desktop motherboards. Can't find it or anything simmilar on Asus's support site for your notebook though.
Maybe the desktop version also works on notebooks:

P.S: I hate Asus's support page and the servers crawl when downloading

Am I the only one who immediately makes the association between PC-Probe and aliens? :alien:
:D

There also are third party applications which - while often less detailed - can offer sufficient information:
Mainboard Monitor (MBM) (http://mbm.livewiredev.com/), no longer further developped
SpeedFan (http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php)
Both also work together with Samurize (http://www.samurize.com/), which can be fun to play with. :)

Installed the PC Probe but it says I don't have an Asus mobo!! :confused: Maybe it was designed for desktop mobo's only? Anyways, will have to the utilities that VJ reommended.
