    Temperature & fan speed monitoring software; Is there any real need to have it?

    Thanks very much (as usual) for the enlightenment on this subject, Peter! I don't really do a lot of stuff on this machine; the temp icon in the Speccy program has always remained between 27 degrees C - 31 degrees C.

    Temperature & fan speed monitoring software; Is there any real need to have it?

    Good afternoon everyone, I have heard of and even briefly looked at a few of these programs which monitor your computer's internal temperatures and fan speeds.
