Open Hardware Monitor 0.6.0
Check the temperature and speed of your system with Open Hardware Monitor

If you have an interest in getting the most from your computer’s hardware, you may well have tried overclocking your system to gain a little extra performance without the need to upgrade your system. Pushing hardware beyond what it was designed to be used for is slightly dangerous and it is a good idea to keep an eye on temperature levels and other information about the components you have tweaked.

This is something that Open Hardware Monitor has been designed to help with. This easy to use, portable application makes it possible to monitor the status of all manner of hardware devices including your processor and hard drive so you can ensure that no damage is being caused to your expensive computer. If you are experimenting with overclocking, this information can help you to determine what settings it is safe for you to use.

The program can be configured to start automatically with Windows so you will always have the information you need to hand. Open Hardware Monitor makes use of SMART sensors to keep your informed of the temperature of your processor and hard drives as well as the state of your graphics card. When it comes to your processor, you can also monitor the bus and core speed as well as the overall load level.

If you would prefer not to use a standard program window to monitor your hardware, there is the option of adding a gadget to your desktop. To this you can add a number of different sensors so the information you are interested in is always to hand. The ability to view the data as a graph means that it is possible to monitor changes over time without having to manually make a note of previous levels.

Verdict:

A great tool for any hardware enthusiast, Open Hardware Monitor helps to keep your hardware within safe parameters.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
