Open Hardware Monitor
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.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.1:

- You can now tap send on messages when you don't have a connection. Messages will be queued up and sent when your phone regains a connection. 
- Redesigned storage usage screen lets you manage your phone's storage space by clearing certain message types, like videos, from specific chats (Settings -- Data and Storage Usage -- Storage Usage).
- Send up to 30 photo or videos at once now.
