    Hello,
    Yesterday the CPU cooling fan of my PC stopped working because of dust jam. And computer become hang. The fan is multed. Is there any freeware software that can lookforward to the CPU Temp, Hard Disk Temp, Cooling fan's Speed and can shut down my computer if temp is out of the given range?
    Thanks for your kind help...

    I don't know of any software that will do it (but i know its out there, just google for it). However if all you want is to prevent your computer from destroying itself then you should only look at the BIOS. Your BIOS should have options to throttle the CPU down if it starts to get too hot, and when that fails it can shut down the computer, many BIOSes can also shutdown the computer when the CPU fan fails as well

    However with a properlly installed heatsink and a reasonable amount of maintenance you shouldn't have to worry about your computer overheating. So just keep the dust to a minimum and you should have no problems

    Prevention is better than cure as an old man says. You dont need a temperature monitoring. You need dustfree motherboard (not just the fan but everything inside your CPU.) Cleaning it once in a while can prevent damage to PC components thus can lengthen your PC life. There is a good anti-static cleaner/wiper/brush whatever you call it that is available everywhere.

    And also make sure you have a good ventilation. Let your CPU breath... whoooossshh!

    instead of using an anti static brush couldent you just blow the dust out with a small compressor thats all i used to do when i was useing a desktop pc and now i have a notebook and i have to have a fan matt underneath it to keep it cool lol
