Prevent PC Overheat

I just came across this cool gadget called Temperature@lert. What basically this gadget do is monitor the temperature of my pc or notebook so that I know when it is time to switch it off unless I want my system to overheat.

My notebook, Miss Fly, is practically running 24/7 so this gadget would really come in handy. It connects via USB so it is really convenient. I love my notebook and I would hate it if only after three shorts months it burned out or something simply because I did not take good care of it.

Anyway, here's the press release on the product so perhaps you like to check out their website to see what this gadget is all about.

Press Release:

SPECpower_ssj2008 is the latest installment of an IT industry benchmark evaluates the power and performance characteristics in larger volume server class computers. It was created out of a need to monitor and regroup energy use from the IT industry and computer manufactures around the world.

SPECpower_ssj2008 does not only measure AC power from the source but it delivers a calibrated matrix for all computer functions including ambient temperature. There are two temperature measuring tools that are compatible with SPECpower_ssj2008 and the only one with support for 64-bit drivers is Temperarture@lert.

With the combination of the SPECpower_ssj2008 and Temperature@lert system administrators can run both temperature and power controls. The SPECpower_ssj2008 measures power for the AC input and combines the implementation to a performance metric. This provides pertinent information about what power considerations are made when considering which data center. Coupled with Temperature@lert, the power and temperature gradient works in symbiotic form to provide the best accuracy available in the IT industry.

We'd like to extend a special thanks to Greg D. and his team at Dell Inc. whose deep knowledge and expertise made this possible.
