The AMD site

I just hit on your link, got the site, downloaded and installed the program
on my Opteron 185. No issues. I can email it to you if you want.....let me
know.

Yes, indeed, I downloaded it.  Umpteen times.  The problem is, it is
CPUINFO, not Powe Monitor 1.2.0.....

Like I said, I downloaded and actually installed it. It is, in fact, AMD
Power Monitor 1.2.0 and it's running in my systray right now. So what's
going on with your d/l I don't get.

Ok.  I don't get it, but you are on!

Either email, or, what might be more convenient (how big is it??) make
yourself a MediaFire account, upload, and post the link (or email it,
if you'd rather.)

MediaFire is pert near awesome!

It's 8.6Mb. I don't have a MediaFire account. Want it emailed?

Well, sure.  Let's see how it compares to what Paul posted.

Mediafire is free.  It's pretty amazing.  I routinely post large files
there for friends and customers.  It used to be there was no limit to
the file size; now they cap it at 100K, probably because some dick
weed wrote a program to fill up their hard drives.  You can use RAR or
what-ever to package stuff, though.  I sent my daughter the Ultimate
Boot CD via MediaFire.  Lots faster than USPS.

And, if you don't know what UBCD is, Czech out their site
http://www.ubcd4win.com /

Download my build here (it's standard.)  http://www.mediafire.com/?5e11kvm6roj

I've not used MediaFire to share a group of files before, so if you
don't get access to the rest of the RAR packages, here are the other
two links:

I tried downloading the link. The link shows "setup.exe" as the file name.
Size was 8,847,360 bytes. Inside, with a hex editor, I see CPUInfo. I
didn't try to install it.

This is the bad one (actually CPUInfo)
http://www.amd.com/us-en/assets/content_type/utilities/setup.exe

Now, try this one out. 8,589,824 bytes. This appears to be more appropriately
named for a Power Monitor setup.

Thanks.  Got it.  How did you navigate to the above page?  I went in
through Opteron, I guess if I hadn't had a Martini I would have tried
a different angle.

I used web.archive.org, to see how the file used to be named. Then
I went back to the AMD site and tried "powersetup.exe" as an alternative
and it worked. The above link isn't actually on the download web page,
but the file is on the web server so it works. AMD needs to fix their page.

Hi, I am not sure what you are expecting from that download but
I think it is pretty mcuh a waste of time, windows task manager
shows you the CPU usage and the other stuff CPU freq and
voltage, well they are pretty much fixed, well you would not want
to monitor them, these are things you set  (if possible), 'monitoring them'
will
be akin to watching paint dry, without the fun :O)

What  you might find useful is this
http://www.hmonitor.net /
Which allows you to monitor the temperature of your CPU, which
is much more interesting (relatively) and useful. I had real trouble
finding something to monitor the temperature but this appears to
work, mine has not yet dropped below 42C.
I found a site which said normal rest range is 35C - 45C which
makes mine seem a little 'hot'.
But I think I read else where that this was pretty normal.
I did get it up to 60C at one point. After several minutes on full load
I heard the fan kick in. Temp stayed at 60 though!! Is that normal??
Actually I noticed that the burn in utility "hot potato" lol nice name, had
finished its 7 minute run at that time.
Mind you it is still saying 60%C
Weird!!
Well I just restarted hmonitor and it says 45C now.

Mine is a 64bit Sempron 3000+ at 1.8GHz and 1.4V according
to AMD power monitor.

I saw one place which said it's Sempron was 28C idle which i find
hard to believe (too low) but that was a earlier model IIRC, an Athlon
at 1.5GHz so maybe it was correct, but 28C is not much above room
temperature so I am suspicous.
I am at 44C now oops 42, 43 42. Maybe that burst of the fan blew away a few
cobwebs :O)

Not sure if I can overclock mine and not really into it anyway, I would not
notice
a 10% increase in speed really, and I like my PC to be quiet!!
Silence is golden :O)




http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/sempron-3100-oc_6.html
"We'd like to note that working at its nominal frequency and voltage (1.8GHz
and 1.5V) the Sempron 3100+ was 47C hot in the idle mode and up to 60C hot
under load in our system."
