accessing motherboard sensors via labview...

Recommended Posts

Hi Paul,

I've not actually done this in LabVIEW. But I use something called Core Temp to monitor temps on my laptop.

There's a few add-ons here: http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/addons.html

One of the add-ons is open source. So there may be a way to use some of that code with LabVIEW.

Hi All,

Does anyone know if it's possible to access motherboard temperature sensors using labview, and if so, how?!

(For info, this is a kind of cross post with NI.com here: http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Is-it-possible-to-access-motherboard-s-built-in-temperature/m-p/1662280/highlight/false#M594131)

Thanks for the info.

Unfortunately, coretemp only appears to return the CPU core temperatures. I'm really after ambient board temperature (that I can get from speedfan for example, but can't see how to get into labview).

Any other thoughts?

I'm sure there is a DLL call you can use but a simply hacky way of doing it is if SpeedFan supports logging the temperature. I know CPUtemp can be configured to log to a CSV file every minute or so. If SpeedFan supports this you could then re open that log in LabVIEW.
