I love to fiddle around with my computer, overclocking, adjusting fan speeds, viewing system information, etc.
I have not found a good alternative for the following programs:
CPUz (sysinfo isn't as powerful?)
Orthos
RealTemp*

Basically, I want to open my system up to more hardware tweaking.
Got any programs for me? :'(

* Compared to Windows, lmsensors / hddtemp don't feel like there accurately reporting CPU temperature, in Windows it goes between 30 - 50 C, while in Linux it seems to stay around 30 - 32 C.

"replacement" is a bad term, "alternative" is a better one.

Hmm..
I'm not a very good python programming, but I'm learning.
Wonder if I could make similar applications...:-k

Anyone that knows Python / Glade want to help teach me? :)
