The final version of Thaiphoon Burner 4.1 has been released! The new version compared to the previous final one features a new advanced SMBus engine to work with SMBus controller of all Intel ICHx I/O controller hubs. We created this engine to be universal. Therefore, it is compatible with VIA VT82xx southbridges and with all ATI IXP peripheral controllers, such as SB700, SB600, SB460, SB450 and other old ATI southbridges. Besides, Thaiphoon Burner 4.1 creates a new enhanced HTML report for SPD DDR2 SDRAM, which provides more detailed information specific for DDR2 SDRAM standard. According to the latest documentation for SPD revision 1.2 Thaiphoon Burner now reports about all thermal parameters of SDRAM components used for the memory module. The most useful parameter from them is TCaseMax which represent the maximum case temperature of SDRAM components. Check your TCaseMax with Thaiphoon Burner 4.1!

Today we confirm the Central Brain Identifier project is at its final stage of developing. This means CBId utility will no longer be developed and will not support the latest AMD Family 10h processors. CBId has almost accomplished his mission and soon it will be just a history. Why the Central Brain Identifier is closing read in the Russian news blog. Nonetheless, the latest CBId 8.36 Release 3 includes some new key features. So, now it’s possible to select two additional HT-multipliers for the HyperTransport Bus. They are 1.5 (300 MHz) and 2.5 (500 MHz). Also, CBId is capable of rising the RAM frequency up to 216 MHz, 233 MHz and 250 MHz by using three new CPU/RAM divisors. The last feature is specific for the DDR SDRAM type of the memory only. Enjoy!

The updated version of Central Brain Identifier 8.36 has been released! As you probably know we position it not only as the best identification application for AMD processors, but also as a tool that offers a set of unique tweaks specific for them. So, the new version is now capable of determining of the TDP parameter for any desktop and mobile AMD64 NPT Family processor. We do not need to update an external TDP database further, the DTP is now extracted from the processor directly! Besides, CBId now computes a current thermal power dissipating by the NPT Family processor using an official formula based on recommendations from AMD. The 64-bit kernel driver has an improvement that enables you to manipulate with feature-bits of the processor in 64-bit Windows. Also, CBId now completely identifies the AMD Athlon 64 X2 125W class processor. Please, check our screenshot gallery to see screenshots for ADX6000IAA6CZ processor.

During a couple of weeks we were working at the new version of NextSensor. And today we would like to present you the final result of our intensive activity. It is NextSensor 2.72! The most significant improvement of the new version is an automatic tweaking for the Fan Tachometer Divisor. This enables NextSensor to measure a fan speed with a high precision when using the ITE IT8716F and IT8718F Super I/O chips. The latest NextSensor now provides an ability to report a GPU temperature through the forth icon in the Tray Bar. Also, there are three new completely tested automatic profiles designed for the Gigabyte GA-M55plus-S3G, Biostar TForce 7050-M2 and Biostar TF560 A2+ motherboards. The WebReport engine has been improved and optimized in accordance with a new color scheme of the latest NextSensor’s GUI. Minor bug fixes in the graphic design of NextSensor were made as well. More news read at AMDClub.ru. Have fun with NS!

Please note that some small numerous anti-virus packages, e.g. AVG Antivirus, can falsely indicate a problem around NextSensor of all versions. We inform you that our software is 100% clean and doesn’t contain any destructive code! We suggest you to free from such extremely "intelligent" antiviruses and to use anti-virus software of well-known companies only, for example from Doctor Web Co.Ltd.

NextSensor 2.60 R1 has been released! The latest version gives a user the capability to control a CPU fan speed through Winbond super I/O chips. The fan speed control method in NextSensor is called by Express-FAN and is based on Winbond’s SmartFAN III technique. The XP-FAN works in automatic mode and controls the CPU fan speed depending on CPU temperature. You can adjust all the parameters of the XP-FAN, such as target temperature, temperature tolerance, etc to keep a CPU fan in a quiet mode. Despite the Express-FAN is completely optimized to Winbond W83627EHF chip, it is compatible with W83627THF chip model too. Besides, as you remember, the main lack of previous version was inability to measure the fan speed in some case by using ITE chip. Now NextSensor 2.60 is capable of adjusting fan speed divisors in order to report the correct fun speed by using both ITE and Winbond I/O chips. This is achieved due to our absolutely new well-tested calculations.

05/20/2007
The new version of NextSensor 2.54 has been released. New models of hard drives from Hitachi, Maxtor, Western Digital and Seagate have been supported. Now you can use a float hint of the HDD temperature icon in the Tray Bar to check a model and a family of your new hard disk drive. Also, we have added a media type check for the storage device in order to prevent a false HDD icon creation. There has been a minor improvement for the automatic profile selection if the ITE IT8718F chip has been detected. Have fun!

Thaiphoon Burner 3.20 Final

05/06/2007
The final version of Thaiphoon Burner 3.20 has been released! We are very proud of our project indeed. It is ideal software offering the unique features and benefits that people have come to expect. There is no tool similar to Thaiphoon Burner that could combine a powerful functionality with simplicity. So, the final release features two new significant additions known for previous versions as Timing Table Editor and Profile Enhancer. The first applet lets to edit the timing table of the RAM stick rapidly. It is designed for beginners, who need to change RAM timings without the use of any technical documents. The main task of the second applet is to transform an ordinary DDR2 RAM stick into EPP-compliant. The Profile Enhancer gives you the greatest opportunity to enhance your ordinary memory modules with nVidia EPP profiles! Besides, you can add, remove and edit EPP profiles without any obstacles! The final version of Thaiphoon Burner recognizes 130 new manufacturer’s identification codes. The total number of ID codes is 765! Enjoy!

Coretemeter 1.0 beta 4 has been released! Both for single and dual core AMD64 processors there is a new feature that allows Coretemeter to construct a temperature graph using the readings of external hardware monitor also known as Super I/O chip. This logical addition easily transforms Coretemeter into the simple and handy temperature comparator. Now you can examine how far the reading of hardware monitor differ from the readings of processor’s on-die thermal diode. Currently, Coretemeter work with all LPC chips supported in NextSensor. Besides, Cortemeter can save snapshots of each complete time scene. Enjoy!

Today we would like to present you our new piece of software. It is Coretemeter. The following is a brief description for it. Coretemeter is a small and handy tool designed to construct the graph of the core temperature of the AMD64 processors using the readings of on-die CPU thermal sensor. The utility supports drawing the core temperature for each core of a dual-core processor. There is an option to set a rate of reading the temperature. You can select 1, 2 or 6 times per second for the rate. Besides, Coretemeter calculates an average value of the temperature for each time period of monitoring. Also, you can define a priority of reading the temperature. During stress load on the CPU this allocates more time to the utility to construct the graph. The utility is very simple to use.
