    I have seen around that you can monitor your macs temps
    using istat pro and an iPhone app. I recently asked in a thread the best way of monitoring temps while in a full screen and am wondering if there is any way to stream the temps over to the iPhone from my PC (just like istat would for the mac). Thanks

    The simplest way to do it yourself would be to write a web app, host it on the machine you want to monitor and open the page using Safari on the iPhone. I don't know of any native iPhone apps to do it.

    That's what I would do anyway. Or just buy a second monitor...

    The only pc program I know like this is the RC Tweakit that comes with the Rampage III mobo and it's bluetooth module. Apart from that it'll probably have to be a home job.

    P.s. I'm sure afew ppl would be interested :)

    Unsurprisingly the web aspect is pretty straightforward. It's getting the temperature data that's going to be the bugger. I might have a play and see if I can knock something up. Reckon the best way would be to use Speedfan to get the data (like some Sidebar gadgets do), but it's integrating with that which is awkward as there don't seem to be any guides. Ho Hum.
