This software is not stealth, it creates CrystalDiskMark30.ini in the user's folder.

it's a nice idea but i've heard people say that benchmarks like this are worthless because disk caching. unless the temp files are bigger than the caches, the results are bogus.

Just tested it and it seems to be writing the settings file to the app folder correctly at this point. I think you can change this to stealth now.

The plethora of information to display including Fan speeds, CPU, HDD, and MOBO temps in the notification tray makes this thing perfect for me. I let Process Explorer handle the memory/cpu/network/etc usage and let this thing display cpu/mobo/etc temps and I get a wealth of information in one area. It doesn't use too much resources either. Highly recommended.

@Ateka: The most important part -- The driver is installed when you run and it is removed after you close it. The HKCU key is settings and not important. It's not stealth, it requires admin rights but it IS portable.

yoi.. that test this software.

You need to start this by "run as administator" in order to see all the drives. You can set that property in the shortcut properties if you wish.
