System Monitor II icon A useful sidebar gadget that enables you to monitor the health of your computer by keeping an eye on the CPU and the memory usage

System Monitor II is a very useful gadget that provides a quick overview about your system, providing a bunch of useful details directly on the desktop.

Since it's a gadget, System Monitor II can only be accessed from the desktop, but even so, it provides vital information in a much more appealing way than many other standalone utilities.

The memory usage at a glance

System Monitor II displays memory usage, but also the used, free and total amount of memory, with detailed statistics shown right in the main window. Additionally, it displays CPU model and speed, overall and per core usage, alongside a professional-looking graph to help you keep an eye on the way the system works.

Rich set of configuration settings

What's more impressive is the configuration screen that includes tons of options for a Windows gadget. Besides the fact that you can customize interface options such as colors, background and graph details, System Monitor II allows you to specify the CPU you wish to monitor, the refresh rate, the core temperatures and the memory options.

Graphs can be configured as well, with multiple built-in options, so you may have to spend a while setting up both the appearance, as well as the other features of the widget.

A valuable system information tool

Of course, because it's a widget, the footprint on hardware resources is minimal; it works exclusively on Windows Vista and 7, since they're the only ones boasting a sidebar. With additional software installed to re-enable the sidebar, the gadget can also be used in more recent versions of Windows.

Overall, System Monitor II is undoubtedly a must have gadget and thanks to its rich features, it's much more useful than many stand-alone system information tools. It enables you to closely monitor the CPU usage, check the uptime of the PC, as well as other additional indicators helpful to any computer user.
