HP CoolSense (for Windows) uses sensors and real-time data to monitor your HP notebook’s software and hardware so that it can control and prevent overheating from damaging the computer or causing discomfort to the user. This software only works on Hewlett Packard notebooks with CoolSense Technology.

Features:

  • Allows HP notebooks to take advantage of built-in CoolSense Technology
  • Real-time sensor monitoring
  • Dynamic, real-time fan control
  • Optimizes performance, energy usage, and battery life
  • Protects hardware from overheating
  • Adjusts power and performance settings for user comfort
  • Detects if the laptop is on a lap or hard surface

HP CoolSense is the software side of Hewlett Packard’s CoolSense Technology, a design philosophy that attempts to maximize system performance through architecture design. Laptops with CoolSense Technology were designed to monitor, direct and dissipate heat with the use of sensors, strategic positioning of components, vents and fans, and the use of an aluminum body. By coordinating hardware, software, and mechanical design, Hewlett Packard was able to dynamically manage the temperature of its laptop computers to protect them from overheating and to give the user a more comfortable experience.

The HP CoolSense software is what monitors and manages these hardware components of the CoolSense Technology strategy. CoolSense’s main goal is to protect your system's hardware from damage due to overheating, but that isn’t all it does. CoolSense can also detect if you have your laptop on your lap or on a hard surface, and it will adjust cooling and performance accordingly to keep you comfortable.

Using CoolSense is easy, just set it up once and forget about it. Or. you can tailor the custom settings to your current needs:  maximum cooling, quiet mode, or performance optimization. With CoolSense, you have the power to balance performance, comfort, and protection. (When CoolSense is set to maximum cooling, Turbo Boost mode is not available.)

HP CoolSense can detect if your laptop is on your lap or not and control your systems fan speed to keep your computer from overheating or being uncomfortable.

Having lost a computer to overheating before, I am quite paranoid about any of my electronics overheating now. Coolsense is a neat product that is designed to help prevent that. It protects your hardware from overheating and also keeps you comfortable when using (especially if you are a person who likes to hold their laptop on their lap!). Coolsense manages everything for you without you having to worry about it, however, you can set custom settings like quiet mode or best performance.

This is absolutely amazing, I'm so surprised that its free and available for any Windows computer. This makes fan optimization as well as comfort ability at a maximum while using your computer or laptop. If you own Windows computer you should install this software.

HP CoolSense for Windows is an incredibly innovative software that runs on the Windows platform. This software program is amazingly useful in its efforts to keep your HP Notebooks cool and safe. There is a sensor that will feel for heat inside of the Notebook and if so, it will increase fan speed so as to keep the device cool. This software is smart and savvy and I highly recommend utilizing CoolSense to protect your Notebook from overheating and possibly harming it. What I really like about this software is that when the HP CoolSense is on, there is an icon that looks like a snowflake on a blue background to let you know that it's running. When the software is off, there is an icon that turns black with a snowflake in the foreground. The only thing that I am not too keen on is that the technology doesn't go beyond the regular default settings set forth when you purchase your device, aka factory default settings. Otherwise, as I have stated prior: This software technology is still quite innovative and intelligent for what is meant to be used for. I encourage a download of this software so that you can protect your device from overheating and getting destroyed.

HP CoolSense for Windows helps cool off my HP laptop while I am working. It keeps it from overheating and it's comfortable to use. I downloaded and installed it and every since I haven't had any issues with my laptop getting too hot. Overheating used to be an issue for my system. This software took care of that problem. I can use my laptop now and not worry about damaging it.

IT WILL AUTOMATICALLY ADJUST THE COMPUTER PERFORMANCE AND SPEED OF THE FAN TO KEEP YOUR COMPUTER COOL. YOU CAN ALSO MODIFY THE COOLING PREFERENCE SETTINGS OF YOUR COMPUTER.

HP CoolSense for Windows seems like a great original concept. It seems like this program is easy to run, simple to install, and reliable. I especially like the logo and the icon; the images are appealing. The feedback I would give is to create some different versions because of technical matching. I was checking and it seems that not every machine is able to run HP cool sense, and maybe that can be fixed. Other than that, it is reliable and modern software that people should definitely consider downloading when they get a chance.
