I'm building a simple utility that monitors CPU/GPU heat on Windows Systems.  Given that there are heat issues running Vista Glass Aero on Toshiba Tecra models (I'm using an M5) I wanted a simple System Tray utility that would monitor it and show status and temperature.  Eventually I'll add some alerting, but just needed something quick.

One feature that I added is showing the historical temperature in a graph.  I was writing something to convert the array of decimals into a line graph until I found NPlot.

NPlot is a small (160K) assembly that provides very nice Charting Capabilities.  It supports .NET 2.0, 1.1 and even mono (in fact it's built on Mono first).

The heat issues that have been noted are impacting older systems to the point that it's burning out the GPU and ultimately requires a replacement motherboard in Tecra systems (M3, M4, M5, M7 models all seem impacted).
