Generally, what you can monitor depends on the information your hardware provides. If your hardware, for example, would provide temperature information via SNMP, you could set up a sensor in PRTG for that.

The standard WMI sensors for Windows systems, however, provide CPU processor time, queue length, privileged time and user time; but no temperature information.
