Good program to list CPU temperature?





jay84h
Would anyone know of a nice program that would list your CPU's temperature?

Try Speedfan: http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php

It monitors all temperature sensors in your hardware, including CPU and S.M.A.R.T. You can analyze the results online.

Note:

First of all, you have to identify which temperature sensor is which. SpeedFan strictly adheres to available datasheets for each sensor chip. Please remember that hardware monitors are chips that do have some pins (small connectors) which should be connected to some additional hardware (temperature probes, thermistors or thermocouples) in order to be able to read temperatures. Only a few hardware monitor chips do label their connectors with "CPU", "System" and the like. Most of them use labels like "Temp1", "Local" or "Remote".

Thanks, I jus' tested it out, it seems pretty nice. I did try out Motherboard Monitor but you had to manually enter your motherboard, and mine was not listed. So I downloaded this and it automatically detected it. Showing 40 degrees for the temp and 39 for the core.

Does SpeedFan test the temp of the processor or is that the temp of the processor?

I think it just reads out the temperature sensors in your hardware, but I don't know how it works exactly. I only used it for SMART.

I have used speedfan quite a lot when I was on an AMD machine and also with a Sony Vaio. Speedfan is good. Use it.

yeah jay84h introduced me to speedfan and I find that it is quite nice and lists the temperatures very well, now I know where he got it. lol

Oh and so that you all know the program has to use the hardware sensors already there on the hardware and then it reads and processed the information, then it outputs the information in the program for you to see.

If you are looking for a program that has smart you can try this one also. It is called hddhealth http://www.snapfiles.com/get/hddhealth.html

You can download it at the above link or u can just search for it and download it from a site you trust.

I find it very good provides alot of information on your hdd and it will even do an indepth analysis to give you an estimate on the date that the hdd may fail, it is only an estimate though!!!

If you want give it a try it is a quite application and provides alot of information

Try PC Wizard by CPUID at http://www.cpuid.com/pcwizard.php. It gives a very detailed analysis of your computer, and also shows the temperatures.

You could also give a look at Asus PC Probe. It's almost very light, easy to use and can also warn you if the temperature arises too much.

It monitorizes even the fans' speed! Get it from http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Info/ASUS-PC-Probe.shtml

F*** it, use CoreTemp: http://www.thecoolest.zerobrains.com/CoreTemp/
