Core Temp - Temperature Monitor

Core Temp is a free portable program that can be used to accurately monitor CPU core temperatures of the processors in a computer system. It displays the temperatures of each independent processor core, in real time. This portable utility receives temperature readings via the DTS Digital Thermal Sensor (built into most modern processors), offering more efficient temperature readings.

Additional options include overheat protection, and detailed processor/core related information, and much more. It is important to note that this tool only provides core temperature monitoring features. Unlike tools such as HWinfo that provide advanced hardware information regarding several other devices as well.

Core Temp Processor Temperature Monitoring Features

  • Real Time CPU Temperature Monitoring: Displays the real time temperature of each CPU core. It provides accurate readings of the current temperature as well as the maximum and minimum temperatures reached.
  • Monitor CPU Temps from System Tray: View Processor temperature from the system tray, allowing you to quickly check your CPU temperatures without having to open the application.
  • Customizable: You can customize the way temperature information is displayed, including choosing between Celsius and Fahrenheit, and selecting from various color options.
  • Temperature Graphing: CoreTemp can graphically display the temperature history of each CPU core over time via an addon plugin or gadget. This feature is useful for monitoring temperature trends and identifying potential overheating issues.
  • Processor Information: The software also provides more detailed information about your CPU, including its model, frequency, architecture, and more.
  • Temperature Alerts and Overheating Protection: The utility can be set up to trigger alerts when your CPU temperatures exceed a threshold. This can help you take action to prevent overheating and potential damage to your CPU.
  • Single and Multi Core Support: It is capable of monitoring modern CPUs with multiple cores and threads, making it suitable for both single core and multi core processors.
  • Plugins Addons: Includes plugin support for adding additional functionality to the cpu temperature monitoring software.
  • Low Resource Usage: It is designed to be lightweight and efficient, consuming minimal system resources while running in the background.
  • Exportable Log Files: Processor temperature data can be exported to a file, allowing you to review historical temperature information and diagnose any issues.
