    Default CPU Temp monitor

    Is there a good gadget for me to monitor my CPU temp? I have a huge overheating problem, and as I tinker with devices, settings and such, I need a good way to know if anything is working.

    I am running an amd proc with windows 7 64bit.

    I use CoreTemp (http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/). It's simple, lightweight, and displays the temperature in your system tray.

    little time he had in life to read so much, to learn what he had to know.”

    Speedfan is good, but if your fans arent plugged directly into the motherboard it doesnt read their rpm. So don't freak out if some of your fans read as not working.

    How old is your machine? The thermal paste that is between the CPU and the heat sink only lasts 3 to 5 years. If you have an older machine, it should be replaced.

    Also, if your graphics card has a heat sink and/or fan, its thermal paste should be replaced at the same time.

    I was partial to this: http://openhardwaremonitor.org/ during the most recent and thankfully over period when I had to use windows for anything (I can't stand normal mice so I use a ps3 controller and software to map it as a mouse+several keyboard buttons and the linux version I was using broke and wouldn't work a while until antimicro got fixed thankfully), I like how the open hardware monitor had an option for a tweakable gadget size and a better range of sensor access than the others I had tried up until then for windows.

    Engraved here is a rendition of an image of the Dwarf Fortress learning curve. All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. It depicts an obsidian overhang which menaces with spikes of obsidian and tears. Carved on the overhang is an image of Toady One and the players. The players are curled up in a fetal position. Toady One is laughing. The players are burning.
