"Core Temp" - monitor temps on K8s and Core/2 CPUs (updated

Recommended Posts

Just letting you know the coolest,that my newest virus definitions now report Core-temp as a virus. I'm sure it's not (But it's a little annoying to hear the virus alarm every time I try to use the program).

 

At first I decided the A/V didn't like the way the cpu registers where being read directly, but A64info-beta doesn't trigger an alarm (or anything else that reads core-temps...)

 

EDIT/ Looks like they updated again, and it's no longer detected as a virus...

Heh, that's kind of funny. Well, happy they came to their senses. Not just us the little guys make mistakes.

I've downloaded the app fine here and all seems to be working.

 

The temp for Core 0 is reading a couple of degrees above speedfans attempt, which is exactly what I was hoping would happen, as that would make the most sense.

 

Core 1 is about 5-7 degrees higher, I've written an app to set all processes to either core, and this doesn't change the deficit at all.

 

I'm fairly confident that Core 1 is the core that fails me first on P95, so it would be interesting to make some predictions with your app and test them with P95. I won't be doing this right now, as I'm in the middle of another app, but it would be interesting if the two were related.

 

I've browsed your site, can I just second the request for offering the functions to external apps, I think you mentioned it would be appearing in a near release. If you produced a dll that could return the CPU temperature, you'd be famous lol, the amount of requests on forums for "dll to read CPU temp" etc...

 

Either way, thanks for the time you've invested in this. I've been trying to find any info on reading CPU register values to try to mimic your results, but no luck whatsoever!:rolleyes:

Anyone know for sure if core temp is a stand alone temp reading. meaning is the temps reading come from CPU or does it pass though other sensors on the board

I think CoreTemp is a great small applet, really. Sure MBM exists, as well as others, but it requires you to know your mobo and to download data files.

 

I just DLed and found it useful for my laptop.
