Best temperature monitor for this mobo/am2 CPUs

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any suggestions on the best temperature monitor to use with the sensors on this mobo? I'd like to be able to check the actual temperature of my cores as well rather than a sensor on the motherboard.

I use CoreTemp to monitor cpu temps. Mainly because it tends to show the highest temps of most of the other programs I've used. If coretemp is showing good temp's, then I know all is well.

 

Also I think coretemp measures straight off the die. I'm not exactly sure but someone else here may be able to tell you.

 

SmartGuardian is also pretty good. I guess it deosn't hurt to compare results from a few different ones (Speedfan included) just to get a good idea of the differences..

But what's the go with MBM and this motherboard. I thought they weren't compatible because I was getting problems whenever I tried to run the program.

you should try using the search button as there's a HUGE thread about mbm5 in the Software section...

Another soft would be speedfan, click HERE to download. It works fine for me and with this you can control the fan speeds.

In this version, the 4.31 it reads the temp directly from the CPU built-in senzor, so I suppose it's quite accurate.

I am using CoreTemp and SmartGuardian. On Coretemp I am getting Core0 at 35Cel and Core1 at 30Cel. SmartGuardian reads CPU at 48Cel.. Big difference. The unusual thing is that the Bios temps for CPU and Chipset is very close to SmartGuardians readouts.
