Dual Core Temperature Monitor

  Aaron-188486 12:33 17 Jan 2008


I'm running a Vista Premium Home Dual Core Acer Aspire L100 and I'd like to monitor the temperature of the CPU and Hard drive. I've tried HDDLife but that advises me I have no S.M.A.R.T. so it can't monitor, whatever that is! Can anyone recommend a good program that can do this?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Santos7,

I've heard about this one. But there were some concerns over it's workings as it's not open source so hasn't been updated for a number of years.

Are you using yours on a vista machine?

NO XP home, but i compare values with other sources and they are similar....

if you go to the intel site you can download TAT which shows the temperature of each core.

Both excellent suggestions, I'll give em a try. Howard64 would TAT work on my AMD chips?

one to use is CoreTemp: click here

It actually gives the temp as measured by the CPU rather than the motherboard, not unlike TAT. It's used by a good number of the overclocking community for its accuracy.
