Monitor Individual Core Temps

It is fully capable of displaying the CPU temperature of each individual core of every processor in your system. Users can see hardware temperature fluctuation in real-time with varying workloads in different colors.

The program gathers data via "Digital Thermal Sensors" which are placed on all modern CPUs. This tool utilizes DTS and displays accurate CPU temperature reading than conventional onboard thermal sensors.

Classic interface

Right off the bat, when you install core temp on your PC, you'll experience that it has a user-friendly interface. You can easily get vital temp information of your CPU in a small Window displaying all information in a symmetrical view.

If you have more than one processor installed in your system, then you can choose which processor you want to monitor. At a glance, you can see Core, threads, CPU model, and frequency, power in wattage, and TJ.Max values.

Protects PC from overheating

This tool has built-in overheating protection that prevents your PC from overheating. Core temp offers you to enable overheat protection in three ways.

  • Choose the automatic mode, that quickly notifies when a critical temperature is reached.
  • Set specific CPU temperature manually, which will automatically activate overheating protection and shuts down your PC for a while.
  • Activate If TJ.Max is reached (5 degrees below). When your system reaches that temperature, PC pops up a notification asking you to take the necessary measures.
  • Core temp overheating protection also allows you to set a timer after which your PC will either go to sleep, hibernate or shutdown itself.

Limitation

The only drawback of using this program is that it doesn’t monitor GPU temperature. If you want to keep an eye on both CPU & GPU Temperature, then MSI AfterburnerAI Suite 3, GPU- Z are considered to be the most comprehensive PC temperature monitoring tools.

Core Temp Alternatives

If core temp doesn't suit your taste, then you can try other free CPU Temperature Monitoring tools i.e. HWMonitor, Real Temp, HWinfo, AIDA64, and Open Hardware Monitor. These alternatives display more system information about your computer.
