Core Temp is a compact, no fuss, small footprint, yet powerful program to monitor CPU temperature on Windows PC.
Core Temp application displays the current / real-time PC temperature of each individual core of every processor in your system.
This tool gathers data using “Digital Thermal Sensors” which all modern CPUs have on them.
Core Temp utilizes DTS and displays accurate CPU temperature readings than conventional onboard thermal sensors.
Download Core Temp 1.17.1 latest version for Windows PC. This temperature monitoring tool supports both 32bit – 64bit versions of Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, 2003 Server, 2008 Server, 2012 Server, 2016 Server.
Core Temp user friendly interface helps users to easily get vital temperature information of your CPU in a symmetrical view.
If you have more than one processor installed on 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.
This 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, a PC pops up a notification asking you to take the necessary measures.
The application overheating protection also allows you to set a timer after which your PC will either go to sleep, hibernate, or shutdown itself.
With most of the positive things, it doesn’t monitor GPU temperature. In case you wants to keep an eye on both CPU & GPU Temperature then you should consider installing MSI Afterburner, AI Suite 3, GPU- Z 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 free alternatives can be as good and may displays more system information about your computer.
Is Core Temp accurate?
Yes, Core Temp is 100% accurate as already explained this tool directly reads the thermal signatures using digital thermal sensors probe inside the CPU core itself.
What is TJ Max CPU?
Thermal junction maximum (TJ Max) is the highest temperature limit that Intel CPU can attain.
Once they reach a high CPU temperature limit they start throttling. At this point, the CPU uses less electricity so to prevent overheating.
What does core temp do?
The Windows PC tends to overheat when you play games for long hours. That’s why you need to regularly monitor and check your PC’s CPU temperature.
The utility helps users to monitor normal and maximum CPU temperatures in real-time – and allows us to take necessary actions to prevent hardware failure.
