Core Temp 1.18 Download | TechSpot

What makes Core Temp unique is the way it works. It is capable of displaying a temperature of each individual core of each processor in your system. You can see real-time temperature fluctuations with different workloads. Core Temp is also motherboard independent. Core Temp makes it easy for you to control the temperature of any modern x86-based processor. The program is compatible with processors from all three major manufacturers; Intel, AMD and VIA.

What processors does Core Temp support?

Core Temp is compatible with most modern processors from Intel, AMD, and VIA. All Intel Core, Atom, Celeron, Pentium and Xeon series. AMD Ryzen, Epyc, FX, APU, Athlon, Turion, Sempron and Opteron as well. VIA Nano and C7 series.

How does Core Temp work?

Core Temp reads information directly from the DTS or digital thermal sensor on each core, allowing for virtually no lag and very accurate readings.

What makes Core Temp stand out?

Core Temp’s ability to display every core temperature within the processor package is what sets this program apart from other system monitoring and information applications.

Core Temp also provides a platform for plugins, which allows developers to add new features and extend their functionality. You can find our plug-ins and add-ons here. If you are a developer and are interested in creating your own addition, check out the developer’s page.

Intel processors from the “Core” series to the new Core i7, including all derivatives. AMD processors starting from the first series of Athlon64 and Opteron processors, all new APUs from Phenom and AMD are supported. VIA processors from the C7 generation of CPUs, including all derivatives based on the C7 architecture. All Nano-based processors are also supported.

Temperature readings are very accurate, as data is collected directly from a digital thermal sensor (or DTS) located in each individual processing core*, near the hottest part. This sensor is digital, meaning it doesn’t rely on an external circuit located on the motherboard to report temperature, its value is stored in a special register on the processor so the software can access and read it. This eliminates any inaccuracies that can be introduced by the external circuits and sensors of the motherboard.
