Download: Core Temp 0.99.1 - Support for C2D E5x00, Nehalem, Griffin
An overheated CPU doesn't just cause crashes or - because of automatic clock reduction - less performance, but it also shortens the lifetime of the processor. Especially when overclocking, you should always have an eye on the temperatures of the CPU cores. The free tool Core Temp is a great support there.
DThe small program can be run without an installation and sticks to the essential things: the temperature of all CPU cores. Core Temp reads the data directly from the register of the processor, which checks who far away the current temperature is from the maximal limit that causes the CPU to lower the clock speed by itself. From this the application calculates the current temperature. Unfortunately the result cannot be verified but it is the best result that can be received with software. Additionally Core Temp delivers details about the installed CPU, like the clock speed or the core voltage.
