Windows 10: Need CPU Temperature?
Speccy is a good general system information utility - it reports more that just Temps
The other utilities mentioned are also very good - some monitor and create a log.
Speccy - Builds Two versions: Full install & Portable
Thanks.. this is going to come in handy.
I tried speed fan and it did not run,it redirected me on line and i downloaded from there and what i got a bunch a crap that i had hard time to uninstall,so much so i had to do a clean install of Win 10 TP,
also this one that downloaded a bunch of stuff and did not run, it kept re installing and never could run it.
HWiNFO, HWiNFO32 HWiNFO64 - Hardware Information, Analysis and Monitoring Tools
I find realtemp the best and most accurate. I use Hwinfo64 when testing an overclock, but realtemp any other occasion. It also will give you statistics on c-states, power usage, VID and GPU temp.:
I have Speccy, and I am happy with it, but is there a widget that you can keep on your desktop to always monitor the temp?
Thanks.. I'll check this out.
I use HWiNFO64. It's a good program.
I'll try that as well.. thanks. OH,, I have that installed and it is rather good.
Realtemp can put it in your taskbar. You can put it in your start folder and have it come up minimized.
Also there is the coretemp windows 7 sidebar gadget that display cpu temp and load as well as clock speed, vid and ram usage. It can also display it in the taskbar (with and without the gadget).

I am having strange problems with my desktop & laptop with W10 10240 installed.
I have a Toshiba Portege ultrabook with i5 2520m cpu, which usually ran at high temperatures under W8.1 consuming up to 55W. Now the temperature won't go above...
On normal, it stays on 60-70, maybe 80 sometimes, but as soon as I start something that's graphics related, it kicks up to 90s. The fan really starts to kick in when about 93 degrees are reached, but it doesn't go down unless I stop the graphics...
