Windows 10: Need CPU Temperature?
Surprised no one mentioned Open Hardware Monitor, it's the only program I need for real-time temp measurements (I have the gadget enabled at startup).
Temps in BIOS don't mean much as it's in idle than. AMD systems are notoriously bad at showing idle temps accurately , only under the load and when temps approach max it starts showing more accurate. With AMD systems, it's better to use program like AOD that shows Temperature margin, when it drops under 10c it means it's about to throttle down. About 20c would correspond to 55c at core temp.
Thanks for the heads up ,just tried it my kind of app for all that
Thanks I just tried it .....Way cool I like it

If you just want CPU info both CoreTemp1.2 and RealTemp 370 work well
OHW hasn't been update in 18 months or more , but I think it sees most Modern Hardware well
HWInfo64 is update Regularly , with new MB's and sensor support added etc , eg the new X99 line from Asus, lots of info and options given though.
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...
