    Hi,
    HWMonitor will not show each core temperature on your taskbar which makes it far easier to see them :)

    They should all report exactly the same but some programs apply different offsets to the figure reported by the sensors I believe. I use TPFanControl to set fan speed on my ThinkPad and in that you can manually define the offset for the various sensors to get the actual temperature. I adjusted them to match HWiNFO.I find HWiNFO the most accurate and comprehensive (it shows more sensors than Aida64 or HWMonitor).Speccy for some reason seems to indicate overly high CPU temps - they are either misnaming a sensor or applying wrong offset. It might (probably does) depend on your system though. If you try a few and one is out by 5 or 10 compared to the others you should probably ignore it.
    OK I Will HWinfo a shot

    I use 8GadgetPack and Core Temp to keep a readout on my PCs at all times. Compact, lightweight memory and resource footprint. Works like a charm. Looks like this:

    PLMK if you need pointers on where to find this stuff, how to configure & install, etc. Don't want to bother you if you aren't interested. I'm good, either way!

    I use the same as Ed does and have used it for many years. It will show the CPU activity at all times and will use Core Temp for temps. Core temp can show all core temps in the sys tray , only the hottest core or nothing, depending on how it is set. Yes it is free in Eight Gadget pack.
