Download Core Temp v1.0 RC4

This program that lets you monitor Intel's Core 2 and Core i3i5i7, AMD Athlon64 and later VIA C7 and Nano chips' die temperature.
The temperature readings are very accurate as the data is collected from a Digital Thermal Sensor (or DTS) which is located in each individual processing core, near the hottest part.
For more information click here

There is also an article posted about Core Temp and a little background on standard thermal sensors - Article
Please help out Core Temp popularity by Digging it.

If you find any bugs, please post it in the "Bugs" section ASAP!
Any suggestions on improvements or ideas are welcome in the "Development" section.
Note 1: Please read the ReadMe!.txt file for some useful tips.

What's new:

Version 1.0 RC4 - 15th October, 2012

*** Core Temp Monitor is now available, an Android app to monitor your machines from anywhere in the world!
More information is available here


- New: Multilingual interface. Core Temp now natively supports adding non-English languages.
- New: Plugin system - 3rd party developers can now create plugins and extensions for Core Temp, both native code and .Net is supported, please see here for more information.
- New: Added support for Intel Pentium and AMD K5 and newer processors. (detection only, Temperature by Acpi Thermalzones)
- New: Added support for VIA processors. (C3 - detection only, Temperature by Acpi Thermalzones)
- New: Intel Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge, AMD Bulldozer, Piledriver and Fusion (Trinity, Llano, Brazos) support.
- New: Max TDP detection on supporting processors.
- New: Active power consumption on Intel's Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge processors.

- Fix: All of the user reported bugs and many more unreported problems.

- Update: Optimized the startup code, Core Temp should now launch 2 to 4 times faster.
- Update: Optimized many other aspects of the code, Core Temp should now consume much less CPU time than before.
- Update: Restored support for older OS: Windows XP is now fully supported, Windows 2000 requires security updates KB935839, KB835732and GDI+. In some cases Hotfix KB816542 may be needed as well.

The links are live and kicking, unfortunatly there may be problems for some people to actually get on the website, I'm not sure why.
I'll see what I can do, maybe I'll post a link to the IP of the server if its possible.
Sorry it doesn't work for you ^_^

Nice utility really. Works nice under WinXP but i've tried it on two other PC's - both of them are running Vista RC2 and your proggie doesn't work on one of them.

It works on ATi chipset based Shuttle XPC, it does not work on nVidia nF4 SLI system. Keep up the good work.

Yes, Vista x64 edition requires a driver to be digitally signed and this signiture costs $500/yr, I refuse to pay that much to be able to run a FREE UTILITY on M$ new OS. I'm sorry but this is just ridiculous.
I hope there may be a workaround later on, but from current prospects I don't see this problem going away any time soon :sad:

nice stuff, thanx.
However, here's a n00b question. whats an alright temperature for a 939 X2 4600+ ? I am currently getting a 54-55 C at both cores. while the casing's on and no air conditioning in room.

It also show's a TCASE temperature, which i assume is the total case temperature as 59 Degrees C. is all this cool?

Well 55C is an ok temperature for stressed CPU, if its running stock speed, idle then I guess it is pretty warm.
Also the TCaseMax is somewhat decieving, as it relates to the highest temperature that the junction between heatsink and IHS/Core can get to, while the temps Core Temp shows are the core's internal temperature.

And if you want more info on TCaseMax there is a dedicated app for that here, it also has some more info on the whole concept of TCaseMax and what it could mean to hardware enthusiasts/overclockers.

I'm on x86-32bit Vista - Your proggie works on one Vista based machine while it doesn't work on other - Both systems use the same version of Vista - Built 5744 RC2.
