what is the best program for reading temperature

Recommended Posts

If you have to rely on software, HWmonitor. Or msi afterburner if you're ONLY interested in gpu temps (there are the other parameters, but I don't trust them too much)


...is there a question here? 🤔

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Yes works with everything MSI just made the software.

As I said, hwmonitor. Or cpu-z.

Like I said HWmonitor as simple as it gets and can display every temperature you have.

Also your gpu.

For CPU:

HWMonitor (has sensors for a whole bunch of stuff)

HWiNFO 32/64 (has even more sensors and provides tons of information, may be somewhat overwhelming)

CoreTemp (doesn't work on a lot of newer CPUs, and I've never seen it work on AMD)

RealTemp (better than CoreTemp, but still some issues)

OCCT (handy because you may already be using it for stress testing)

 

For GPU:

MSI Afterburner (does work with all GPUs, may already be using it for OC)

GPU-Z (simple to use, few issues with GPUs)

HWMonitor (again, generally good for monitoring stuff)

HWiNFO 32/64 (same as above)

 

My personal favorites are HWiNFO and MSI Afterburner because they have been fairly accurate across a variety of systems and configurations.

Would this work with non MSI hardware?

 

Yeah. It works with everything. MSI is just branding on it. The problematic ones are the copycats, EVGA and Asus.

@LinusDropTips, pretty much same list that I throw around. Just add OpenHardwareMonitor and Speedfan to it.

Sorry for stealing your post there, turns out that there are some bits of software that everyone should know about :)

It goes along with list of software for benchmarking and stress testing.
