Monitoring the computer’s temperature is very important, especially when the processor temperature is too high. Sometimes you can feel the heat coming out of the PC in which you need to check the CPU temperature.
As we know, today the Windows operating system is the most popular among users. Thus, there is a very urgent question, namely, does Windows provide the means to check the temperature of my computer’s processor? If not, are there any software tools that can disclose this information?
Unfortunately, whether Windows 7 or Windows 10, they do not offer any way to check the temperature of your computer’s processor. To do this, you need to access the system BIOS to find information that consumes a lot of time, and also requires expertise.
Fortunately, there are several free CPU temperature monitoring programs that make it easy to see the temperature of your PC’s processor. These tempo monitoring tools are third-party applications that provide accurate readings using motherboard sensors.
How to check the CPU temperature in Windows 10
The fastest and most reliable way to check the CPU temperature is to download the free Core Temp utility. This small gadget the size of the size is available both in the settings and in the portable version. It provides separate core temperature measurement. It works fine in Windows 7 and Windows 10, but be careful with installing IQ crap (installs toolbars / ads in the browser). When downloading Core Temp, always use the standalone version.
Well, this is not the only option that you have here. You can also download the HW Monitor, which shows a wide range of system sensors. In addition to controlling the temperature, it also shows the system voltage, fan speed and power consumption for your processor. It also supports all hardware connected to your computer with sensors (including graphics cards and hard drives). If you need a program with a more advanced tool (showing much more information), you can use HW Info.
Finally, Speed Fan also controls the CPU temperature, GPU temperature, S.M.A.R.T. data, hard disk temperature, etc. It also allows you to adjust the fan speed when you think the processor emits more heat. However, I will not recommend this software, because it is rather difficult to use plus risky. If you do not know what you are doing, you can also damage your computer.
