"Core Temp" - A program for accurate Core, Core 2 and K8 CPU temperature monitoring
Download Core Temp v0.99.3
This is a new program that lets you monitor Intel's "Core", "Core 2" and all AMD K8 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.
