    Hey guys...
    I know it took forever, but Core Temp version 1.0 (RC1) is here at last!
    There were many delays due to life, college projects and other things that just got in the way.
    I hope that the improvements and enhancements which v1.0 brings will make up for it.
    So without further ado here is the change log for the new version.

    Version 1.0 RC1 - 18th August, 2011

    *** 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 this for more information.
    - New: Intel Sandy Bridge and AMD Fusion (Brazos, Llano) support.
    - New: Max TDP detection on supporting processors.
    - New: Power consumption on Intel's Nehalem and newer processors.
    - New: Added support for VIA processors. (C3 - detection only, Temperature by Acpi Thermalzones)
    - New: Added support for Intel Pentium and AMD K5 and newer processors. (detection only, Temperature by Acpi Thermalzones)

    - 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, KB835732 and GDI+. In some cases hotfix KB816542 may be needed as well.

    Yep lol been using this app for ages now :)

    Great job and kudos for the effort to maintain this app up to date when you have free time ! The new plugin system seems nice too ! Users will find some good use of it i'm sure :)

    I've been using Core Temp for, what, hmm, I guess about six or seven years...or as long as it's been available.
  • edited Aug 2011
    Small problem, when running Core Temp 1.00 rc1 on my I7 2600k, each of the cores will alternate and register 98'c then return to their actual temperature.

    If I am under load I can watch as core 1 will go from its load temp ,i.e., 62'c and then show 98'c, then back to 62'c....

    This happens with all the cores in no particular order.

    Because of this it always registers a max temp of 98'c. What can I do to correct this?

    System Specs:

    2600k @ 4.4 1.32v; 4.6 1.38v; 4.8 1.45v; 5.0 1.53v

    Version 1.0 RC2 - 7th September, 2011

    - Fix: Temperature spikes to TjMax on Sandy Bridge CPUs.
    - Fix: Settings not saved properly bug.

    - Change: Changed frequency detection back to the original for Intel processors.
    - Change: Removed power consumption feature on older CPUs (only supported by Sandy Bridge now).

    - Known issues: Occasionally wrong FSB detection (Workaround: Press F5 in Core Temp).
    - Known issues: Recognition of Atom E600 series.

    Multiple websites tested the program and it's fine.
    And just as Thrax posted, ESET is just throwing false positives at you.
    W3i is working on eliminating the problem with them.

    Core Temp is a valuable program, and the latest release does not have a virus in the installer. Anything to the contrary is an obvious false positive. Please do not hesitate to try this fantastic application.

    Wow, just two weeks after I regretfully considered this app dead and moved on to HWMonitor, it's back from the grave! The timing couldn't be better. Hooray!

  • The-CoolestThe-Coolest Tel Aviv, Israel Icrontian

    Version 1.0 RC9 - 4th June, 2016

    • New: Added support for AMD Kabini, Mullins, Carrizo, Kaveri and Godavari APUs.
    • New: Added support for Haswell-EP CPUs

    • Fix: Update notification popup now identifies it as being Core Temp.

    • Fix: Core Temp crash on update check.
    • Fix: Core Temp window invisible due to being out of desktop bounds.
    • Fix: Haswell Crystal Well frequency and TDP were missing.
    • Fix: AMD Kaveri/Godavari CPUs were stuck at 16C/61F.
    • Fix: Incorrect VID reported for newer AMD FX processors.
    • Fix: AMD Trinity temperature was reported too high.
    • Fix: When 'Display distance to TjMax' option is enabled, no indication string appears on AMD CPUs.
    • Tip: Enabling the option above will result in the same temperature readings as in AMD Overdrive.

    I know that this is probably not relevant for most of you, but I just wanted to let everyone know that the Windows Phone app was updated on the Microsoft app store.
    The bug where the app crashed as soon as you started it was fixed as well as a couple of other small problems.
    Sadly the app store refused to accept the app with Live Tile features, which was supposed to bring some new functionality to it, so I had to cut that part out for now.

    Version 1.2 - 13th August, 2016

    • Fix: Recognition for some Xeon processors.
    • Fix: Driver load failure on Windows 7 and Vista.

    • Known issues: Some systems running Windows 10 Anniversary may still have driver load failure.

    Note:
    With this version I have entered a new partnership with Goodgame Studios, they're a German company who develops free-to-play online games.
    This installer includes an option to choose whether you want a shortcut linking to their Empire online game website to be put on your desktop or not. As some of you may have had negative experiences with installers including 3rd party garbage, I thought it was important to let everyone know that even if you don't opt-out of this option, the installer will NOT install anything on your system except a *.url file and an icon.

    Version 1.3 - 10th September, 2016

    • New: Support for Xeon D processors.

    • Fix: K8 generation of AMD CPUs displayed "Distance to TjMax" text when it was not actually doing that.

    • Fix: Recognition for Xeon W3670, W3680 processors.

    • Known issues: Some systems running Windows 10 Anniversary may still have driver load failure.

    Note:
    Regarding Core Temp and Windows 10 Anniversary Update. This Windows release requires drivers to be submitted to Microsoft for them to digitally sign them, and this in turn requires the developer to have an EV (extended validation) code signing certificate. At the time of writing, I still don't have an EV certificate and I'm waiting for my certificate provider to start supplying them. As soon as I am able to acquire an EV certificate and get the drivers properly signed, Core Temp will be updated again.
    Until this issue is resolved, Core Temp 1.0 RC9 should still work with Windows 10 Anniversary Update. You can download it here.
    One more workaround, which I don't recommend, is to turn off Secure Boot in the BIOS.

    Version 1.4 - 11th October, 2016

    • Fix: Crash when logging is enabled on machines with 20+ cores.
    • Fix: AMD Carrizo temperature detection.
    • Fix: Corrected Xeon D codename to Broadwell-DE.

    • Known issues: Some systems running Windows 10 Anniversary may still have driver load failure.
