    What are some good CPU temperature monitors for Windows 8?


    I had to get rid of realtemp because of BSOD issues. What are some good monitors that will track the temperature and give me warnings when it goes over? I keep my computer under load quite often and really need one.

    Speedfan is what I have used for years, it gives you temp and fan speed readings with alarms and hard drive smart data readings. It doesn't always start with Windows 8 but there is a new version in the Beta testing stage so hopefully when that is released it will start every time with Windows. You can download it here SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer

    'Core-Temp' is good. Had no issues with it.

    Aidia64 Extreme Edition works superbly. Although you have to buy it, it does give you a 30 day trial period and it's only 30 days. But there are plenty of others out there and some really good free ones. HWmointor, CoreTemp just to name a few.

    One more temperature monitoring software that you can check out. It's none other than Moo0. This temperature monitor also checks your PC Performance.

    If you have an Asus motherboard it usually comes with it's own called PC Probe II and would be on the CD that came with it or available through their site.
