    That's what I use. There's a stand-alone version that requires no install, which is nice.

    Not much details with it, HW Monitor gives a lot more data.

    Coretemp is really great, small footprint, cpu temp monitoring. Also, hardware monitor can and has been known to cause stability issues with certain hardware and graphics cards, namely nvidia cards, while running rivatuner for GPU onscreen display, due to over polling of the sensors.
    I've had personal experiance with it, while trying to get CPU temp to show in the onscreen display overlay alogn with gpu temp etc... the only way to get cpu temp in there was to run hardware monitor, and it would cause my graphics drivers to crash, a lot.

    I use HWmonitor for monitoring CPU temps and it works great, but if you just want information on your CPU then I would suggest like others who have replied to this post to download Core Temp.

    Nice one, too bad it does not work with AMD.
