Most computer hardware is highly sensitive to temperature and this is certainly true of processors. Monitoring the temperature of your processor can reveal the cause of stability problems and this is precisely what Core Temp enables you to do.
As the name would suggest, the program does not just report the overall temperature of your processor, but individual temperatures for each of the cores. Core Temp also shows the load of each core so you can see how temperature changes with load.
The program can be used to record temperature changes over time and temperatures are displayed in the main program window as well as in the system tray. With support for both Intel and AMD processor, Core Temp provides an easy way to monitor your processor.
There are a number of add-ons available for Core Temp that can be used to add new features and options to the program. Add-ons include a sidebar gadget and graphing tool that can be used to make it easier to keep a constant eye on temperature changes.
