    My first post. My knowledge is ziltch !! So my apologies to all the clever dicks who look at this thread :eek:

    Since finding "RealTemp" I think my installed "CoreTemp" is under engineered. :twitch:
    I like the idea of "portable" RealTemp ... and this forum is very, very active. An encouraging sign.

    Have uninstalled "CoreTemp" and downloaded "RealTemp_370.zip"
    Extracted the ZIP file. A lot of stuff in there ... some that is beyond me. :confused:

    Is there a sticky or tutorial to guide newbies like me. ?

    I do not have a clue what a max/alert temp setting should be.
    Have looked for a "how-to-setup-and-use-RealTemp" but cannot find anything

    Have recently had BSODs maybe caused by overheating or an old nVidia driver (a few white knuckle days until I found the courage to upgrade the driver).

    1. Should RealTemp be run at startup?
    2. Which EXE file would I run at startup?
    3. What is differrence between "RealTemp.exe" and "RealTempGT.exe"
    4. Where/how is RealTemp visible during monitoring? SystTray or a mini window on desktop ?
    5. How should I setup RealTemp ?


    • I am not a gamer, just want to look after my gear.
    • I have 5 other rigs I use for AutoCad
    • the Toshiba is 14 months old and probably due for a clean.
    • Toshiba dont make fan cleaning simple. (Unlike my Acer laptop)

    Thank you :respect:

    1. Should RealTemp be run at startup?

    I just start it manually

    2. Which EXE file would I run at startup?

    RealTemp.exe for a quad core or less CPUs. RealTempGT.exe for 6 core and more CPUs

    3. What is differrence between "RealTemp.exe" and "RealTempGT.exe"

    RealTemp is for quad core, dual core and single CPUs. RealTempGT is for CPUs with 6 or more cores

    4. Where/how is RealTemp visible during monitoring? SystTray or a mini window on desktop ?

    If you minimize RealTemp when it's started, it will be shown in the system tray

    5. How should I setup RealTemp ?

    I just extract it and run it from there. I've never messed with any of the settings or offsets.

    Thank you BarbaricSoul for your response, :)

    CPU temp is something I have wanted to monitor.
    Your suggestions are ... spot on.
    I will give it a try later on to-day.

    Thanks again, much appreciated :)
