TechPowerUp Announces RealTemp 3.70

TechPowerUp today published the latest version of RealTemp, a comprehensive system processor temperature monitoring, logging, and clock speed monitoring utility. Version 3.70 packs several important updates over the previous version, starting with support for 6-core Intel "Sandy Bridge-E" processors, complete support for "Sandy Bridge" processors, more reliable power-consumption estimation using VID, updated i7 Turbo GT tool that lets you monitor multiplier changes with EIST and Turbo Boost playing tug-of-war, improved log file formatting, and visually-better max-temperature reporting through system-tray.

Holy Shit!!

It picks up my overclock!

I overclocked my i5-2500k to 4.8Ghz.. but the only program to identify it is CPU-Z. The rest read stock clocks..

Now, finally, Real Temp - which has always been my temp app of choice - does the same!

Sir, you have a donation of 10$ coming your way.

P.S. How do I donate? :D

Sure, if ASUS pays us for that.

It would be nice if someone mentioned that these apps are for Intel only. Because it doesn't say anything about it in the news itself...

Unclewebb, Does this fix the wattage reporting? mine says 73W with 4.3Ghz 1.275V? shouldn't that be higher?
RealTemp uses the Intel recommended method for reporting wattage. Unfortunately Intel cheaped out so this calculation is based on the VID voltage and not the actual core voltage. When you overclock and manually set the voltage in the bios, the CPU VID voltage and the actual voltage can be completely different so the Intel method falls on its face. If the VID voltage and actual voltage are the same then the reported power consumption should be very accurate.

TechPowerUp has always been the #1 home of RealTemp. I wrote most of the code but the W1zzard has donated some code to my projects along the way so I thought it was a good idea at the time to let TPU host it. No regrets there. TPU has grown into a great site since 2008. :toast:
