Scythe Partnering up With CoreTemp Development Team

The Japanese cooling specialist Scythe Co. Ltd. is partnering up with CoreTemp, a small but very useful freeware-tool for measuring temperatures of all common CPUs.

Core Temp is a compact program to monitor CPU temperature and is compatible with Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows Vista 32bit and 64bit. Unique for Core Temp is its capability to measure the temperatures of every single core when using multicore-CPUs. The temperature readings are very accurate because the data is read out from a Digital Thermal Sensor of the CPU which is located in each individual core, near the hottest part of this unit. Because of this, the Software is completely mainboard independent.

Core Temp is the optimal tool for everybody who wants to get real-time CPU temperature information. Using its integrated logging-function, users can record their temperatures over any period of time and then analyze the data collected using e.g. Microsoft Excel or any other suitable program.

"Being recommended by the famous cooling manufacturer Scythe is providing me lots of new ways in improving my software and is a huge additional motivation for me", Arthur Liberman, programmer of Core Temp says.

Not knocking CoreTemp here .... but doesn't Real Temp also display individual core temps?

I prefer realtemp to coretemp if i be honest. Interesting to see how this partnership works out.

yes, because you have an intel CPU and RealTemp is more accurate than Coretemp for reading Core2 series. For AMD Coretemp is better.

Awesome. This is a really cool little app. I'm glad to see it's getting some major support. :)

thank you, but after i tried it, it was useless:shadedshu, it read my temp 11 c and 23 c :eek: WTF, after i check in BIOS my temp was 45 c,

someone can fry their CPU and didn't realize at all with this program

REAL TEMP only works on INTEL CPUS, Core temp works on ALL CPU's.

Failure, one of the sensors on you proc is broken and your bios is wrong.

It's a matter of personal taste. For Intel owners RealTemp is better IMO. It has some unique features like Sensor movement test, CPU Cool Down Test, RivaTuner plugin, small footprint on CPU usage, real time frequency (try to change your FSB with SetFSB and watch frequency with RealTemp and CoreTemp), nVidia GPU temp, thorough testing of TJmax for a variety of CPU's (take a look at XS testings done by rge or unclewebb), idle calibration (useful for those who want to see real temperatures in idle/medium-load for 45 nm CPU's).
