My original testing was on a Core 2 Duo. The idle calibration factors were also designed around the Core 2 CPU's sensors so there is no need to use them on your Core i CPU.

The first generation Core i CPUs are ovens, especially when overclocking. You have also disabled the low power C States like C3 and C6 so that will create extra heat in the cores.

As long as your CPU is stable then there is no need to worry about its core temperature. Your core temps are fine. Glad you are back to running at full speed.

When can we roughly expect the next stable version? Any estimate? I grew tired of CoreTemp and HWiNFO which report completely different temperatures, and while RT reports completely different numbers as well, I kind of trust it and started using it again :)

P.S. I don't want to be nitpicking, but can you keep the first post updated please?

RealTemp T|I Edition
http://www.overclock.net/t/1330144/realtemp-t-i-edition

I released a one off special of RealTemp for my friends over at Tech|Inferno.

RealTemp 3.80 should be ready by the end of the month with a few more minor features and some updates like System Tray - Notification Area compatibility with Windows 7 and Windows 8. I promise to get the first post updated by then, maybe sooner. :)

Oh great. Looking forward to it.
Btw, I still don't quite understand the calibration feature. Do I absolutely need to do that? I have i7 3770K.

The calibration feature was for Core 2 Duo CPUs. I gave up on calibrating after that.

As long as you realize that Intel does not use 100% accurate sensors then that is all you need to know. Most of their recent sensors have about +/- 5C of error at the calibration point. These sensors are usually good enough for making comparisons within your own system from one day to the next but they should not be used to compare your temperatures to someone else in a forum. If your sensors read too low and their sensors read too high, it's not going to be a very meaningful comparison.

Do plan to add foreign (non-English) language support to RealTemp?
I can translate the program into Russian and Bulgarian.
I did this (Bulgarian) for another similar program, Core Temp.

Naki: Thank you for the offer. I don't have any plans yet to translate RealTemp to different languages. That is definitely a good idea but I don't know if I will ever get around to doing this. I don't have much free time any more to work on RealTemp so I have only been doing minor updates the last few years.

Making a small translation tool should not take much time - the actual translations can be done by volunteers like me. :)
Or maybe even no tool is needed, just a separate text/XML/etc file with the captions/texts of all buttons/labels/controls.
However, I am not sure if you have the captions/text of all controls/labels in a separate location (such as XML/text file or resource file) - if not, it will indeed take more work to do it.

Anyway, thanks for the comments. :)

Problem guys.

When I had 2500K and G630, there was a click-able button that showed watts being consumed etc, then back to the time, real temp was opened.

Now, I dont seem to get that with my new processor, i5-3570.

Any idea?.

Sensor test

Hi, I'm using RealTemp 3.7, and I'm getting some strange results.
I have Dell XPS l702x laptop with 2.0 GHz i7-2630QM. I cleaned it and replace thermal paste, but I'm still getting high temps and strange values for sensor movement test.

Is it possible that temp sensors are not accurate? What means high values in sensor movement test? Should I be worried with this results? I attached screenshot to post.

Thank you.

What worries you exactly? I don't see a single reading over 60 degrees (or even 50 for that matter), your temps seem fine!

Not only is it possible but it is very likely.

Intel does not use 100% accurate core temperature sensors. These sensors are designed to control thermal throttling and thermal shutdown so there has never been any need for Intel to use Space Shuttle grade temperature sensors. An error of +/- 5C at the calibration point is typical for these sensors.

A big number in the Sensor Movement test is normal when you are running this test on a laptop. Laptops have very small heatsinks and very poor cooling compared to a desktop that uses a huge heatsink and fan.

As long as your CPU is not thermal throttling during normal use then everything is OK.

You might be interested in checking out my other program called ThrottleStop. It was designed to give users more control of their Intel laptop processors.

ThrottleStop 5.10 - Beta 2

Naki: I don't see a single reading over 60 degrees..
His peak core temperature was 89C. That's high but still within the Intel spec.

But you can see in right window of my screenshot that temperature rise over 80 degrees when I start test with prime95, When I'm not doing anything complex, temp is about 50

I installed it, but I will take some googleing before I try it. I'm not familiar with some features.
Do you think I should consider changing heatsink and/or fan, summer is coming and that means higher temp, so I'm worried.

Thank you both for answering.

Installing Real Temp On My PC

Important note: I'm unfamiliar with zip files.

I have a Compaq Presario PC SR5710F which runs Windows Vista. How do I install Real Temp 64 kbit on my computer? Using Firefox, I attempted to download the software but it gives the option to open or save. I tried to run the file but it's not working. I checked for installed programs but RealTemp isn't listed.

Can someone help with the installation?

Recent updates have been fairly minor so I haven't bothered to release anything officially for quite a while. RealTemp 3.70 works OK on the Haswell CPUs.

I still have a couple of minor things left to do but I don't have much time available for this project anymore. Intel turns out new processors and new features faster than I can keep up.

RealTemp 4.00 will be the next official version and it will be available here at TechPowerUp when I finally get it finished.
