What is the period for average temp calculation in the system tray?

when "average" is selected for the temperature in the system tray, what period (length of time) is Realtemp using to make that average calcultion? Is it the past 10 seconds, 20 seconds, minute, 24 hours? I like having it show a relatively stable temperature instead of jumping around so much... but I hope it's still refreshing fairly often. The past 10 or 20 seconds would probably be good, I'm thinking.

From when you select average.... so as soon as you select average it calculates the average temp it has been at from that point up until the point you change it? not the best, you want current temp at all times, not average.....

Yeah it does appear that way. Would be nice if the average calculation was rolling, and you could adjust the period. Or maybe I need something that logs the temperature and gives alerts if the temp is too high for some period of time.

Real Temp - setting - option to enable logging and alarm temp
Core Temp does also have an logging option and Overheat protection warning

You want the current temps and maximum, no point in average temps.

Thanks... I think that was what I needed actually. In the process of figuring out what I wanted, I ended up using Speedfan and am sticking with it for now. Speedfan seems to have a few more options - for example how often the notification is given... also it reads my hard drive temp too.

In Speedfan I have enabled logging, and I set it up in the tray to only show notifications (a popup balloon) when the temp is over 50 C. I'm only really interested in the temperature when it gets hot... otherwise at low temps the number is just a distraction.

One issue with speedfan is that it didn't show the temperatures correct at first ... it showed them as 15 degrees under the actual. But you can put an offset in to correct it. I have a skylake core i3 6100T.

yeah, after all I don't really care about the average or rolling average. The current temp, maximum, and features I mentioned above are more useful.
