Coretemeter (AMD64 processors)

Coretemeter is a small and handy tool designed to construct the graph of the core temperature of the AMD64 processors using the readings of on-die CPU thermal sensor. The utility supports drawing the core temperature for each core of a dual-core processor. There is an option to set a rate of reading the temperature. You can select 1, 2 or 6 times per second for the rate. Besides, Coretemeter calculates an average value of the temperature for each time period of monitoring. Also, you can define a priority of reading the temperature. During stress load on the CPU this allocates more time to the utility to construct the graph. Besides, both for single and dual core AMD64 processors Coretemeter constructs a temperature graph using readout of external hardware monitor also known as Super I/O chip. This logical addition transforms Coretemeter into the temperature comparator. Now you can examine how far the reading of hardware monitor differ from the readings of processor’s on-die thermal diode. The utility is very simple to use.
