"unable to use - my proc unsupported"

August 01, 2011  |  By anon_txatyahoo.com

 |  Version: Core Temp 0.99.8

Pros

Unable to say.

Cons

Installed it but when I started the ap, it reported that my Intel P4 in a Compaq Presario R3000 was not supported. Go figure.

Summary

Lack of support for my machine (vintage ~2004) was kinda surprising given that I am seeing posts from Win7 users about this product who are most likely using machines newer than mine. I'm sure the design of this machine was a 'reference design' and it isn't that old. Baffling. I will confess I have not booted since the install but given that the ap did not request a reboot and wanted to run immediately after install I am taking it at its face value and assuming it will never run.

"Useful like a tachometer in a car"

June 30, 2011  |  By Karl Balke

 |  Version: Core Temp 0.99.8

Pros

Provides a reliable indication of processor usage.
Has not misbehaved since the correction of the Windows handle leakage problem.
Establishes temperature behavior that may signal serious problems some day.

Cons

None thus far.

Summary

I use this as the engine for the Core Temp gadget for Windows 7. This gadget presents the processor and RAM usage visually. I find this helpful when some program decides to use all of a processor for no good reason; the display catches my attention and lets me use the Task Manager to kill the offending service.

"Great application that does what it claims!"

June 30, 2011  |  By CadWizard

 |  Version: Core Temp 0.99.8

Pros

Doesn't use a lot of memory or system resources and does it's job without the slightest glitch.

Cons

If it matters to you, maybe a newer GUI would hurt.

"Simple. Works well. One minor caveat."

June 20, 2011  |  By TrackSmart

 |  Version: Core Temp 0.99.8

Pros

Shows CPU temperature. For Intel CPU's that support it, the program shows temperature of individual CPU cores (nice!). Very small, lightweight program.

Cons

It lists a max temperature for your CPU (TJ max), but if your CPU doesn't report a number to the program, it still puts an arbitrary value there. It's not a problem, but don't take stock in that number.

Summary

Small program that does it's job. I wish it also reported temperatures from other components (video card, motherboard, etc).
