View Full Version : Monitoring Temperature

What would be the best way for monitoring the temperature (?) Preferably in windows.
I will have Maximus Hero VII board.
Also I know this is not the motherboard thread - but how many sensors does the motherboard have? Would I need any extra sensors or these on MB are enough?

Hello taksdd

Real temp 3.70 and Hwmonitor are both good. HWMonitor gives more than the cpu temp, real temp just gives the cpu temp.

You don't need any more sensors.

Reaaltemp Ti also gives you operating frequency, clock, multiplier and load, VID or CPU power or time, c-state statistics, and can alarm on temperature. It is more compact than hwinfo64 and can be started minimized displaying max core temperature in the system tray. HWinfo64 can do all of this except for the processor c-state statistics. Hwinfo64 can also display time series graphs for any of the items it monitors, including disk and gpu values. I use both depending on my needs, realtemp being more lightweight.
