  • Coretemp is malware, why are listing it?

    • They heard you ;-)

    • Abi Prasad


    • Николай Филипов

      What? User issue. Core Temp latest versions have no malware in them.

    • Николай Филипов

      It is quite clearly not now. Used to be, yes.

      However, here is the reply of Core Temp creator on this:
      Since RC8 the installer has been clean of any 3rd party offers.
      It was removed due to user dissatisfaction, and because the offers might have not worked correctly and installed things the user didn’t opt in. Another important reason was google and other providers began to blacklist websites hosting programs which use this sort of monetatization.

      Core Temp doesn’t have any more adware, the only thing changed is a partnership with Driver Agent. A user can click a link on the UI which will take him to the DA page where they can decide whether they want to purchase the software or not. Many hardware monitoring and information applications implement this as well.

      Please note RC8 version came out in Feb this year. So, since then no malware/adware exists in Core Temp any more.

      That is a lie, I’m running it right now with no problems.

  • Abi Prasad

    Speccy best :p

    • Николай Филипов

      No, it is not. Speccy is a general system info app, and that is what it does best.
      Temperature monitoring is not.

    • Mano Kshatriya

      its not babe .. get core temp or real temp app

  • Николай Филипов

    I think it is time to add Core Temp back. Please do so.
    It is firstly:
    * Devoid of any malware – it just adds an URL/icon to an online game, if you let it.
    * And secondly, and also importantly – it is very actively developed, so new functions and support for new CPUs/hardware is constantly added, unlike some of the tools listed.

    So, please consider adding Core Temp back to the list. Thank you in advance.

    I recently purchased a new Lenovo desktop with an AMD CPU. The problem I’ve run into is that AMD no longer uses straightforward temperature monitoring, but rather uses a Thermal Margin measurement. Is there any software that monitors this function or ‘translates’ it to an actual CPU temperature?
