Get CPU Temperature With PowerShell. Function Get-Temperature. $t = Get-WmiObject MSAcpiThermalZoneTemperature -Namespace 'root/wmi'. $currentTempKelvin = $t.CurrentTemperature / 10. $currentTempCelsius = $currentTempKelvin - 273.15. Temperature is a very critical condition to a computer, especially to the key components like processor (CPU) inside your computer. But how can you check and monitor it before it’s too late? There are basically 2 ways.

Check Temperature Cmd

Thevcgencmdutility allows reading a few dozen hardware measurements on the Raspberry Pi boards.

CPU Temperature

Typical temperatures in office environment, with case:

A red thermometer icon GPU-superimposed on the Raspberry Pi display output means the Raspberry Pi is overheating and is throttling the CPU and GPU to avoid self-destruction.

CPU clock

The current Raspberry Pi CPU speed (actual speed, not limits or requested speed) is obtained from

The output is in units of Hertz:

Log measurements

crontab -e can periodically log temperature and CPU frequency, e.g. add a line like:

loggerwrites the measured parameters into the system log.
