Core Temp is a compact, no fuss, small footprint, yet powerful program to monitor processor temperature and other vital information.

What makes Core Temp unique is the way it works. It is capable of displaying a temperature of each individual core of every processor in your system!
You can see temperature fluctuations in real time with varying workloads. Core Temp is also motherboard agnostic.

All major processor manufacturers have implemented a 'DTS' (Digital Thermal Sensor) in their products. The DTS provides more accurate and higher resolution temperature readings than conventional onboard thermal sensors. (How does it work?).
This feature is supported by all recent x86 processors. Processors by Intel, AMD and VIA are supported. A complete list of supported processors is available.

Core Temp is easy to use, while also enabling a high level of customization and expandability.
Core Temp provides a platform for plug-ins, which allows developers to add new features and extend its functionality. You can find our plug-ins and add-ons here.
If you are a developer and you are interested in creating your own addition, please see the developer's page.

Introduction

Since the introduction of the Maximum CPU Temp test in BurnInTest 6, it's been a vital tool for PC enthusiasts and overclockers looking to verify CPU and cooling system reliability and stability with a maximized heat generation torture test. In the newest version of BurnInTest (V9 Build 1000), we've optimized the heat generation feature to produce higher temperatures in shorter times for torture testing multi-core CPUs.

To test the effectiveness of our new heat algorithm, we've conducted a small benchmark test comparing BurnInTest to other CPU stress test utilities available on the web. The products we have benchmarked are BurnInTest Professional, Prime95, Core Damage, OCCT and Hot CPU Tester Pro.
For more information about the products we have tested, our test tools or test methodology, please see below.

Benchmark Results

The graph below compares CPU temperatures in degrees Celsius over the duration of an eight minute stress test:

The graph on the left compares Peak CPU temperatures to Average CPU Temperatures for each application over the duration of the stress test. The graph on the right compares the CPU temperature increase from the baseline as a result of performing stress testing with each product.

Our results demonstrate that:

  • BurnInTest Professional is more efficient at CPU heat generation than all other tested utilities.
  • BurnInTest Professional made the CPU 28.35°C hotter than the baseline on average.
  • At all points of testing, BurnInTest Professional generated a higher temperature than all other tested stress testing software.

All tested utilities, including BurnInTest Professional, were either free or evaluation copies of commercial software. Testing was performed on 64-bit versions of software.

Testing Methodology and Tools

An Intel® Core™ i5-6600K CPU was chosen for our benchmarking as it represents an extremely common CPU in the current PC population (as of August 2017). For our benchmark testing, we have used the Intel® Core™ i5-6600K.

To measure the temperature of the CPU, a third party utility named RealTemp (version 3.7) was used.

RealTemp was configured to log the temperature of each CPU core at a rate of one sample per second for a total of 480 temperature samples over eight minutes. Our results show the average of two temperatures (one for each core) for each second over the duration of a stress test.

For each stress test utility, we conducted the benchmark using the 'Heat Generation' setting, for example, we used the 'Small FFTs' mode for Prime95 which maximizes CPU heat generation. Where a heat generation specific setting wasn't available, we conducted a CPU torture test on default program settings.

The quick test option 'Maximum CPU Temp' was selected when testing with BurnInTest Professional.

For comparison purposes, we have also obtained a baseline which shows the average temperature of the CPU during system idle. Between testing applications, the machine was left idle until the CPU temperature had returned to the baseline figure (approximately 10 - 20 minutes).

Notes on our Testing

Cpu Heat Monitor Software

  • Ambient temperature may have an impact on CPU temperatures and results. Our testing was conducted near room temperature (24°C).
  • Our results are accurate for the Intel® Core™ i5-6600K with a standard cooling configuration. Your results may differ depending on your hardware and setup.
