    i have core temp for windows 10 but portable version but i use hdwinfo64 more way better

  2. ShadowzGSD

    not really relevant but for some reason i was reminded of the widgets that we used to get in days long gone. were not around for long but i used several of them and miss them.

    There is only one solution to CPU temp on Win 11….It's called Linux.

    Hi Britec,there is a problem on my pc where i click power on settings it just closes itself

  5. Da Biggie

    i have the latest version of Windows 11 OS build (22631.2506) and it has a problem on settings.i press power option the settings just closes itself

    I also use Coretemp, it shows what I want and it is very low on resources.

    Whatcha Brian. Been using HWinfo & Aida64 extreme for years. My primary concern for all of these utilities are the constant polling of S.M.A.R.T. attributes which can overheat & put unnecessary wear and tear on the devices controller. Good post! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    I put this on every machine. Great tool. Consider donating to the creator as well. I have.

    I still use XMeters Pro made by entropy6 I've used it for years! It has Real-time System Monitoring & it's Customizable, performs well, light weight when its running. ๐Ÿ‘


    Brian — you and I have this eerie coincidence thing that's been going on for years. I swear for a while there you were reading my alter ego's antics at a Windows forum and providing timely answers to good questions. But this time I have proof that, no, we're just linked.

    I recently bought a nice Beelink Mini PC. Setting it up 'my way' has taken time and just yesterday (I'm not kidding, yesterday!) I was trying to remember the name of that program you prefer, HWMIWTFO or whatever it's called. I thought to myself, sheesh, that program is a b!tch to set up for someone who only wants something simpler and easier to use.

    And, once again — you've read my mind and VOILA provided the answer before I asked.

  11. the Fahrenheit option is weird. I'm in the US and measure every temp in Fahrenheit except for when it comes to PC components. Celsius for pc components is just engrained in my head and honestly i couldn't even tell you what a Celsius temp is in Fahrenheit lol.

    Brian, could you please do a video about Windows S-mode – good or bad? thanks in advanced.


    I use G helper instead of asus armouryy crate and it shows me cpu temps and fan speed from
    system tray when i hover the pointer over itโค

    I use the temp sensor in "Fan control" for the cpu temp and then I use Crystaldiskinfo if I want to check my SSD temps.

  15. Loke Laufeyson

    no big need to check my temperatures.. 30 C overall (22 C indoor temperature).. my system is not bloated so.. it only do effective work and much less work in general.

  16. John Goard

    Good one Brian I have been using this software for some time but not being a gamer I do not use it that often and my readout is just a simple one with just the temps shown. I do have HWinfo installed as well which I find like you say more informative๐Ÿ˜‰

  17. Gerald Walling

    I have used Core Temp in the past. I am currently using Fan Control. It will also show temperature in the taskbar as well as set the fan speed for different temperatures.

  18. Hey @Britec09, Brian, can you just use the standalone package to get this to work the same rougher as the Windows Executable program?
    I am yet to try, and an answer may save me the time if known. Thanks & Peace

    Nice to see that Eset icon in your taskbar โ˜บ

  20. IDMooseMan

    I am quite happy with HWInfo. This one looks like it could be useful for some folks.

  21. Davin Hunt

    I personally use msi afterburner because it has the option to use little bar graphs for a smaller visual depiction for CPU usage and such and you have other monitoring display options for the rest of your pc. you can even add other data sources from other programs. There is an issue with these taskbar/tray style icons though and that win 11 doesn't seem to respect your positioning. it will randomly order icons in the tray or taskbar and not respect your carefully placed previous positions

    Can you do a video on Hasleo Backup Suite Free ? like if it can create and restore backup images ,clone drives , just an over all how to.. video.. also is it actually free or is there a catch? and future proof? ty

  23. Christopher

    i don't really understand how this isn't a standard thing like they did with GPU temp….

  24. Christopher

    a video to show what services are safe to disable/set manual
    Using a custom windows 10 pro iso and running under 90 processes with all my programs on but I'd like to see how windows react to services change after windows updates

  25. Malcolm Price

    I am getting this message when trying to run this software Microsoft Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk.

  26. Ladioz

    I want to see CPU temp in task manager like the GPU

  27. Tibor Madarasi

    Thats great ๐Ÿ™‚ perfect explanation and setup ๐Ÿ‘ I wonder if there is an application to adjust the fan

  28. MrSammy
