Also if you click on Motherboard you will get still mor info.

Another presentation of info about your system, including the mobo, is with:

CPU-Z CPU-Z
CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

Gathers info on your:
CPU
  • Name and number.
  • Core stepping and process.
  • Package.
  • Core voltage.
  • Internal and external clocks, clock multiplier.
  • Supported instruction sets.
  • Cache information.
Mainboard
  • Vendor, model and revision.
  • BIOS model and date.
  • Chipset (northbridge and southbridge) and sensor.
  • Graphic interface.

awesome! looks like more late night research and a midnight phone call again LoL. thanks you guys! ill be checking into those programs when i get off work.

by the way, after that backup issue i got windows to back up my computer. so i finally installed my AMD Phenom II x4 965 3.4ghz and my Ultra ChillTec Black edition cooler. all's running well so far!

thanks again A Guy and karlsnooks.

thanks for your help too night hawk. ill be looking into all those programs guys.

in the meantime, is PC wizard 2010 different from cpuid? because i was reading somewhere in another thread where someone was looking for a program to monitor core temps. he ended up running like 4 different programs at once to compare each. he said that cpuid was always monitoring 10 degrees higher than the others.

pros and cons of pc wizard or cpuid? or are there better programs out there that i'm not seeing?


thanks for the help guys
When minimized and displayed onscreen you typically only the main cpu temp with PC Wizard. But the readings with it are generally quite accurate when compared to other programs like the old everest home edition that reported false high temps. The program comes from the same source as CPU-ID and GPU-Z by the way.

When the main window is open for PC Wizard 2010 it will display voltages as well as the video card temp along with both core and main processor temps. The options are similar to System Infor for Windows and the Speccy program you have now.

CoreTemp will simply show the main cpu temp when revealing the hidden icons in the notification area if set to hide. The PC Wizard program is far more useful in several areas however and is seen at CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

**UPDATE**

i got an email back from the creator of the core temp program. here's what he wrote me back:

"Hi Colin,

This is a design problem I haven't given much thought before, this will be fixed in the upcoming Core Temp version. But just so that everything's clear, the Phenoms and derivatives only have a single thermal sensor per processor, this means that with the next Core Temp version you will see 4 readings that show the same temperature in the gadget.

Thanks,
Arthur"

this makes sense for this reason; when you go into the all cpu meter options, and click on the link for core temp, it takes you to this website Windows Gadgets - All CPU Meter. the picture on this website of the gadget shows an Intel Core i7 CPU Q720 @1.6GHz (see snippet attach). i am running a quad core AMD Phenom II.

looks like problem solved, unless anyone found something else.

"Per processor" meaning each core or the entire processor? Having readouts being all the same for every core is the same as just posting one temperature. Phenoms have 1-6 individual cores, so they should have all different readings. The i7 would have 4 duplicate readings due to the hyperthreading virtual cores. However, physical cores will all be unique. Is this what he meant?

to me, he meant the entire processor. as advanced as quad and six core processor's are, i would almost expect them to have temp readings per core, not just 1 for the whole processor.

honestly i'm not sure what he meant. thats the only email i've gotten from him. ill send him another if ya like or ill give you his mailing address.

This is why I stuck with PC Wizard rather then Core Temp while that can also be looked at in the system tray reading there for the main temp. The image shows the variations seen with the cores when running the other program rather then what you would expect to see with a gadget.

Gadgets would be much harder to write in order to be made to provide a full breakdown since they have to be compact programs to start with while a regular full screen app can provide far more there. I think this is what was trying to be hinted on in the reply you saw without that person going into detail.
