Monitor Your CPU Temperature

An important piece of information to know, especially if you overclock your hardware, is the temperature of your CPU. If your CPU gets too hot, well bad things can happen.

If your motherboard or PC manufacturer do not already have a utility available to do this, then check out Core Temp http://www.thecoolest.zerobrains.com/CoreTemp/. This free lightweight program monitors the temperature on CPU’s and breaks them down by core when applicable. Core Temp supports almost all of the recent CPU’s and is a great tool to have.
