useless. to most of us, PORTABLE requires us to be able to run as NON-ADMIN. can't use this. can't install it. not truly portable. don't get me wrong, I use it all the time on my cluster at home, just can't use this at work or on common machines at school.

@Cattleya: Make sure you download the zip package, because the installer does the following:
"The kernel mode driver used by CPU-Z is installed on the system, that avoids to install / remove it at every run."
The portable version leaves no driver behind, just tested it.

@kc: I used to do sysadmin for a small non-profit org. 7 pc's and 2 printers, no big deal. I carried all my tools on a pendrive. Off course I had admin-rights, but this is a typical scenario a lot of us are in, so it's not entirely useless, portable is the way to go for sysadmins ;)

CPUZ is old, tired and practically useless. It's heyday was about six years ago. Speccy is a must for today.

Just checked. The .zip files currently available for download from the CPUID website are not empty now.

IntelBurnTest v2.54 New

billon on 3 Jul 2017
  • 6MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 20 Jul 2012
  • Suggested by Specular

IntelBurnTest allows CPU benchmarking and stability tests under a heavy load. The program is commonly used by the overclocking community to measure CPU temperature when used in conjunction with a separate temperature monitoring program.

NOTE: The program will stress the CPU, memory, and north bridge to their, meaning the machine will run unusually hot. Make sure your PC is properly cooled and ventilated before use. Additionally, setting the "times to run" past 20 doesn't provide better results.

The program is a front-end for the CPU stress testing utility Intel Linpack.

Real Temp v3.70 Updated

smaragdus on 7 Jul 2017
  • 721KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 16 Jan 2012
  • Suggested by guinness

Real Temp is a monitoring program designed to see the temperature of all Intel "Core" processors including Core 1, 2, i3, i5, and i7 processors. Each core has a digital thermal sensor (DTS) that reports data relative to the safe maximum operating temperature, known as "TjMax". As your CPU heats up, your "Distance to TjMax" will decrease.

As these processors will start to throttle or slow down as they approach their maximum temperature, it's possible to have a computer that slows down dramatically. To increase speed and reliability, a good TjMax distance is ideal.

The program also supports full logging, temperature alarms and shutdown, and the ability to calibrate for each core of your CPU.

What's new?
  • Support for Sandy Bridge CPUs.
  • VID based power consumption estimates for the newer CPUs.
  • Improved log file formatting.
  • Added a single system tray icon that reports the maximum core temperature.
  • RealTemp GT updated for the 6 core Sandy Bridge E CPUs.
  • i7 Turbo GT 1.30 multiplier monitoring tool.

Have been using this since version 3.00. Works perfectly with x64.
