@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 ;)

kleinkinstein on 2014-03-22 13:09

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

appsuser on 2019-09-03 23:47

The customized versions for different board manufacturers (on the home page) are also portable (download the zip package). The customized versions include the manufacturer's logo as a window background and theme.

Baas: no prob, thanks for direct-linking the 32 and 64-bit versions. Adding a notice about the adware version.

TP109 on 2014-09-05 05:39

In spite of the adware issues, I think this is the easiest-to-use and to setup CPU temperature application. It's on all my PCs and I've never had a problem with it. Just set it and forget it. The digital temperature display in the system tray is very visible and useful when resource-heavy apps are running. I'm surprised this isn't rated higher.

IntelBurnTest v2.54

Specular on 15 Nov 2018
  • 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, 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

lwc on 7 Aug 2021
  • 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.

Category:
Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: Application folder

How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch RealTemp.exe.
What's new?
  • Support for Sandy Bridge CPUs.
  • VID based power consumption estimates for the newer CPUs.
  • Improved log file formatting.
