    I like to monitor the CPU Temperature .

    I tried speedfan , good for desktops ... but it does not support well my laptop.

    Is there anything better ?

    Thanks man .

    CoreTemp = will not run with Pentium M processor . :(

    I am testing the others .

    Well, I didn't really notice the Pentium M in your sig. Check out RMClock and HWMonitor. They will definitely work. RMClock will help you undervolt, and ammend a few CPU settings, and HWMonitor will give the temps of CPU, ACPI, GPU and HDD. Download both :)

    Thanks Andy ...

    The free RMClock will identify the CPU , but no CPU core temp ...
    The good part with the RMClock are that it read .. the microchip , of my new battery , and gave me good details about it . :)

    Moving again for the next target HWMonitor ..

    The free version of RMClock shows everything to me, and it very well supports Pentium Ms.

    The problem are that they are not backwards compatible.

    The HWmonitor works .. but i get two values as CPU temp ...
    one high and one low ... and i do not know what to speculate as Core temp .

    TZS0 = 52C
    TZS1 = 46C

    This could be motherboard and CPU sensors .
    I can only imagine , that the low value are due the active cooling, so it must be the CPU core temp .

    I need some testing so to find out what are what .. :confused:

    Well it looks that the Delphi
    prophecy was wrong :D

    The HWmonitor TZS0 sensor are the core temp...

    I run CPU burn-in software , and jumped at 70C - 157F
    Environment temp 30C , system idles at 50-52C .


    Screen shot of the RMClock ... yes in few minutes .

    those 2 temps are the 2 cores..

    each core inside the CPU has a temp sensor,

    also RMCLOCK works great for monitoring MY CPU, now i admit i have no experience with the CPU you are dealing with,, but below you will see a thumbnail of my current RMCLOCK as it is monitoring things 2 minutes ago.. when the pic was taken..

    and i'm pretty sure there is even an option to have the temp shown in the systray


    glad you caused me to look at that PIC a second time... somehow my under volting got turned off...
    must reboot,, then i'll add a pic w/ the voltage @ 0.950 (the minimum RMClock allows with this CPU)

    EDIT: just added second PIC showing 10x multiplier at 0.95volts.... and core temps for my cpus... dees the pentium M not have a built-in temp sensor?? that may be why you are having a hard time monitoring it,, most of the newer software is looking for that info from the CPU's internal sensor (i think that's how it works)

    I guess RMClock gets confused when confronted with two Thermal Zone Sensors....:D

    Well i am a poor man , and i have only one, and precious core .. :D

    But this proggy will not show the temp .

    I am starting to believe that the author of this software , at the times of Pentium M , he was still in high school , chasing girls . ;)

    Thats why i have lack of support for my CPU .

    i bet you may be right.... heck, he may still be in college chasing skirts....
    sorry to hear that that doesn't work for you..

    there is a 3rd party app made for DELL laptop fan speed control, that might suite your needs... it's worked on all acers we have tested so far (only works for temperature monitoring,, nothing i have found will allow users to control ACER's fan speed...) I8KFANGUI

    *** maybe we could run 12 to a POT and then feed the output to the fan***

    OH, maybe you should do a bit of research on the Pentium M compatibility.
    But I do remember seeing Pentium Ms being undervolted in the Undervolting Guide. Try a BIOS upgrade. (But I think you already have the latest)

    ACPI temps are accurate since they have been acquired from the ACPI thermal tables in the windows registry which are related to the BIOS. Try undervolting, you can check out Notebook Hardware Control as well. It is compatible with almost all intel CPUs.

    P Ms are compatible with RMClock

    Undervolting Guide ?

    Some sort of software control for the voltage of the CPU ...

    I will get to it , but does this have to do, for running a bit cooler the CPU ..?

    No i do not have interest controlling the fan .
    Now that i know who is the core temp sensor , i started to use speedfan.
    And after a bit of tweaking , i got the right temp on tray . ;)




    :D
