CPU Temperature in Windows 10

Windows 10 doesn’t have a native way to check the CPU temperature, but there are many free third party programs that can show it to you

  • Coretemp
  • HWMonitor
  • OpenHardwareMonitor
  • Speedfan
  • NZXTCAM
  • Speccy
  • Rainmeter

Applies To: Windows 10


Here’s the links to each program’s website:

NZXTCAM

Speccy

Rainmeter

If you’re worried about your CPU overheating – the maximum CPU temperature really depends on the CPU. Look up what the ranges for your CPU are; CPUTemper have a good list here, or go to the manufacturer’s specifications:

Intel CPU List

Intel refers to it as a Junction Temperature or TJunction – the maximum temperature allowed at the processor die.

AMD CPU List

AMD will list the MAX TEMPS for each CPU.

Above 80°C or 176°F is generally not ideal.

    1. Nice pickup! I’ve installed and tested – although it will tell you the CPU details and the max temp, it won’t show the current temp. I’ll take it out of the list.
