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
Applies To: Windows 10, Windows 11
Here’s the links to each program’s website:
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 refers to it as a Junction Temperature or TJunction – the maximum temperature allowed at the processor die.
AMD will list the MAX TEMPS for each CPU.
Above 80°C or 176°F is generally not ideal.

Hi ! MSI Afterburner only monitors GPU, as I see it.
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.
