I see that Speedfan 4.29 now has this feature:
Just tried it and it seems to work fine.
great so this is CoreTemp equivalent now
can you run CoreTemp and this software side by side and see if they report the same........wouldn't hurt to see MBM5 in there as well to see what the mobo sensor says
i still trust coretemp more..........looks like speedfan is just reading motherboard sensors
It does work for me. My temp is fluctuating ~3c up/down. For the most part they're reading the same core temp. Not sure why it isn't working on your dual core.
edit: oh it only supports it on AMD?
Nice to see.
Thanx for the update
I get the same reading from CoreTemp and Speedfan 4.29. Speedfan seems to follow Core 1 temp from CoreTemp.
It does say for K8 chips (AMD) only, so I assume on Intel it will be using the standard mobo sensor.
yeah that's true actually
what confused me was this hehehe...first line about Intel chipset so i just assumed it might do the same for intel lol
Hopefully 4.30 will support the internal temp sensor on Intel CPUs - it can't be that much different to AMD.
MBM5 puts speedfan to shame.
Pity it is no longer being developed
I think that just means the newer ICH8 MCH (Northbridge) temperature is picked up for Intel boards. It is the equivalent of the chipset temp for AMD K8 platforms. I also see the Intel southbridge IT8712F listed also.
Unless Core 2 Duo support is listed you won't see Intel's internal sensor supported. This is because only Conroe chips have the internal sensor that can be read. Don't confuse a temp diode with a temp sensor though. The diode is read by a sensor, they are not the same thing. Pre conroe chips still had an internal diode and sensor (obviously for overheat protection) but temp data could not be externally transmitted from this as far as I know. A separate diode is used and is read by a motherboard sensor.
If anyone else was wondering i can also very it working on my system in my sig. (looks like it supports negative temps as well)
wow i never thought my core temp was so high, 56c with a Shuttle SFF Panaflo 80mm on slow setting lol
Looks like its reading the correct core temp...

Speedfan reads similar temps relative to the coretemp software. So I use speedfan now as it reports a bunch of other stuff.
I still have to have the /nosmbscan for it to work with my Manta MB.
