How to get multi core cpu temp reading?

hi. I am running 4 cores atm and cannot get a cpu temp read on everest home edition and siw. I was told it might be due to the multiple cores. Does anyone know how to get a temp read without relocking the cores?

thanks! :wahoo:

More about multi core temp reading
  1. You could try Realtemp 3.40 and or Coretemp they're both free.
    I'm sure i've read somewhere on the forum here that unlocked AMD cpu's won't give accurate temps or the 4th core won't be displayed.
    Something to that effect anyways.
    I'm sure an informed AMD user will elaborate more on the subject.
  2. thanks!

    now waiting for the informed amd user :pt1cable:

    ^ +1 Correct, with ACC enabled you will not have core readings, only cpu socket temp. I know with HWMonitor cpu socket temp should be listed as TMPIN0 or TMPIN1 depending on your MB.

    are core temps and cpu socket temp pretty similar? what can i conclude from a cpu socket temp reading?
  5. I locked my proc back up and observed my core temps in relation to socket readings. My core temps are 10c cooler than the socket temp at idle and 5c cooler at load. You should be able to get an idea how much heat is increased by activating an additional core(s). You might conclude that socket temps are safe core temps.
