What's the best monitoring tool for an AMD N660

I've been using Core Temp 1.0 on my Aspire 5251 Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit SP1 but would like to know what you think would be a better choice. Core Temp doesn't correctly show the second core in it's GUI or logs.

  1. other monitoring programs:
    hwmonitor, speedfan, speccy, gpu-z, cpu-z.
  2. Thanks! I will use CPUID HWMonitor, that is the one you are talking about, correct?

    All this is coming about from upgrading an AMD V120 to the N660 and suspecting heat issues per the logs from Core Temp. Within a couple minutes it said I went from about 62c Speed 800 to 97c Speed 3000 on core 0, core 1 shows blank but I can tell it was the source in comparing highs!

    So, I'm looking for a better tool before I start looking at Event Logs to see what bumped the sudden speed while idling.

    I've never dealt with upgrades before so have never looked at things like this. Is this my best bet, to look at the event logs of Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit SP1 and see what started at the same time the processor speed suddenly bumped up during idle time?

    I'm wishing to not have to go back to the old CPU if I don't have to.

    During normal use, the temp fluctuates in the 50's & 60's.
  3. for event log (3rd party software)
