Default CoreTemp 0.96.1

Intel and AMD recently published detailed, public information about the "DTS" (Digital Thermal Sensor), which provides much higher accuracy and more relevant temperature reading than the standard thermal diode sensors do. (How it works).

This feature is supported on all Intel Core and Core 2 based processors as well as the whole AMD's Athlon64 line of CPUs. For a full list of supported CPUs see the CPU Support List.
Note: AMD Phenom is supported, but it does not report absolute temperature. More on this in How it works.

Core Temp also has a logging feature, allowing a user to easily record the temperature of his processor(s) over any period of time, then the data can be easily transfered into an excel datasheet for easy graphing.

Core Temp works on Windows 2000, XP and 2003 (both 32bit and 64bit versions). Windows Vista 32bit is fully supported.

Version 0.96.1 - 15th January, 2008

- Add: Support for Phenom and ''Barcelona'' Opteron.
- Add: Support all K8 processors.
- Add: Support Intel Celeron M 500 series.

- Fix: Wrong CPU speed on Intel ES chips.
- Fix: Fix M0 Tjunction max detection.
- Fix: Intel QX6850 CPU\'s rating shown as QX6650.
- Fix: Intel E6550 CPU\'s rating shown as E6650.
- Fix: Intel Celeron M 400 series detected incorrectly.
- Fix: AMD Opteron for Socket AM2 reported as Santa Rosa instead of Santa Ana.

Nice. I keep my E6600 at 3.6 GHz, and it stays pretty cool.

I wish they would get Pentium support with that program. I have a Pentium D Dual Core 925 @ 3.0 GHz, but want a low profile temp sensor.

Well... At least I have Everest, which works quite well. Its just not really "Low profile."
