If you are using an Intel based processor, then Real Temp should be of help. Real Temp is a temperature monitoring program designed for all Intel single Core, Dual Core and Quad Core processors. Each core on these processors has a digital thermal sensor (DTS) that reports temperature data relative to TjMax which is the safe maximum operating core temperature for the CPU. Real Temp monitors these temperatures, VID, CPUID and Calibration settings of the processors.

Real Temp

The application does not require any installation and is fully portable. When you execute the utility, it shows the current temperature and the distance to TjMax, the maximum temp allowed. You can calibrate and change the options in the settings page.
