How accurate is RealTemp?
RealTemp is reading tjmax directly from cpu, then reading distance from tjmax directly from cpu. So the temp it displays is as accurate as intel calibrated it, as it is simply reading the temp directly from cpu. At high end temps will be very accurate since intel calibrated the sensors at high end.
What is the real Temp?
Real Temp is a temperature monitoring program designed for all Intel single Core, Dual Core, Quad Core and Core i7 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.
How do I use RealTemp?
What system Temp is too high?
Above 80 degrees C (176 degrees F) is too hot and could cause damage to your computer if you run it for a sustained period. Beyond this, you should shut down your PC and let it completely cool down.
