Temperature Monitor is a special software that provide you the detailed condition of your computer temperature including processor and system curent temperature under Mac OS X. With this Temperature Monitor 4.7 you can set when your computer should be shut down to avoid over heating.
I repair laptop some times and need to check or monitor CPU or GPU temperature sometimes but dont want to install windows for that. In Windows I use cpu temp or other software. Can I check temperature with Linux mint or Ubuntu o Fedora anyway?
Psensor is a graphical hardware temperature monitor for Linux.
It can monitor:
the temperature of the motherboard and CPU sensors (using lm-sensors).
the temperature of the NVidia GPUs (using XNVCtrl).
the temperature of the Hard Disk Drives (using hddtemp).
the rotation speed of the fans (using lm-sensors)
First step is to install lm-sensors:
sudo apt-get install lm-sensors
Overheating may become serious enough to cause permanent damage on your hardware. So watch out for any overheating issue in your system. Even better, have temperature monitoring system in place, so that you will be alerted if system temperature suddenly goes up. This tutorial describes how to monitor system temperature on Linux.
I decided to monitor my CPU temperature as I game and noticed Psensor showed a temperature for my 2 cores but no temperature for the entire chipset. I tried configuring lm-sensors and accepting every single scan it did but nothing added.
