MSR Tools is a thermal sensor program. Copy it to your HD for it to run properly. Can anyone modify this app to read all 4 cores instead of 2? Thanks.

Works great on my C2D (ok, the first values are not shown).
And its much more than only an thermal sensor :D MHZ values and mVolt values are also shown right!
THANKS!
I would also post that in the speedstep Thread (superhai) - also useful there.
At the screenshoot you see the menue with vales from speedtesp/CPUMConrol (both superhai).

No problem...glad it helped you. Now if only someone can get this to read the other 2 cores for the quads. :P

What's the source of this? (wants admin passwd)

Also seems to occasionally go to 100% cpu utilization making the system completely non-responsive (reboot needed).

Works here. But, as FavleX said, it occasionaly loads CPU at 100% and system becomes unresponsive.
Is there any other way to read CPU temperatures?

I've already tried Temperature Monitor (also installing it's Additional x86 Drivers), but it doesn't work too.

I decided to test it, even though I assumed it wouldnt work on AMD, and as expected: kernel panic... ;)

Us AMD users really need a program that can measure temperature, there is nothing that works properly.

Works fine for me, no issues so far. It reports that I have speedstep enabled though my clock speed/voltage never actually gets reduced...

Of all the screenshots posted, unless you were actually doing something demanding while running MSRTools, Speedstepping seems to be working only for Goron, Mitch and myself. More information on how to get it working in this thread:

Thanks , really unique tool i am using with 10.5.
But i always have the problem of freezing (kernel cpu overload) after some time (specially if i run an app / bench).
I posted this to the link above. Would be fine if that freeze problem could be fixed if the source would be available and some heros look in that.
I believe the problem must be in the .kext of msr not the main app.

That SL version (link last post) seems to work also on 10.5.
