editor's review






Real Temp is a compact and portable software utility designed for power PC users, which has a very simple purpose: it monitors the processor temperature to help you prevent hardware overheating by taking immediate action, such as turning off the computer. It features benchmarks and several handy customization settings.

No installation necessary

There is no setup pack involved, so you can drop the program files in any part of the hard disk and just click the executable to launch the app. Another possibility is to save Real Temp to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any PC easily. Plus, it does not create new entries in the Windows registry or Start menu.

Clear-cut interface with live readings

The main window does not include visually appealing elements but it is simple to navigate. It shows the current processor temperature and difference from maximum value, minimum and maximum reading recorded and time of recording, along with the thermal status.

Run sensor benchmarks and customize rich settings

It is possible to perform sensor tests to find out the average CPU load and difference from the maximum temp, time, speed and score. As far as customization settings are concerned, you can calibrate the maximum temperature, enable system tray icons for monitoring the CPU cores and maximum temp, enable alarms, log all activity to file, and more. Settings may be restored to default.

Evaluation and conclusion

Real Temp has minimal impact on system resources and a great response time. It shows accurate data and worked well in our tests, without triggering the OS to hang, crash or pop up error messages. Thanks to its advanced options and versatile range of customization settings, Real Temp should meet the requirements of most users looking for a straightforward tool for monitoring processor temperature. Too bad it does not come equipped with automated tasks in case of overheating, such as PC shutdown.
