I have a Toshiba P25-S607.  Are there any applications that are capable of displaying one or both of CPU and motherboard temperatures?  in the tray?

MBM5 claims this ability http://mbm.livewiredev.com/

But I have all but given up on finding the relevant settings to make it play nicely.  I have tried all the close seeming Toshiba models and I only end up with 32F displayed for both stats.  :(

>> Where does it say that?

when I install- and run the program two gauges appear in the tray.   Perhaps "claims" was not the most apt word.

@SheharyaarSaahil

Yes, that's the tool.

>> Temperatures in System Tray

Yes.  But I'm sure this isn't accurate:

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

Then Why do you need both CPU's temp being reported? It is not necessary. The temp that is being reporeted is the highest of the two. What more so you need? Come on be realistic what purpose do you think you will gain by having both reported? The highest temp is the most important overall and that is what is reported.

Why do you think it isn't accurate? Geesh you want the best of both worlds. Take the high temp from the following

Woohoo I think the best tool for you is MOBMETER, do not look any further :

http://www.geocities.co.jp/SiliconValley-Oakland/8259/release/0310/mm0310.zip

It even shows the discharge rate - so the amount power your notebook is actually consuming.

>> Why do you think it isn't accurate?

Because water freezes at 32F.  Aside from that: it NEVER varies from 32F.


The CPUID features suggests that at least one can be monitored


CPUID CPU Name      Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz
CPUID Revision      0F29h
IA Brand ID      09h (Intel Pentium 4A)
Platform ID      0Fh (Socket 478)
      
      
CPUID Features      

Self-Snoop      Supported
Thermal Monitor      Supported
Thermal Monitor 2      Not Supported


Though I did finally stumble over Everest:Computer:Sensor

      
Temperatures      
TOSHIBA MK6022GAX/a      25 °C  (77 °F)
TOSHIBA MK6022GAX/b      50 °C  (122 °F)

^^ considerably different from frozen water ;)



http://www.sciencemark.org/ is interesting.  I imagine you shared it as a way to increase CPU temperature to verify stats monitoring was working.


Great, so everest can show me the CPU temperature.   Now I only need to sort out how to get (near)realtime stats in the tray, or floating somewhere.  I'll start a new question for that.

oh, wait, no.  Google suggests that the MK6022GAX that Everest uncovered if for hard drives

http://www.google.com/search?q=MK6022GAX

So I'm back to square one
