I have a widget (istat pro) that shows me the CPU temp and some other cool stats. When i use bootcamp to run windows id also like to see that info, is there a program to do it with?

Thanks,
Bas

I haven't found one that was consistent. Apple's motherboards (logic board) are proprietary and most temperature and CPU readout software that are for Windows do not properly pick up all the sensors. Some sensors read out OK, most don't.

You really don't need to know the CPU temp anyway. When running games from Windows (dual boot) you'll be able to hear the fans ramp up. If the machine gets too hot, it'll shut down automatically.

I know its not necessary but i still use my old macbook for games and my new one for work. It shutsdown when i play games so i bought a cooling pad yesterday and it seems to work but i'm just interested in how much it actually works.

If there is no propper working solution i'll just be happy with knowing that it works, thanks.
