Thread: Cpu and gpu temp

  1. #1

    Default Cpu and gpu temp

    Greetings everyone.

    I would like to ask you if you know a program that can show the current cpu's and gpu's temperatures.

    I would like to thank you in advance
    Regards
    Alex

    you need to have installed sensors and libsensors4 (I believe) and the a program to display the data generated - I use gKrellm but there are other apps that display the data such as conky, various plasmoids (KDE) and computertemp (Gnome)
    openSUSE Leap 42.1 x64, Plasma 5 & KDE 4.14.x, pretty current proprietary Nvidia drivers (self-compiled)

    Thanks a lot . I tried syhstem monitod widget in Kde.
    First thing is that gives me temperatures in Farad and not in celcius. Moreover it doesnot say if the temperature is from cpu or gpu.

    There are four temperatures depicted
    like
    1. lmsensors/acpitz/temp2
    2. lmsensors/acpitz/temp1
    3. acpi/thermal_zone/TZS1/temperature
    4. acpi/thermal_zone/TSZ0/temperature

    Don't know what cpu, but in a terminal as normal user, try command line: acpi -V

    The result should include a cpu temp reading.

    those are cpu temps, I assume you have a dual core therefore there are 2 temps but I forget the reason for the 2 diff sets of results (might just be duplicates as "acpitz" sounds a lot like "acpi/thermal_zone"

    just type: sensors

    at the bottom you'll see:

    CPU Temperature: +40.5C (high = +60.0C, crit = +95.0C)
    MB Temperature: +39.0C (high = +45.0C, crit = +95.0C)

    for gpu you might need a different widget that displays gpu - try System Monitor KDE-Look.org or Yasp-Scripted (Systemmonitor) v1.0.6 KDE-Look.org

    If you have an nVidia GPU, installing the nVidia configuration software (I have both the regular and "dock" installed) will display GPU temp (and suggest what is the normal range).

    Other GPU OEM may similarly provide software.

    11.3: sensors command works, but

    Code:
    vodoo@myhost:~> acpi -V -c
    No support for device type: battery
    No support for device type: thermal
    No support for device type: ac_adapter

    From my notebook:
    Code:
         Battery 1: charged, 97%
         Thermal 1: ok, 35.0 degrees C
      AC Adapter 1: on-line
    Oops, my bad recall, thought it gave temp result on desktop PC, but same "No support for" result also on mine. In any case, OP didn't specify machine type.

    hi,

    sensors-detect is a script that will help you loading needed modules. so as root run:

    Code:
    sensors-detect
    and answer every question with yes.

    then restart, and try the command

    Code:
    sensors
    post the output of it.

    FYI - I just installed the sensors package and it resulted only in detecting the CPU temp sensor.
    As noted earlier, on my machine I've installed the nVidia management software which is able to also detect and report GPU temp.
