5. Determine If There Are Thermal Problems in CPU Cores With TMonitor
The makers of CPU-Z present another interesting piece of software that lets you see if your thermal layout is really making the best for your CPU. Ever since the Intel Core series came out, computers no longer needed meticulous cooling setups to sustain their workload. When the CPU reaches a temperature it can’t handle, the affected core simply slows its clock down and doesn’t fire up an alert. Your computer will work, but more slowly. If you want to get the most out of your CPU, you need efficient cooling, just like you did with the old ones. TMonitor helps you find out whether your computer is really working at its full potential or not. Coupled with Prime95, you can test this yourself.
