I am having trouble locating a utility to monitor the CORE, not cover, but core temperature of the CPU. If cover temperature is all I can get, than I will work with it, but I need some way of monitoring how hot my CPU is running.

Have you tried motherboard monitor?

I am not aware of any programs that will read the core temperature due to the fact that the temperature sensor is on the MB so all you will get is the case temperature.
I have been talking to AMD in an attempt to get a formula for assessing core temperature and the best they can suggest is to add 15-20 degrees C to the case temperature reading. They also say that the absolute maximum core temperature for AMD XP chips is 90C so I have set my case reading alarm to 60C with shutoff at 65C.
Hope this helps.

That does help. But the second problem I as having was finding any software at all that could even use the temperature sensor. So if you know of any software taht would do it, then I could estimate the CPU temp from the case reading.

Just a thought after downloading all the config info for the Dell Pre 330, does the motherboard even present some form of temp monitoring? No monitoring circuitry usually means no monitoring period. I did notice that the desktop and tower models do offer hard drive temp probes. Just a thought.

Hi Adam, the motherboard MUST have the sensor inbuilt. If yours has this then a program called motherboard monitor 5.08 will do the job for you. It is available from most utility sites including ZNet downloads

Unfourtunatly, that particular software package does not operate with the sensors packaged with our Dells.
