I'm looking at checking the temperature of my laptop, as sometimes it gets a bit warm (Mainly just when gaming though), but just 10 minutes ago it completely froze up while I was watching something on Twitch.


I don't know if something is overheating or it was just unlucky, but figured I'd look into the temperature at least.


From my understanding, I can't check the temperature without downloading a program? If that's the case, what do you recommend? Bonus points if it can tell the temperature history as well (EG: Before my laptop just froze), although I'm assuming it can't be done.

if you toggle Log Sensors under Options, it will automatically save all sensor data as a function of time to a dated file in the directory the executable is in. The logging interval can be set as well. You can also use the Plot function to visualize your data as they are being recorded.

I find HWInfo better for temperatures than Open Hardware Monitor, particularly disk temperatures. Either will be fine for basic temp checks.

Send private message quote this post can show your your HDD/SSD temps as well. I use that along with HWinfo for complete system overview on my home server.

If your laptop is over a year or two old it'd be worth it to look at how to re-paste the CPU/chipset, they're high susceptible to decaying paste causing airgaps, as well as blowing out any dust from the cooling assembly. 

Just be wary to stop the fans spinning while you clean them!!!
