Are you worried about your CPU’s temperature? Keeping track of your processor’s temperature is important to ensure it runs smoothly and doesn’t overheat. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to check your CPU’s temperature on Windows 11.
There are various paid and free programs available to monitor your processor’s temperature, such as Core Temp and MSI Afterburner. We recommend using MSI Afterburner as it is lightweight, free of bloatware, and provides additional metrics and custom settings.
To download MSI Afterburner, follow the link in the description or navigate to msi.com. Once you have downloaded the ZIP file, right-click and select “Extract All.” This will unpack the file into the same folder. Double-click the setup installer and follow the installation wizard to install the application on your system.
After installation, you will find a new shortcut on your desktop. Open the application to inspect your CPU’s temperature and other useful information about your system. Under the settings, you can change the voltage, clock speed, and fan limits and speed of your system.
In the monitoring settings tab, enable the “Show in tray icon” option to preview your CPU’s temperature in your system tray without having to open MSI Afterburner. You can also change the colour and text preview to a bar chart if you prefer this.
Under the user interface, you can change how Afterburner presents information by changing the user interface properties, layout, and design. If you encounter any issues while following this tutorial, we suggest following the extensive guide linked in the description.
We hope this tutorial has helped you monitor your CPU temperature. Leave a comment if you have any questions, and we’ll see you in the next one.
