Hardware monitoring

XE Product imageBE Product imageEE Product image

In this window, we can configure the hardware monitoring services.


Display temperatures in Fahrenheit

In the sensor icons, the OSD panel, the Desktop Gadget and the SensorPanel, temperature values are displayed in Fahrenheit (rather than Celsius) when this option is enabled.

Enable CPU throttling measurement

This option can be used to enable CPU throttling measurement on Intel processors. Measuring throttling may cause system instability. Throttling is a self-protection mechanism in Intel processors to prevent physical damage due to overheating.

Enable disk temperature measurement

Here we can enable or disable disk temperature monitoring.

Disk temperature polling frequency

With this option, we can configure the interval between disk temperature measurements. Setting this option to less than 20 seconds may result in data corruption on older hard disk drives. For modern HDDs and SSDs, it is safe to enter any value of our choice.

Decimal digits for voltage values

With this option, we can set the number of decimal digits to be displayed for voltage readings. For modern computers, selecting at least 3 digits is recommended.

Decimal digits for clock speeds

With this option, we can set the number of decimal digits to be displayed for clock speeds, e.g. CPU core clock, FSB clock and memory clock.

Tjmax temperature

With this option, we can set the Tjmax temperature that is used to calculate core temperature readings for Intel processors. When “Automatic” is selected, AIDA64 will use the default values as defined in the Intel Digital Thermal Sensors (DTS) specifications.

Degree symbol

With this option, we can configure the character to be used as a degree symbol for temperature readings.
