Following instructions over here, I tried to get something running to show the temperature of my AMD A6 6400K. Unfortunately, the output I get is the following:
TurionPowerControl 0.44-rc2 (export) Turion Power States Optimization and Control - by blackshard Detected processor: Family 15h (Bulldozer/Interlagos/Valencia) Processor Machine has 1 nodes Processor has 1 cores Processor has 7 p-states Processor has 2 boost states Processor temperature slew rate:9.0°C Temperature table: Node 0 C0:0 Done.
This doesn't tell me anything, unfortunately, and lm-sensors also shows an unrealistic temperature reading near freezing point, when the BIOS reports an idle temperature of about 30 degrees (C). The temperature readout from byobu also shows unrealistic temperatures of about 10 degrees.
So either I'm doing something wrong, I perhaps I need to find another program. Any suggestions?
I'm trying to figure out why the computer freezes after a few minutes of GPU-intensive work (GPU built into CPU), but I can't tell if it's the temperature or not, since I have no readouts.
