I have a Phenom X3-8450e which has a total of 3 cores. But when i ran "sensors" on a terminal this is what i get.

user@PC ~ $ sensors

atk0110-acpi-0
Adapter: ACPI interface
Vcore Voltage: +0.99 V (min = +0.85 V, max = +1.60 V)
+3.3 Voltage: +3.38 V (min = +2.97 V, max = +3.63 V)
+5 Voltage: +5.02 V (min = +4.50 V, max = +5.50 V)
+12 Voltage: +11.98 V (min = +10.20 V, max = +13.80 V)
CPU FAN Speed: 1985 RPM (min = 600 RPM, max = 7200 RPM)
CHASSIS FAN Speed: 0 RPM (min = 600 RPM, max = 7200 RPM)
POWER FAN Speed: 0 RPM (min = 600 RPM, max = 7200 RPM)
CPU Temperature: +32.0°C (high = +60.0°C, crit = +95.0°C)
MB Temperature: +27.0°C (high = +45.0°C, crit = +95.0°C)

As you can see it only displays "CPU Temperature: +32.0°C" but i would like to know the individual temperature or each core. How do i do that?
Thanks.

  • Looks like ACPI is reporting temperature for only one CPU. Can you check if BIOS setup is able to tell temperatures for each of the core? If not, there is nothing we can do here in software (perhaps BIOS firmware upgrade if available for your motherboard). If yes, you could try running sudo sensors-detect but I doubt it will help much. – sumwale Jul 20 '14 at 12:02

you can install these extra sensor tools

sudo apt-get install lm-sensors hddtemp libsensors4 xsensors

and then run

sudo sensors-detect

pay attention to the output and don't click yes to anything "risky"!
