How to Check Your CPU Temperature

Checking your PC’s CPU temperature is like checking the oil in your car. You don’t have to do it every day, but you should check your processor temperature every few months. This is especially true if you regularly load your system with heavy loads as you would with a CPU that is best suited for gaming, or if you are an enthusiast who overclocks your CPU. Ultimately, keeping the CPU temperature under control improves performance and reliability.

Luckily, it’s easy to check your CPU temperature without having to open your PC and stick a thermometer inside. Instead, all CPUs have a built-in digital temperature sensor, so all you need is software to read the readings on Windows 10, Windows 11, and other operating systems.
