Temperature Sensors

Post by hpmc13 »

I've really confused myself on this. I have a conky that shows me, among other things, various temperatures of my components. I thought that I had this all sorted out, but I don't think that I do. While the "sensors" command gives good info, I'm not sure where everything lines up. Here's a shot of it:

Code: Select all

f71869a-isa-0e80
Adapter: ISA adapter
+3.3V:        +3.33 V  
in1:          +0.89 V  
in2:          +0.00 V  
in3:          +0.00 V  
in4:          +0.00 V  
in5:          +0.90 V  
in6:          +1.12 V  
3VSB:         +3.20 V  
Vbat:         +3.25 V  
fan1:        2290 RPM
fan2:        1316 RPM
fan3:           0 RPM  ALARM
temp1:        +25.0°C  (high = +255.0°C, hyst = +251.0°C)  ALARM (CRIT)
temp2:        +38.0°C  (high = +255.0°C, hyst = +247.0°C)  ALARM
temp3:        +33.0°C  (high = +255.0°C, hyst = +253.0°C)  ALARM (CRIT)

fam15h_power-pci-00c4
Adapter: PCI adapter
power1:       95.01 W  (crit =  95.01 W)

k10temp-pci-00c3
Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1:        +14.6°C  (high = +70.0°C)
                       (crit = +85.0°C, hyst = +83.0°C)
I thought that Temp2 was the CPU, but I'm really second-guessing myself, and now I think that it's the last bit under k10temp-pci-00c3.
Is there a way to tell what each of these relates to? In the conkyrc file, it's calling ${hwmon 0 temp 1} and so on, but I'm not clear on what I'm really looking at. Also, isn't 14.6C really low for a CPU?

Thanks is advance.

Go to "Synaptic Package Manager"

Search "'psensor"

install psensor

Sit back and watch a nice line graph describe your system temperatures. 8)

Thanks!

PSensor did confirm that I was incorrect in the first place. After a whole lot of DuckDuckGoing, I figured out how to get CPU temps in conky. Added this line:

Code: Select all

${execi 5 sensors | grep ^temp1 | tail -n 1 | awk '{print $2}'}
and all is well.

Thanks again for the reply.
