MSAcpi_ThermalZoneTemperature. Wheres the download?
Comment #2 Friday, April 13, 2007 10:30 AM
There is nothing to download to make MSAcpi_ThermalZoneTemperature work, its just a procedure call in windows.

--- Have been told this wont work in vista ---

Updated the C/F Font to plain old Tahoma.
There is a link above for the DigiFace Font
Added the Critical Trip Point into the Tool tip.

If you want to see how this WMI component works:

WMI Info

Im not sure if this is avail in Vista, maybe under a different name or key, not sure.

This should work in XP without loading anything.

Great widget Roman however, I can't get it to switch from C to F. I double clicked it like the mouseover says but it won't switch. �
Comment #6 Friday, April 13, 2007 2:42 PM

Excelent widget! However I am stuck as to enabling the thermometer..
Comment #8 Friday, April 13, 2007 8:42 PM
there is nothing to "enable" it reads information from the windows System, it may not work on every system. And it may not work on Vista, if its reading a value then its working.

Downloaded your widget; displays temperature fine in C degrees but clicking singly or double clicking will not yield Farenheit value....try diffrent combinations of clicks (single, double, triple) and cannot change C to F
Comment #10 Friday, April 13, 2007 9:14 PM
Ok, i have the answer.. will upload a new version in a little.
Comment #11 Friday, April 13, 2007 9:15 PM
Not working at all here. Tried clearing widget cache, re-downloading, restarting,reboot and set to run at atartup. All it does is sit there, with no thermometer showing, no left or right-click response. No trip-point tooltip. Only says 36.5, in green, and CPU Temp on top. What? XP PRO, SP2, P4 1.4, 512 RAMBUS RAM, ATI RADION X700 PRO 256 MB...

Wow, never had one of my comments dissappear before. Anyway, it works fine. Click once and wait to change from F to C. The gadget updates every 30 seconds. Nice work Roman.�

Sorry.. thought i fixed the delay on the C/F thing.. will upload a new ver at some point this week... im working 16 hr days.
Comment #14 Friday, April 20, 2007 6:27 PM
Hmm, just deleted it and will try again. Too cool to miss, if it'll just work for me...

O. K. ... works now: "117.5" and a green thermometer.


I am! Thanks, Maestro. ���

I've been waiting for this type of Widget anxiously. I've got an Intel D975XBX Motherboard, which was their flagship motherboard up to about a month ago. I'm getting the 117.5 reading, and it never changes. When I use Intel's Desktop Utilities, that program reports around 127 to 131 and it fluxuates pretty regularly. So Seldomseen, may also be getting a false reading. Does the widget defautl to 117.5 farenheit if I can't find the WMI hook?

Still kudos to you on this RomanDA.
Comment #16 Monday, April 23, 2007 3:23 AM
Yep. Nothing changes... Maybe I'll cross-check with MotherboardMonitor, if I reinstall it. Have to see if my WIN XP PRO XP2 still has the Desktop Utilities system info. I may have scragged it since I built this thing in 2002 or thereabouts. My MB is an Intel 850D as I recall. Have to check this out. Thanks, NetBadger!

erm...would a meat thermometer work? Rectal? old Mazda temp guage?
...didn't think so...

Congrats for the feature and thanks
Comment #18 Monday, April 23, 2007 3:02 PM
Great widget, however on my HP Nx9420 duo core, it runs an shows a temp of 20 c.
Notebook Hardware control with ACPI enabled, shows TZ0 temp of 48 c
TZ1 - 48

I don't see 20 c anywhere in NHC. I also can't get a reliable answer to which TZ zone in NHC is my CPU temp.

I've tried running an intensive CPU program and watch which one climbs to no avail.

So I'm wondering which is correct?

In my opinion, the best, small application (not Everest) is SpeedFan (free program). Why don't you try to link up with the guy who makes it and come up with a gadget with more indicators and that works without fail? I'm sorry to say this, but your gadget does not access the probes correctly. You have probably have designed the gadget too narrowly. (All of the other major programs that access the probes have no problem with my motherboard and system.)

I have been looking for something like this and it is right on target with what my AMD Dashboard is showing! Thank you!!!
