Any chance we can see individual core temps in an updated version, something like what the Add to Gadgets clone is doing?

so, why you don't use the gadgets clone as it has the option?

because yours is better looking, and I have been using that one for years.. Needed a change. Was just curious if that would be possible in an update..

I got you stuff looking sick..

you've made it looks very interesting. Good job.

As to Core temps, there is a "little" problem with measuring CPU Cores temps. As you can see in the Gadgets, every second temp. has the same value. That's because of the fact that 1 multithreaded Core has only one physical core and one temp sensor, while multithreading means just logical cores. So it shares temp. value of a physical core to both logical cores.

In other words, software based cores (logical ones) are there to utilize and improve efficiency of the real physical cores. So something that is not physical cannot have any sensor. Thus i avoid to add the option so far as it would probablly make more resource waste that use for us.

Even if i'd make the option for every third core (1,3,5...), some CPUs don't have multithreading ability built in so it would be a pretty bad solution for them. A big hassle.

Fair enough, I appreciate you taking the time to respond thank you sir. Big ups on this project I am digging it's minimalism and configurability.
