windows 7 gadgets

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
i am curious to what people think of the accuracy of these windows desktop gadgets? mostly the CPU gadget paired with core temp?

http://addgadget.com/

Also, after watching this, i have noticed that Core 0 seems to do the most work, is this normal?

Thanks

It's normal. If you have software that activates all cores you will see how they all start to work.

I use the one in the OP, seems legit since its in perfect sync with what coretemp tells me.

I found that too with temps, my temps are fine BTW.

thanks everyone

i got some room with RAM to play with so I added numerous gadgets to monitor everything from CPU, drives, thru to weather and currency fx rates.

So yeah I also found that the CPU meter seems to be in snc with CPUID CPU-Z in regards to clock speed.

pretty much i just didnt realise that Core 0 tends to do most the work.
