When you want to reach the max out of your CPU, you also have to monitor the temperature. To do that you need an application that can monitor your CPU. The best program for this is Core Temp RC7, which we use ourselves as standard on all our Windows-Host Servers, or gaming rigs that we build to be overclocked.
As it’s pretty hard to find the latest version we saved it on our server so that you can download it directly. We tested it on Windows 8.1 and it works flawlessly.
