Sure, if you can make it work with your hardware, and occasionally it
works here when the cli program "sensors" doesn't, is "gkrellm",
which sits on your screen near an edge and reports that, and a lot
more stuff if you configure it to do so, all in real time. My cpu is
currently running at 131.2F for example. Actually in runs pretty
steady at that because both einstein and seti are running here,
essentially keeping my cpu at 100%, but they are niced at 19, so I
don't feel them in my useage at all.
