Piriform updated Speccy and added temperature sensor output for the system tray. This means that Speccy will display the temperature when minimized to the tray.

On Tuesday, June 18th, Piriform announced that it rolled out a Speccy update to the public. As you can see from the release notes at the bottom, the latest version, version 1.2.535, comes with several new features. Chief among them is temperature sensor output for the system tray display. If you choose to minimize Speccy to the system tray, you can set it so the application will display the temperature of the CPU, motherboard, graphics card, or hard drives.

Here is what you have to do to enjoy this new feature. First up, you must access the Options menu. You can do so from the View menu at the top.



Then you have to go to the Advanced tab and select “Minimize to tray” and “Display metrics in the tray".



Next up you must choose what temperature will be displayed in tray. The temperature for the CPU, motherboard, graphics, or hard drives.



When you’re done, close the Options menu, and minimize Speccy. You’ll see that the temperature will be displayed in the system tray.




In this case, it is displayed in Celsius degrees; you can switch to Fahrenheit if you want to.



And you can easily change what metrics are presented in the system tray by right clicking the Speccy icon.



Here is the complete list of changes for the latest Speccy release, as provided by Piriform.
  • Added Temperature sensor output to System Tray

  • Added Graphics Card Manufacturer and Model information
  • Added support for newest Intel and AMD CPUs
  • Added MAC addresses to the Network section
