Temperature from command line

To find out the temperature, use:

# Ivybridge Intel i7-3630QM
$ cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/temp

# Skylake Intel i7-6700HQ using paste after zone names
$ paste <(cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/type) <(cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/temp) | column -s $'\t' -t
INT3400 Thermal  20000
SEN1             53000
SEN2             49000
SEN3             53000
SEN4             55000
pch_skylake      70000
B0D4             47000
x86_pkg_temp     48000

Temperature with Conky

Within conky the system variable I used to monitor an Ivy Bridge CPU is:

${hwmon 2 temp 1}°C

To monitor a Skylake CPU I initially used:

${hwmon 0 temp 1}°C

A few months later (possibly due to new kernel) on the same Skylake CPU I switched to:

${hwmon 1 temp 1}°C

The display looks like this:

Conky Temperature 4.8.10
