Question CPU Temp monitoring software

People tell me AMD Ryzen Master is the only reliable way to measure the temp for my AMD 3600x. Is this true? The software is so big and bulky and can't be resized small on the screen. I also dont need to look at all the other settings 24/7, only monitoring temps.

I also want to monitor my GPU temps at the same time with a basic software.

I have HWMonitor by CPUID, but people tell me that its not accurate for CPU temps.

What options do we have?

What you need to keep in mind that you don't want the peak temperature of some highly temporary hotspots (something that occurs regularly in Ryzen 3000 chips) but the average temperature of the package. Different monitoring software adapted what they display after AMD did the changes to Ryzen Master. Looking it up, HWiNFO version 6.15-4020 Beta (and later versions) did that. I'm sure other people can chime in with other examples.

Try Open Hardware Monitor at openhardwaremonitor.org. It works great for my Intel processors and says it works for AMD also. It also has a sizable gadget function.
