Default [Info]Monitoring cpu temperature of S3 is now possible

Hi guys,

am just happy to share the news that "monitoring cpu temperature" now works on s3 with custom kernels.(not tested with stock)

a big thanks to @viking37 here for finding this


How to?

install system tuner pro along with notification package and enable it in settings to monitor the temperature on notification bar.
alternatively you can also use system tuner pro widgets to monitor it on your homescreen.


edit:

temp monitoring seems to be working with all kernels!

I find it very interesting:

                .start_mem_throttle = 85,

                .limit_2nd_throttle  = 200000, /* 200MHz in KHz order */
        },
};
#endif
Thank you for this find

First CPU temp limit before thermal throttling is at 80C then thermal throttling is stopped when the CPU reached a temp of 78C...
And the max temp that the CPU can handle is 120C before a kernel panic so I presume the CPU shutdown?

While benchmarking at 1.4Ghz, no overheat:



63C... There is still room before the first thermal throttling. And this is at the end of the bench (just a custom bench for the CPU)... I will do some tests at higher CPU freqs for see...
I think that this CPU does not heat that much.

System Tuner pro: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...LnBtdy5wcm8iXQ..

System Tuner "free": https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...2NjNzEucG13Il0.

Maybe there are other apps, I have not tested or searched yet...



I put the start of the discussion about the CPU temp from SiyahKernel's thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...09686&page=324 (from the middle of the page then the next pages).

As suggested by bala_gamer it would be great to know if the other custom kernels support it, it would be interesting to know.

Stressing the cpu for 3+ mins with stress cpu @ 1.5 ghz with uv bumps the temp upto 77c whereas 80 c is the throttle point.

Bala I'm quoting your post with the throttle temps and playing it in that CPU heat thread from a day or so ago, I think some people need to be educated about what a CPU can do.
Can't believe the cut off for this CPU is 120c, that's unbelievable.
