It can be different because it depends on the sensor have been detected.

Alas, there’s no data for NVidia GPU (licensing problem). There’s no date for HDDs either, but you can just write the command:

hddtemp your/disk/path

For example:

hddtemp /dev/sda

the output is:

/dev/sda: Hitachi HTS541680J83A00: 38°C

You can also write the command:


the output is:

Adapter: Virtual device
temp1:        +65.5°C  (crit = +99.0°C)

Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 0:       +62.0°C  (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 1:       +64.0°C  (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)

In this way, you can check your system temperature for: CPU (for each core) and HDD.
