Difference between core thermal throttling and package/ring thermal throttling?
#1
Quick background: I'm developing a Rainmeter skin suite called ModernGadgets (GitHub repo here) and I am currently working on implementing thermal throttling detection. When thermal throttling is enabled, it plays a (quite annoying) sound, the graph goes red, and warning text is displayed on the gadget itself.

I have created a UI for configuring HWiNFO IDs, and it would be a pain for the users if they had to enter individual sensor IDs for every core, just for thermal throttling (they already have to do this for core temps). If I were to use the package/ring thermal throttling sensor instead, would that achieve the same thing?

On a related note, could I also use ring clock instead of individual core clocks?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, I believe the "Package/Ring Thermal Throttling" should work the same indicating the global (package) status.
Ring clock is different from core clocks however.

Ok, thanks! That's a huge help.
