Suggestion: May we please have CPU temp monitoring in the Metrics Overlay?

I can't fathom why we can view pretty much any valuable (and pointless) metric using the OSD in adrenalin, except for CPU temp.

We can already view the CPU util, why can't we also see the temp? Is the util-value captured by reading windows output or something?

Agree completely! Have wondered this as well. 

AMD Ryzen Processors mostly run so cool I don't usually need to even look at CPU Temp most of the time.
Mind you, mostly only use about 4 threads of Total 16 max, based on the CPU Utilization report on my main PC.
I also have an AIO Cooler on the CPU.

You might get CPU Temp Report available in the Adrenalin 2021 Overlay.
If you look at the vote on Features Request Star at the Top RHS of the Adrenalin 2020 20.12.1 GUI/UI you will see the following:

That is often a good indication of what is on the way in the next major Adrenalin 2020 driver update.
Remember to vote anyhow.
