Getting a good read on the CPU temperature is tough to do also. I am sure there is a technique on how to do it, but I don't know.

I just watch the temps in speedfan and determine when I need to turn on my case fans.

I leave them off unless I am doing more than one thing at a time. Unless I am gaming of course.
I just use CoreTemp - I figure if my CPU is cool, the rest of my case is too (especially when the curtains behind my PC are moving from the exhaust fan ).

Well, I am on a P4, so I can't use CoreTemp. Also, I just looked and my north bridge temp is at 53C while the CPU temp is down at 35... That is idle too.

I need a better NB cooler. =\\

If you want software control you can try this! It's not very expensive either.

That little card is pretty neat. I would get one, but I'm fine with my current fan controller.

You sir are awesome. This card is very cheap for what it does. Thanks for the advice! I'm probably going to pick this up, and hope that it even has a hookup for sensors. Though, if that's not the case, I might be able to put together my own program -- assuming the bundled software comes with a cmd line interface or API
