Tried searching, no luck.<br />
<br />
What's a good program to use to monitor your CPU temps? I'm using motherboard monitor 5, but I'm going to uninstall it. So any suggestions?

EVEREST Home Edition or Speedfan. Both work well, but i like speedfan cause the system tray thing <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

Afew others are motherboard monitor, and core temp. I personally like speedfan out of all the available programs. With speedfan and ATI tool you can monitor both your CPU temp and your GPU temp in the system bar. <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

I use everest.<br />
<br />
Blue is my water pump RPM, black is my GPU1 GPU2, red is the CPU dual core1 core2, green is the motherboard.<br />
<br />
The reason I use everest is it does 2 videocards it monitors alot more just don't use them all.<br />

Neat thanks for the replies. I went with speedfan. Now can someone tell me what Temp1, Temp2, Temp3, HD0 all represent?

what i do is compare the temps to the ones in the BIOS, then you can just label the "temp1, temp2...." in speedfan>configure>temps>then edit the words.

</div>Those will differ from board to board. HD0 is obviously your HDD though. In order to find out what the other ones are you can either download a pre-set configuration from speedfan or use trial and error. Open speedfan, go to info, then hit get config at the bottom. This will take you to the speedfan website. Sign up (its free) and it will then allow you to search for your mobo. You will recieve a 6 number combination, put that in the ticket area, close speedfan, and then reopen. It should be updated. These are made by users though, so their is no gaurantee on how good they are. For trial and error, run prime95, temp that increases the most is CPU, temp that increases the second most is most likely NB. Then run ATItool stress test, temp that increases the most that time is VGA.<br />

*Edit: Gah Phantom, that is the second time tonight you have beat me to the answer...

I like SensorsView - just google it...<br />
<br />
HIGHLY customizable... and you can make it look pretty... completely transparent, to no transperency and everything in between... seen in the attachment...<br />
<br />
oh, and don't freak out with the memory useage - I'm doing a Prime95 torture test as we speak <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/b/b4/b4f42fb5_vbattach32863.jpeg"><img src="http://www.overclock.net/image/id/617331/width/525/height/525/flags/LL"></a>

Google/download "SysTool"<br />
I've got speedfan, sisandra, everest, pc2006, etc.. and the Systool is the best with a display that stays where you want it.<img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />

Meh, can't use SysTool, my motherboard isn't in their list.<br />
<br />
Ok my speedfan 4.30 says<br />
<br />
Temp1: 30C<br />
Temp2: 38C<br />
Temp3 127C << <img src="/images/smilies/sniper.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Sniper" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
Temp: 32C<br />
Temp1: 33C<br />
HD0: 38C<br />
Core: 31C<br />
<br />
Scary huh? Well then my Sensorview Pro 2.1 says my CPU temp is 0C! So now I'm using the trial version of Everest, and this is what it says..<br />
<br />
Mobo: 38C<br />
Cpu: 30C<br />
Cpu Diode: 31C<br />
<br />
These are all readings on 2.2ghz, the 127C scared me to put my CPU speed @ stock for the moment. I feel all the heatsinks in my rig, cpu, gpu, ram, everything seems normal. The Everest seems to give me correct readings, I dont know whats up with speedfan and sensorview. <img src="/images/smilies/confused.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Confused" class="inlineimg" />
