You'll find it doesn't support all hardware and requires some knowledge of your computer, but Motherboard Monitor is a nice freeware option that displays your temps in the Notification Area by the clock and sounds audio alerts if they exceed user-defined temps. Everest and SpeedFan, both freeware, also offer information about your current temperatures but they don't provide the 'on-demand' access of motherboard monitor.
Hope this helps,
Just wondering if anyone could point me towards software that monitors & reports CPU/Motherboard temperature. If the program warns you when temps are too high that's a definite plus...Ideally I want freeware but willing to pay a bit if I have to.
I have a Dell Dimension E521 Desktop (unfortunately.) with an AMD processor, running Windows XP.
