    There are several programs that can monitor your systems temperature, one of the most popular is MBM (Mother Board Monitor). Most motherboards manufactures release their own software i.e EPOX USDM which is what I use. Although they arent entirely spot on with their temperature readings they can give you a fairly close account of what your systems temp may be.

    I'd second this one

    MBM (motherboard monitor) is just far to complex

    I also use SpeedFan. Shows you the temp, and slows your fan when PC not working hard (if desired) - great way to reduce PC noise.

    The normal 3 temp readings usually are:

    CPU
    Motherboard
    Hard Drive (assuming you only have 1 hard drive)

    CPU temps normally react quickly to program load and normally have 5-15 degree variances. (normally 30-60 degrees Celcius range)

    Motherboard temps change very slowly and have a small variance around 2-5 degrees. (27-40 Celcius range)

    Hard drive temps also react to loads quickly and normally have a small temperature variance. (31-37 Celcius range)

    Don't take these temps as the Bible truth as it has a lot to do with your ambient temperature and number of cooling fans in your case.
