    Of course Everest, best support for just about any sensor

    I agree with sebus.

    Speedfan is good, but Everest has better sensor detection for sure.
    And not only for temps, but also for running fans, everest always detects all of them, speedfan doesn't. And the vcore seems more accurate under load too.

    thanks hwmonitor seems to work perfectly giving the same readings as in the bios .speedfan (I had already tried) was way off the temps given in the bios . I have everest ,but had forgotton about it .
    fitted a new athlon2 435 x3 (2.9 ghz) proccessor and unlocked the 4th core ,been overclocking a bit and got it to 3.4ghz , was wanting to keep an eye on the temps .
    was showing 32c ......41 under load, on 3 cores and 36c .......55C under load when clocked at 3.4 and 4 cores running .
    should not have worried heatsink warm but not hot after several hours of intense photo editing.

    thanks all.

    What did you use to unlock the 4th core?

    I bought a Gigabyte MA790FXT-UD5P and enabled Advanced Clock Calibration in the bios ,rebooted and it showed up as a 4 core ,I had seen it done online a few months back so I bought the CPU (Bargain at £45) got the board cheap too , its well documented online .

    my choice is Everest!

    bt in fact you can always see the temperature of your processor in BIOS mode pressing F12 (if i'm not mistaken) right after starting your computer.
