Default CPU Temp Software

I have been using "Speed Fan" to monitor my cpu temp.

Anyone know of a better program?

Something that looks better.

Something that will allow me to actually change my fan speed.

Something thats free.

pc probe ii uses up 50% of one Cpu's power but allows you to view temps accurately, Everest home edition has reasonable results and Nvidia monitor is good for gpu temps.

Speedfan lets you do everything you want for free you can easily change fan speeds with it

Pc probe does not use 50% of one's cpu power. I use it everyday. Once in a while it does use up around 50% of the cpu but that only lasts 4-10seconds then its back to normal. As I type, I have it up and running and my cpu temp is 27c idle and windows task manager-process shows pc probe at 0-1%

what CPU do you have? for the most accurate readings of Core2 chips use coretemp. no fan speed control, but it reads the right sensors.

If you have a C2D then Coretemp as stated is the most accurate. Speedfan however is very close and does let you change your fan speed for free lol.
