Default Detecting Temp

Does anybody know where I can get a program to detect my processor temperature? My hardware came with one... but it doesn't seem right. Before I overclocked it was at 45 c or so, and after a 500 MHz overclock, the processor was at like 42 c when it is idle... and sometimes it is 46 c... and sometimes it is 38 c (wait, right now it says 53 c). Just seems kinda weird...

The BIOS for one is your most accurate monitor.

Speedfan and Motherboard Monitor 5 also work.

Okay, I tried to install Motherboard Monitor 5 and it does not list my motherboard anywhere. Am I wrong in looking for MSI, because it seems like they'd have my motherboard on the list somewhere.
