Default Operating Temps

How can I check my PC's operating temperatures, such as my CPU's temperature?

Well those temps with a program like Everest ARE accurate....You can check temps in the bios, just hit del when on boot and bios will appear....But boot cpu temps are always higher than when in Windows, so thats not a "usable" reading really...You should see somewhere between 40-55 degrees, lower the better...

oH always thought its was the other way around Hmm so those readings are correct see some ppl on this forums said the the temps taken from programs are wrong.
