I dont know what you've seen, but Speedfan is a good program that tells temperatures.

I downloaded Speedfan but found it to be useless, especially for what you want.

speedfan is useless if what you want is accurate temps.

you could download EVEREST and that will tell you temps and voltage and a bagillion other things + benchmarks. most they time the readings are more accurate than speedfan's.

I second the Everst Home Edition recommendation. It's by far my favorite montoring program and give you a ton of information, to boot.
