Is there an application that will tell you, in Windows, the CPU temp? I have an ECS KN1 SLI Lite and an Athlon 64 3200. My Geforce 6800 shows the system temp, but there was no application provided with my mobo to tell me the CPU temp.
Also, is it common for cases that have plastic ducting around the CPU to smell a bit like plastic when you turn the machine on? Don't worry, BIOS says the CPU runs around 40 C and the GPU runs about the same. I don't think that anything is burning up but the smell does concern me.
