Um, well what exactly did you do lol...
Open up RivaTuner > On the little arrow that says 'Customize' (the first one, closest to the top); click that and another menu should come up > should have some icons there; click on the one that looks like a little computer chip with a magnifying glass over it (should say 'Hardware Monitoring' if you hover over it) > a bunch of graphs should come up, find the graph labeled Core Temperature. That's the one you wanna look at.
And Thor, I don't really suggest Speedfan at all...it tends to be pretty inaccurate with some things (like for example whatever my "Temp1" is...its in the negative C degrees lol).
