CPU-Z will give you all the info you need to know about your CPU...

CPU-Z Download Website

and you can adjust your fan speeds in BIOS... though, im not sure why youd want to... unless youre overclocking?
then you should ask for/get an overclocking app, not a monitoring one... w/e tho - RK

I'd go with speedfan too. It wont mind if you have a Pentium D.

Use PC Wizard 08... best program out of the ones I've used so far.

PC Wizard 2008 - Download

It will display all your temps in the top right hand corner when you minimize and wont startup on startup like other annoying programs when u dont want it to.

I highly recommend it.
