Default Monitor PC heat?

Does anyone know of a good set of tools that I can use to monitor my CPU heat and keep an eye on it? My main concern it checking CPU heat.

Egad, never mind I just realized my mobo came with a utility. it's currently running at 39 C, fan is 1740 RPM. What numbers would be bad, like when should I start to worry if the CPU reaches a certain temp or does the uGuru software show an alert or something?

For CPU: OCCT, and CoreTemp have been the most accurate for me (CoreTemp being #1).
GPU: RivaTuner, ATITool
General temps: Everest (it has a sensor tab, along with all of your other system info).

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5
