Default Reccomended CPU/GPU temp monitor software

Hi.

What would you guys reccomend for a program that monitors your CPU and GPU temps and logs them down so you can see what they max at when gaming and the minimum when there idle?

Does nVidia include any software like this, as I cant find it???

When going into the bios I can check the CPU temp. Which is about 34-36 (is this good?), so im guessing thats more or less at idle then? But would like to know what its temps like when gaming.

Everest will tell you the temps but the heat sensor in the BIOS is the most accurate.

But I cant access the bios when gaming or when logged on. I need to know what kind of temps im getting when im gaming. Some kind of event log for temperatures. So I can quit out after gaming and go back at check what it maxed at etc...

Anything that can do that for me?

Everest for general temps; CoreTemp for CPU, RivaTuner for GPU.
