You have to go into the bios of the computer. On startup their should be a key you hit on your computer generally del or f1. Sometimes its other random keys. Then you can access your hardware monitoring and the cpu temperature will be in their. Also theirs a program called mbm5 motherboard monitor 5. Try downloading that which will work also. As far as the memory dont install it. But as bee said memory isnt everything i dont disagree but its a very volitale component the more memory the faster that way your computer can work 100x fastter on the memory without creating temporary paging files on the harddrive
