There is alot of programs that will work.

Download pcwizard2006, it will list all of your computers hardware and information. Also has a good temperature monitor included with it. Just minimize the program and it monitors the temps on the desktop.

There is alot of other programs but this program is good for everything. All around good tool.

Right when you open the program, minimize it.

The cpu speed
cpu temp:
cpu core:
cpu load:

will be in green in the upper right corner.

Thats what you wanted isnt it?

You can also goto voltages,temperatures, and fans in the program.

Either does the same thing.

I used to use SpeedFan. Though it worked, it would interfere with some DOS programs I was running, so I got rid of it and now use Everest Home Edition v2.20. It's freeware. I think the company that makes this released a more recent version that isn't freeware and stopped supporting v2.20. So you might have to search elsewhere for it. If I remember correctly, I got it from a website that had a marine guy on it with a big chin...majorgeeks.com or something.
