I want as simple of a program as possible to monitor my system board temperatures and voltages. I've seen SpeedFan mentioned around here a few times; do most of you agree that's one of the best ones? How do I know if it's giving me reasonably accurate readings?

I'm running Windows XP Home with a 2 year old motherboard, 2.2 GHz Athlon.

Most all of these programs that don't come with their own sensors take their readings from the BIOS, Everest Home Edition is another that is free and will supply those specs plus a lot more.

I just tried that link to be sure and it was still working for me. The 2.20 version is still free and can be downloaded from several different sites. There is a retail version, perhaps this is what you are thinking of.

Yeah. I dont see the point in a product if its discontinued. It will soon be obsolete x_x

EDIT: Like..It wont have support for the newer motherboards and such
