everest home free works pretty good on older systems like yours

http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html

coretemp is the state of the art new utility


http://www.thecoolest.zerobrains.com/CoreTemp/

verify by rebooting into bios and catching a temp there

some utilities report the lower of 2 temps, you want to go with the highest which is the "core/die" temp

If I remember right your cpu (redlines)/max safe temp is around 85C

the old P4's and amd xp's ran hot
Chewy

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

speedfan is not telling me what half the temps are even for and then it's reporting my 12 volt as 11.49 when everest, pc probe and bios all say it 12.16 rock solid

Hey old post but i finally got around to downloading speed fan. What im wondering is on the first tab it states READINGS
then it says
Temp 1 = 43
Temp 2 = 35
Temp 3 = 48
HD 0 = 41 I figure this is Hard drive temp
Temp 1 = 40

I figure its reading temp for CPU, Northbridge, Southbridge, hard drive and Graphics card but which one is which?

If anyone has this program and could tell me that would be great thanks

I have to agree with Chewy, everest is the better of the two as for dependable readouts, it mirrors the BIOS. Another thing you might want to think about is just what sensors are these temperatures being taken from, the motherboard usually only has one thermistor or diode type sensor and that is for the CPU.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I use CPUID Hardware Monitor. I hope 85 isn't the max because when my computer stays on for a long time I have seen it as high as 83!

I am still monitoring my temps regularly.

Looks like I am running hot.

Took the cover off and blew all dust out.

Check out these temps..
