    It depends on your processor. Coretemp (google it) is great for the following processors:

    AMD:
    All Phenom series.
    All Athlon64 series.
    All Athlon64 X2 series.
    All Athlon64 FX series.
    All Turion64 series.
    All Turion64 X2 series.
    All Sempron series. (K8 based)
    Single Core Opterons starting with SH-C0 revision and up. (K8 based)
    All Dual Core Opteron series. (K8 based)
    All Quad Core Opteron series. (K10 based)

    Intel:
    Initial Nehalem support.
    Atom.
    All Core Solo series.
    All Core Duo series.
    All Core 2 Duo series.
    All Core 2 Quad series.
    All Core 2 Extreme series.
    All Celeron-M 400 and 500 series.
    All Celeron E1000 series.
    All Pentium E2000, E2100, E2200 and E5000 series.
    All Dual Core Low Voltage Xeons series (Yonah based. Untested).
    All Xeon 3000, 3200, 3300, 5100, 5300, 5400 series

    If your processor isn't in this list, download speedfan (google). It works for most other (older) cpus.
