    Generally there's a section called Hardware Monitor in your BIOS which reports basic informations such as CPU temp, voltages, fan speeds, etc.

    Have a look at the manual that came with your board.

    You press delete or F2 or some other key to enter the BIOS settings on boot up of your PC. I've never used a system which has a BIOS which is accessible via Windows. You could get a version of Motherboard Monitor to view these temperatures and fan speeds etc. in Windows.
