    well, i looked in the comp while its running and it looks like all the fans are working, but it would still probably help to get new fans...

    Read before asking "is this too hot"
    Your cpu fan monitoring thing isn't working for any one of a few reasons. The best check is to look, like you said you did. If its spinning and your CPU isn't overheating, then you are fine.

    All I know is that I wish I could get my processor DOWN to that temperature! My 3GHz Prescott idles around 120 degrees F, and that's with upgraded cooling.

    So... yeah, you don't have anything to worry about. Just check your fan's motherboard connector.

    well, my CPU fan doesnt have a connection or something to find out the temp.

    It looks like you are getting a temperature reading for your CPU, so that isn't a problem... what you're apparently missing is the plug from your CPU fan to go onto the motherboard. That allows monitoring of the fan's RPM speed. If your fan didn't come with such a connector (it's a multi-colored wire coming from your heat sink, with a small plug at the end), that strikes me as quite strange... but it's ok if you don't mind being unable to monitor your fan speed.

    Some fans / boards report 0 rpm if the fan is spinning at low speed. I've modified my fans so that they spin lower (and I can see that they do spin), but MBM reports 0 rpm for PSU fan. I guess the real rpm is around 1000.
