Temp Monitoring Software?

  1. I sometimes overclock my system and I'm wondering of any good software for monitoring the computer components on my desktop so I don't have to go into BIOS constantly. I had a program that did that (forget the name), although it would give me readings like 30c, and withing 2 seconds it would jump to 55c, and then go to 20c withing ten seconds.

    I'm not sure, but I tried speedfan, and it works excellently. I think the other programs were using a faulty sensor. My computer recognizes a few different sensors, and one of them is, in fact, jumpy, and going from 40f to 125 f, although the other ones stay at around 95-100f when the system is overclocked to 3.00 ghz. Thanks for your help!

    Try Intel active monitor, its very good. It tells u how hot every thing is, ur power specs, system info, fan speeds and everything. im pretty sure u can get it on the intel site, or just google it.
