Just wanted to say thanks to the OP for bringing up the subject, and everyone who posted programs...

I was kinda lost as to which programs were reliable, and those to pass on. :-/

I use the System Monitor II gadget on the desktop with the core temp add on. I also use the Nvidia gadget which shows GPU load and temp.

Downloaded the 1.0 R1 of Coretemp. It is not identify my CPU correctly. Lists it as a i7 2520QM instead of the 2630QM. Previous .9 version showed it correctly. I did an unistall of 1.0 and a reinstall and same problem. Will unistall again and try the previous .9 and see how that goes.

yea, but not happy with it. Gives me temp errors all over the place along with my friends new computer which shows it at 100C when it is not even under load. Going to install the .99.8 on mine and my friends until 1.0 gets tweaked.
