    Default Finding out the Temperature

    I have a Dell 8400 but they don't have any temperature monitoring on the mb. Are there any 3rd party tools that I can use to find out what temp the pc is running at?

    Thanks.

    Motherboard Monitor doesn't support my Dell, any other suggestions? Don't mind using hardware.

    They are ussualy quite expensive, but why do you want to see the temps anyway. You can't do any overclockign with it so whats the point of knowing the temps?

    If you really want to know you could bring it to a computer shop and maybe they can read the temps

    Ummm... no they're not. You can pick up something simple like a CompuNurse for around $15 or so. Just make sure you place the probe next to the core and not between the core and heatsink. You may already know this, but I like to point it out for those who are not accustomed to using a hardware probe.
