why would u need that lol ? if you got a good cooler on your e8400, it will stay at around 50c-60c. Its not like a GPU where it can hit 80c+(unless u have a bad cooler or its not installed correctly)

hwmonitor is good but almost every temp monitor gets it wrong.. Software that comes with your mobo usually is the most accurate, well idk its probably not xD

i use Asus Pc probe II

I think I use Core Temps.
I dont quite remember whats it called when I used to check my temps while I OC'ed my CPU. I also used Everest to compare the 2 to see if they match.

I open up Core Temps, and leave it running while running the game. I game for like 10 minutes or so. I quit the game, and it shows whats the max temp the CPU has gotten over the time of gaming.

PC Wizard.

When you minimize it you'll get a read out in the corner of the screen.
