    Greetings 18C,

    Try this :

    http://www.aida32.hu/aida-download.php?bit=32


    Get the Enterprise Edition.

    Once its installed Run > click the 'System' icon > click Sensor.
    You will get 3 temp stats .... cpu, motherboard, and auxiliary.

    If your board supports Motherboard Monitor , that may be the best choice for its simplicity and variety of sensors.

    EasyTune 4 that came with the board will montior CPU & System temps, as well as, voltages & fan speeds. It will also allow you to overclock should you be into that.

    You can download the program here.

    Your temps are fine. Those CPU's are rated for about 70 - 90 degrees celsius before they experience death. Anything in the mid 40's and below is good.

    Still within range, especially if under load which is what I made of the statement. No doubt it can run cooler but its Ok.

    Too many case fans is just as bad as not enough. The effiency can actually decrease. Quality thermal paste may help - something like Artic Silver.
