Congrats on the new system Big%20smile.
 
CPU-z and Speedfan will tell you what you want to know. Speedfan's reported temps will be 15C low until you adjust the offsets.

That was a response to someone trolling. The original remarks, and most of the responses were removed. Somehow, that one got missed.

congrats can't wait till I'm in your shoes.

btw just fyi after bunch of tests, speedfan seems to be showing the temps about 6 to 8 degress lower then they are.

try cpuid and you will see the difference and the real temps and its a great freeware

DST4ME, it's actually low by about 15*C for the reported core temps for Intel CPU's. The nice thing about Speedfan, is in the advanced options, you can set a temperature offset, and select the correct sensor modes for your motherboard.

I use Coretemp to check for the correct core temperatures, and set my Speedfan offsets accordingly. Just be sure to check the "remember it" box in Speedfan so it uses the correct temperature offset every time.

CPUID isn't a bad program though. I don't use it because it was misreporting my fan speeds and giving me some crazy figures on a couple of the voltages. If it works for you, I agree, it's nicely laid out.
