    Free software to show hard drive and cpu temps?

    Just wondering if there is any free software that someone can recommend that shows your hard drive temperatures, cpu/motherboard temperatures and fan speed would be a nice to have as well.

    I believe the ASUS Probe only does CPU/motherboard information and none of the "SMART" info on your hard drives. I kind of felt it was a little clunky anyway.

    In the past I think I used CPUcool or CPUidle, probably ran them only in evaluation mode for a while to get SMART info.

    I'm looking for something that is free and pretty slick.

    Yeah I think I recall Speedfan being a little more straightforward than my current experience with Motherboard Monitor.

    Motherboard Monitor also shows HDD temps and is pretty good once you get a hang of it. Speedfan is good too but I always find that it give a lot of temp sensors that doesn't work and you have to figure out what is what.
