    Try Everest.

    Use to be aida32. Still freeware. Has a nice feature for seeing how far you have overclocked along with temps in the sensor section.

    I'd also recommend Motherboard Monitor if it works with your setup. Used to give me the most accurate temps on my old desktop at home.

    42 on the cpu is ok. figuer it goes up 5 deg C under heavy loading (like cpu benchmark or gaming). Thatputs you at 47 max so you have another 5 degrees to over clock it. Keep it under 55 max.

    I run sisoft sandra (its freeware) burn in for the cpu after I up the clock speed and monitor the temps. It takes about 5 passes of the burn in module to stabilize.

    If all goes well in burn in I start playing my favorite games. Nothing like gaming to stress and overclcoked system.
