    I like using coolinfo (now CoolMon) myself. Check out the attachment, it's the green text on the right. You can get it here. Make sure you read the whole thread and get the MotherBoard Monitor program too.

    I've already tried this Lonman, but for whatever reason it doesn't work on the hardware side

    You need to configure mbm properly before it will read your temps and fan speeds. There are newer version available too:

    CoolMon

    MotherBoard Monitor

    As long as you have mbm configured correctly, you don't have to leave it running. Be sure to follow the CoolMon instructions about dll's in the right places.

    You're welcome. Glad you got it working ok... it's a complicated setup, but it's nice to have the info right there.
