    Make sure you have MBM configured correctly before you fire up Coolmon or it won't display temps and fan speeds.

    Launch MBM, right click on the tray icon> settings> Temperatures> Sensor 1 select a corrosponding sensor listed just below it> Sensor 2 select the next sensor> Sensor 3, etc. The fans work in similar fashion. After you get them reading correctly you can use Coolmon... MBM doesn't have to be running, just configured correctly.

    Yeah, they aren't the easiest to use, Jewelzz, but they are the coolest. ;)

    I guess if you can find the bung hole on your box you can do it the old fashioned way. Be polite though and use a dab of vasoline.

    Right on, SpeedFan works well. I still like Coolmon though. SpeedFan is a good one to show CPU temp in the system tray though... I think I'll use it for that.
