Another good option is Speedfan

This is still being developed to support the latest motherboards, chipsets and hard drives. Motherboard monitor, although good, is no longer being developed.

As to temperature of CPU, depends on the type, amongst other things.

Some motherboards come with their own monitoring software. Have you checked yours?

If you don't know which motherboard you have, download cpu-z. click here

This will tel you your motherboard and also confirm your socket size.;-)
