    You can try SpeedFan from here

    SpeedFan is a program that monitors voltages, fan speeds and temperatures in computers with hardware monitor chips. SpeedFan can even access S.M.A.R.T. info and show hard disk temperatures. SpeedFan supports SCSI disks too. SpeedFan can even change the FSB on some hardware (but this should be considered a bonus feature). SpeedFan can access digital temperature sensors and can change fan speeds accordingly, thus reducing noise. SpeedFan can find almost any hardware monitor chip connected to the 2-wire SMBus (System Management Bus (trademark belonging to SMIF, Inc.), a subset of the I2C protocol) and works fine with Windows 9x, ME, NT, 2000, 2003, XP and Windows Vista. It works with Windows 64 bit too.

    I have run it on windows 7 with no problems, oh and it is free.

    Thumbs up Core Temp

    thanks guys - i went for Core Temp in the end cos it was one i recognised. This system seems to be fine between 23-34 Celsius w/ cpu somewhere inbetween. Presumably the numbers go red if there is something seriously amiss?

    the screen was 'trembling' very slightly earlier - i thought overheat but maybe something unrelated?

    thanks again

    Core Temp is a great utility,even you can use Everest Ultimate edition, and the temperature doesn't changes to Red color even if it's too high..My laptop core have temperatures around 80 Celsius or so :P

    I'm using Open Hardware Monitor and it's pretty good. Some GPU temperatures might not be shown.
