    EVEREST gives a lot of information about your hardware and temperatures and also has a bunch of benchmarking tests so you can compare your computer's performance to others. The free version of EVEREST doesn't give you access to all of its features though.

    If this isn't what you were after, could you reformulate the question please?

    Speedfan


    Speedfan is a very simple and very free monitoring system, fan control is hit or miss but it works great as a temp monitor.
