    Welcome to HWC


    If your Mobo supports it, Motherboard Monitor works great for temp/fan/voltage monitoring from Windows and it's free. (I prefer the 4.18 version.)

    You can also check it in your BIOS. Or Sandra software tells you too, if I recall correctly.

    yeah,

    there are many ways too check. But for constantly updated("realtime") data, Motherboard Monitor is the best I've seen.
