To check the Temperature of the CPU, GPU, MB, HDD you can use:

EVEREST
http://www.lavalys.com/

SIV 'System Information Viewer'
http://www.rh-software.com/

SpeedFan
http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php


Motherboard Monitor 5
http://majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=311&file=9&evp=c230ac3b359a1981f1b0a9ee8fa4a983
for old motherboards



The following programs run only on newer CPUs (Intel Core & AMD64)

Core Temp
http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/
check/show in systray the Temperatures of the CPU Cores

Real Temp (Intel Core (and up) processors only)
http://www.techpowerup.com/realtemp/


TThrottle
http://www.efmer.eu/boinc/download.html
http://www.efmer.eu/boinc/tthrottle_manual.html
for automatic Temperature regulation

Some of these programs (Core Temp, Real Temp, TThrottle) report only the internal CPU temperature measured by internal in-the-CPU-chip diode.

Other (EVEREST, SIV, SpeedFan) report both internal and external (measured by diode (located under the processor) and sensor chip (located on the motherboard)) CPU temperature.

Motherboard Monitor 5 reports only external CPU temperature.

This is why you can see different CPU temperature values.

Intel defines max internal (TJunc) temperature.
AMD defines max "CPU case" (measured at the centre-top of the CPU package) temperature.

PC Wizard 2010 from www.cpuid.com is also very good at telling you al sorts of things about your PC. Including temperatures etc.

If you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, do also check the "Gadgets" menu on your desktop. Here you can also find good temperature checking applications, although some that check the GPU will need an external program such as Rivatuner running.

If you get the "GPU Observer" you do not need any external drivers to get GPU temp, load, fan speed etc

if you search on the windows gadget site you can find it quite easily :)

I'm installing BOINC and I noticed this post and was wondering if, there is a way to limit the usage of BOINC in term of CPU and GPU processing determined by a factor, like 50%?

If you are running windows, you could try TThrottle.
