Everest Home edition, Speedfan, Motherboard Monitor ALL fail to report the temp. of the CPU. Is there any way i can figure what it is?
Thanks in advance.
You will have to use a separate probe and display for the CPU. Many consumer model (except XPS model) Dell's do not have provisions for CPU temperature monitoring.
I've seen several posts on here about Thermaltake temperature monitoring units.

Its a hardware probe with a display read out that you place near the cpu. I would not even bother with those. I had a Dell for five years and no cpu sensor on it and did not worry about this ever. Some go nuts about temp this and temp that to a point of worry.
Your system is not a barn burner by any stretch, and is a basic system. Those with high performance hardware for gaming and overclocking ones cpu, and video card normally have the sensors.
Just make sure you clean the dust out with a can of compressed air so that the system does not over heat.

The reason i need to know the temp is because i'm building another PC from scratch, and it's noisy. The CPU fan on it is loud, because the CPU temp is from 121-129° F.To me, the Dimension E310 is pretty quiet, and i want to know if that's because the temperature of its CPU is low. Although, could it be because the CPU Fan on the Dim E310 is large? It's much larger than the stock fan that came with the Core 2 Quad processor on the other PC i'm putting together.
