HWMonitor is a freeware hardware monitoring program from CPUID for the PC that is capable of reading the voltage, temperature, and fan speed (RPM). The program is capable of handling most common sensor chips, can read modern CPU's on-die core thermal sensors, hard drive S.M.A.R.T, and even the video card GPU temperature. The picture below is an example of the CPUID HWMonitor screen and output. The current value, as well as the recorded minimum and maximum values, are listed in the chart.
