Need a good monitoring program similar to Gkrellm


Hello all. I'm a relative noob, so bear with me. I'm in need of a good hardware monitoring program that, at a minimum, monitors CPU temp, fan rpm, and system voltages. Currently I'm using Gkrellm, but for the life of me I can't not get it to accurately measure my CPU temp. (It reads several hundred to a few thousand degrees. Both Fahrenheit and Celsius.) At this point I've all but given up on Gkrellm. It's a nice program, but I need one that's accurate and that I can get to work. Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
