Realtemps is commonly referenced as the most reliable temperature measurement program. It is incredibly easy to use.
 
Download it here, unzip it where ever you like.
 
When you open it, you will see a screen like this:
 
 
The most effective way to use this program is to start it before you run any test (or game if you wish) to see what it will log as your high and low temperatures during whatever activities you do. If you want to reset it, there is a RESET button on the bottom, or you can just close it and reopen it to start a new session.
 
 
Here is a key for you:
 
RED - the processors current live temperatures
 
YELLOW - RealTemps will track for as long as it is open and keep record of the lowest temperature each core reaches. This is not very important information as it will be highly affected by the room temperature.
 
PINK - RealTemps will track for as long as it is open and keep record of the highest temperature each core reaches. This is obviously very important information. If you see temperatures at or above 85c, post for help.
 
PURPLE - This is your GPU temperature, if you have multiple cards in SLI, it will display the higher of the two cards. For more detailed information, you can click on this and it will show you high and low temperatures, how long its been logging, and the PCI bandwidth your cards are getting.

HW monitor is what DSO commonly reccomends to view your system temperatures. It can be used to provide more extensive information than RealTemps if you are troubleshooting or overclocking 
 
Its pretty straightforward, download here http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
 
No installation, you just unzip it and double click HWMonitor. 
 
In the red square area, it will show your processor and its current, minimum, and maximum temperatures (listed along the top)
In the green square area, it will show your video card, and its current, minimum, and maximum temperatures.
