Temp Monitoring Software for MSI k9n Plat. Mobo!?!

I am wondering what program is available for monitoring temperature and is compatible with the new AM2 socket Mobos. I have an MSI k9n Platinum (non-sli). I want a program that not only gives current temps, but also will have a chart history so I can see what my temps are under load while playing a game. Thanks!!!

Either Speedfan or RivaTuner should work, and both will show a temp. chart graph.

Phatic got it spot on. Both Speedfan and RivaTuner are awesome.

If your motherboard has an Nvidia chipset, then go for nTune. I'm not familiar with that particular motherboard, so I don't know much about it. =(

Alternatively, if you just want to see what your temperatures are like under load, download the Folding@Home client. That way, you can keep an eye on temperatures and watch how they flunctuate, without having to open a game which covers the whole screen.

I have the K9N Neo (the board just below the Plat.) and it won't work with speedfan. nTune is what I use for temp monitoring. I was unaware that RivaTuner monitored Mobo temps.

I have nTune, but It shows my CPU temps at 230 degrees Celcius. I wonder what that means? I KNOW it's not correct because my house isn't on fire.

Double check the temperature with SpeedFan. If Speedfan confirms it, perhaps you should invest in a smoke detector.

Usually I use each mainboard's software e.g. CoreCenter for MSI, mGury for ABIT, PC-Probe for ASUS etc....
On the other hand you may see Speedfan as the others said above.
