I'm experimenting with different locations and fans in my server. Whats a good program to monitor temperatures?

If it's really a server (not a regular PC with a Server SO) all the manufactures have specific software for the servers that are able to monitor them very nicely. HP, Dell, IBM... check the web and try them. – Carlos Garcia Feb 1 '11 at 11:02

How about just using snmp?

The OP didn't specify which OS exactly, but on my W7 Pro machine SNMP does not provide any temperature data. – mark Jun 10 '10 at 14:43

I recommend Hmonitor. This software is quite possibly the best hardware sensor monitoring of softwares, temperature of any component on your PC/laptop/notebook/server with a sensor, including Core, CPU, mainboard, HDD, VGA/Graphics card temperatures and so on.
