try speed fan instead. what I use and get better temp/fan read outs.
or the FREE version of Everesthome.
the idea is to make sure your program is reading correctly.

This appears to be correct. I have an Asus k8v-x and with cpu-z processor is
running at 2000 when it should be 1000 unless pushed. I have enabled cool
and quiet in the bios and set power management in control centre to minimal.
Rebooted and still running at 2000 per cpu-z (a great utility) but temp is at
least down to 31 this time (per Asusprobe). Temp usually runs at about 32 c
in win2k, but has reached 42 in Vista. While this is safe, I am not at all
happy about it, and at the least I don't expect any arguments from Microsoft
activation if I upgrade the motherboard - but I figure best to do that later
this year or early next when more drivers and vista specific motherboards
