Laptop temperature gauge

Can anyone recommend a good temperature gauge program for my laptop? Something simple, efficient in resources that can display my laptop's temperature? Sometimes my laptop will overheat if the vent is blocked.

    CoreTemp measures your CPU temperatures and provides the number in the taskbar for convenient looking.

    I prefer HWMonitor though, as it shows your GPU and HD temperatures as well as CPU and also logs what your highest and lowest temperatures are so you can see how hot your laptop got after playing a game or something.

    Google 'em.

    SpeedFan works fairly well; you can manipulate your fan speeds on desktop PCs, but there's no support for that on laptops. It gives you CPU speeds, CPU usage (for each core if more than one), CPU/GPU temps, fan speeds (if on PC), and some other stuff too. It also graphs temperatures over time in case you want to see trends. It will also display your temps on the toolbar for at-a-glance usefulness.

    Second for HWMonitor. Available at http://www.cpuid.com. Just get HWMonitor, not HWMonitor Pro.
