I think you need to perform low level operations to get the info from bios, so if your using windows, i think you need to write a .vxd driver type thing.

More than that. You will probably have to be chipset / bios specific.
I recall a component suite called "sysinfo" or something.. that had various bios detail, but was so unstable on anything other than win98 and mainstream chipsets, as to render it useless.

Most modern MB vendors ship proprietory tools for monitoring fan speed, CPU temp etc, but these tend to be specific - Applications such as "sandra" have a library of bios / chipset info that don`t work on everything.
