Hello everybody, I wonder if there is a way to get the CPU temperature and fan speed to a VB program and if so, how? I hope someone can help me with this problem.
Thanks.

Where would you get the data from?  Your typical PC will not be aware of the temperature of your CPU.  In order to access temperature data you have to actually have a device that reads the temperature.  Some motherboards do this as a feature, and if you have one of these motherboards they will come with software to display the temperature.

If you have no device that reads the temperature of your CPU you might as well try to write a program that tells you the temperature of the turkey sandwich you had for lunch.

As far as I'm aware you need a sensor installed on the motherboard for this to work.

Have you looked at the website for WMI on MSDN ?
