CPU Information

I am looking for a way to get the following information from my system board:

CPU Temp
CPU Fan Speed
System Temp
System Fan Speed

Basically from Windows see what I see in the Bios Setup page for system information.

Any push in the right direction would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Joe

I'm not too sure, but I think you have to know what type of motherboard you are using and finding out if it has any Dll's you can access.  Here was an example of such a scenario.   Check out your motherboard's manufacturer and see if they have any window monitoring software.  Usually there will be a DLL bundled where you can access such information.

There are programs that do this already. They may have SDK's or souce code, but why re-write what's been written?
