I am past my Dell service agreement and financially strapped. I was looking for a way to check the temp of my components board processor HDs and anything else I can check. Does anyone know a tool or how this can be done with some built in software. I have attached what I hope will help with you input. Any support is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Just to add a something to this ... you can install Dell's OpenManage Server Administrator which will give you temps, fan speeds, voltages, hard drive status, etc.  Surprised with all the suggestions that nobody mentioned the official utility designed for doing just what you asked.  Go to the Drivers and Downloads page for the PE 840 on and download Server Administrator (Managed Node) from the Systems Management section.
