Check out CoreTemp.  It comes in many flavors including stand alone, plug-in or widget.

There are also several opinions on the best free program over at this tom's hardware thread.

You can also use this programme: http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html
By the way... I don't see it displayed real-time in CPU-Z, but it's in the generated reports:

Hardware Monitors
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hardware monitor      ACPI
      Temperature 0      55°C (130°F) [0xCCD] (THM_)


I guess that's why ASUS Probe goes into alarm while CPU-Z is running... because CPU-Z is intercepting that signal.
