SIW is a useful system information package that includes sensor data (eg. HDD, CPU, GPU temps). There is a free install or portable version.

Dear badspell68,
Overheating does not occur as soon as you boot your pc! Say, if it's occuring 30 minutes after use, then that can be one of the causes of the "freeze up! I had a Hitachi internal HD and you could literally make an omelette on the top of the cabinet. Once i switched to a 1TB Seagate Barracuda,the problem went away!

Kindly download SPECCY from : Speccy - System Information - Free Download. It is an excellent tool. Kindly see the snap below:

Regards,
Sreedhav
PS : You may click on any of the sub-headings in Speccy to view in more detail! Forgot to mention, the program is FREE!
