I don't know about "best" but I use Speed Fan. I also have a Speed Fan gadget on my desktop.

Seems to only report on CPU temps though (or did I miss something?)

You didn't.

Not free but personally I prefer Everest with its built in Sidebar support.

oddly... speedfan and everest report 2 different temps on my computer, so you might want to check the temps and see which one looks more "normal" for instance, on my machine speedfan was showing the core temps to be 22 and 23 respectively, everest was showing it at about 37 which sounds right to me

I've found that everest works the best, even though it's not free. It allows me to monitor all sorts of temperatures procceses, dll files and more.

It also allows you to use the following things to display items:

Logitech GamePanel
OSD (Similar to Sidebar)
Sidebar
System Tray

Here's a pic of the OSD (Larger) and the SysTray

Is your SSD even capable of having it's temps read?
