Motherboard Monitor and SNMP Informant

Motherboard Monitor is a program that reports your system's cpu temperature, fan speed and voltage readings using the built-in sensors on the processor and motherboard. It is freeware and can be downloaded here.

SNMP Informant-MBM is a Windows SNMP extension agent that makes data collected by Motherboard Monitor accessible via SNMP. This makes it possible for network management tools like Nagios and Cacti get low-level information from a wide array of motherboards.

A similar functionality is available from Speedfan and its SNMP extension. However, Speedfan does not allow itself to be run as a Windows service making it inappropriate for unattended monitoring.
