I have a Iwill KA266, it doesnt come with any hardware monitoring tools. I'm using MBM5 to monitor heat, ive heard it doesnt read correctly or well. What should i use for a Hardware monitoring? and where can i get it? any leads appreciated.

monitoring

The inaccuracy is caused by the placement of the in-socket sensor on the backside of your cpu. If you want true temps, changing software won't help, you'll need to get a probe to stick on the cpu core.

temp probes

hmmmm... not sure. Check hardcorecooling.com or newegg.com or directron.com You should be able to find a basic one with 2 probes for around $15 or the deluxe digidoc 5 for more like $60.
