Hi,
I have a Cooler Master Hyper TX3 cooling a AMD FX-6300. (Overclocked to 4.1 GHz) I was wondering if anyone knew any good software that accurately monitors your CPU temps. Also, do you think my CPU fan is good enough to keep my CPU cool while overclocked?

The 3 programs i recommend you use are:
AIDA64 / HWmonitor / HWinfo64

Either 1 of these will properly read both temps you need to monitor, socket and core temps.

Quick tips on the temps to monitor:
AIDA will display 'cpu' for the socket temp, core temps are generally listed under that.
HWmonitor and HWinfo will display 'cpu' for the socket temp and 'package' for the core temp.

Downloaded HWmonitor and my temps for my CPU are Package: Value: 34 C Min:34 C Max: 36 C Are those good temps for just surfing the web?

Them temps seem fine for web surfing.
Make sure to monitor the socket temp too, it's the 'cpu' temp listed under motherboard temps.
