Default System Temperature

Is there any temperature reader program I can use to read my CPU,GPU etc temperature? My PC keeps crashing when I download a lot of stuff but I'm not sure which part of my PC is over heating.

You chould check the initial cpu temperature on bootup by going straight into your Bios. If its sat over 50 degrees then it may well be overheating.

Used to use gkrellm on linux but if your running windows then there is a port here:

Yeah I've done that. My CPU is below 37 on bootupc, but I wanna measure the temperature when a software or whatever activity is running.

Check the web site for your MB manufacturer there's normally a utility on there that will do it.
