How to measure temperatures?
 
I've seen lots posting on the CPU and Video card temps. How exactly do you acess this?

I'm currently running the Asus P5Q Pro and 4870 ATI.

Thanks.

Latest version of CoreTemp for the CPUs, GPU-Z for the video card. Rivatuner also has temp monitoring.

Other alternatives: Realtemp for CPU temps (Written by a Canadian Eh?)
Speedfan is nice for an all in one solution. Will give you CPU temp, Graphics temp, motherboard etc... plus voltages and fan speeds all on one page.

RivaTuner or eVGA Precision (both written by the same guy) are good for monitoring graphics temps and for overclocking.

edit: just noticed you are ATI. Not sure if RivaTuner and Precision work for ATI.

Just on a side note, what is the recommended Tj Max for 45nm C2Q processors in Real Temp? Is it 100C or 95C?

The gory details are found here although I think that Intel has been back pedaling on some of their numbers.

And if you want ongoing discussion with the author of Realtemp then you can go here.
