Try Xmbmon http://www.nt.phys.kyushu-u.ac.jp/shimizu/download/download.html.
The nice thing about xmbmon is that unlike lm_sensors, you don't need to compile or load any kernel
modules. I use xmbmon when I'm testing out machines with knoppix. However, with dedicated installs I
tend to use lm_sensors because gkrellm can make use of it.
