I know of several programs that somehow access the temperature sensors built into my motherboard, however, I can not seem to find a windows API function that does it, and all my searches on the web have come up empty with the sites I thought would be helpfull have all gone the way of the dodo.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance

You normally use WMI to interact with hardware at that low a level. Your problem is that there is no standard method for getting that information from every motherboard. You're going to have to do some research on your motherboard specifically and what interface it provides.
