    Use Motherboard Monitor 5. Freeware, and best thing out there!

    also known as mbm5 google it!

    EDIT: It will monitor everything related to your CASE. Sorry, know nothing about outside temperature monitoring...

    Sorry to hear that. Works very well for me, and is insanely configurable. Its what most folks use in this forum.

    How hard is it to work with Phidgets? Installing them and programming them?

    If it does no give you accurate temps ypu can change the sensor type in the program and see if it gives you better results

    I agree, MBM5 does suck the proverbial, but it is freeware and well you can't be free.

    If you were going for a custom solution, I would look at the Dallas Temperature Sensor series. I've built some embedded temperture monitoring solutions for people using these things and they are AWESOME.

    Very easy to string a few (or many) together for an insanely verbose temperature monitoring system
