Check out healthd or mbmon. One or other has worked OK for me on other Asus boards, and both are in ports (sysutils/ I think).

If you have ACPI and your board supports thermal zones, then you can check those.
   sysctl -a | egrep 'acpi.*therm'
   sysctl -a | egrep 'acpi.*tz'

one or other should be a good enough incantation. None of my ASUS mobos do have thermal zones so I can't be sure -- it's much more commonly supported in laptops.

Or just

   sysctl -a | egrep acpi
I do not have anything that looks like temperature. Is it still possible to use healthd or mbmon?

By the way, I'm 100% sure that the problem is with the CPU load. Here is the output of top:

2266 monica 1 110 0 16268K 11088K RUN 1 17:22 22.85% gnome-volume-manage 1258 edit 1 110 0 16268K 11000K RUN 1 19:08 22.75% gnome-volume-manage 1658 mariann 1 109 0 16320K 11260K RUN 1 18:30 22.56% gnome-volume-manage 1528 mtamas 1 109 0 16268K 11068K RUN 1 18:49 22.41% gnome-volume-manage 1244 timea 1 110 0 16268K 11000K CPU1 1 19:07 22.36% gnome-volume-manage 1251 monica 1 110 0 16268K 11000K RUN 1 18:44 22.07% gnome-volume-manage 1268 zoltan 1 109 0 16268K 11000K RUN 1 18:52 21.78% gnome-volume-manage

This server is an X terminal server and the users connect to it with 'X -query <ip>'. Can I do something to reduce the load on the CPU? "gnome-volume-manage" uses 99% of the CPU, constantly - why?

PS Many disks which support SMART can display their apparent temp as one of the SMART parameters (see sysutils/smartmontools). Not 100% trustworthy, but better than nowt. I'd rather fry the processor than a disk :-)
I'm not affraid of that. I have gmirror-ed disks and they are much cheaper than the processor ( E6320 ).

Thank you!
