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).
I do not have anything that looks like temperature. Is it still possible
to use healthd or mbmon?
If you have ACPI and your board supports thermal zones, then you can
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.
sysctl -a | egrep acpi
By the way, I'm 100% sure that the problem is with the CPU load. Here
is the output of top:

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?
I'm not affraid of that. I have gmirror-ed disks and they are much
cheaper than the processor ( E6320 ).
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 :-)
