Currently I have Speedfan installed on my system and I have an Intel Core i3 Processor and it shows the following information:
HD0: 30C Temp1: 32C Temp2: 32C Core 0: 26C Core 1: 28C Core 2: 29C Core 3: 27C
What does all fo this information mean and where is the temperature for my CPU? Also are these good temps for my computer? The highest I think I have seen them go is like 40C or maybe a little over but not much over 40C and that was while doing a really graphic intensive game.

HD0 is the sensor on your Hard drive, this isnt that important infact some tests show that hard drives function better when hot?!!?!?!
Temp1 and Temp2 are most likely sensors on your north bridge chip and perhaps another motherboard chip...
your cpu temps are the core0 core1 core2 core3 each core of your cpu has a sensor. these are very respectable temperatures and 40'c is not hot at all, if you want to see what temperature they get to on full load, try using a free program called prime95, this stress tests your cpu and should get it nice and hot. Also there is a better piece of software for monitoring temps called SIW google it and download it, it is free and on the left you can click on sensors and it will monitor temps and show min and max. Also its much more clear what each reading is from (it will say motherboard as opposed to temp1)
