You need the magic of "lm-sensors":
sudo apt-get install lm-sensors
Follow the instructions, and if you're one of the lucky ones with a
supported chipset, typing "sensors" should show you all the magic
numbers with temperatures, fan speeds and other things (assuming your
motherboard has the supported sensors).
After that, you can start installing any number of GUI-based tools for
displaying your sensor output in real time; gkrellm comes to mind, and
if you're a KDE fan there's a number of panel applets and
(super)karamba themes that will pull the sensor info too.
Usual disclaimers apply :)
