It depends on the processor and temperature sensors installed on your PC. You need to access the system management interface, and this interface can change based on motherboard, chipset, processor... It's not common.

A typical temperature sensor is the W83667HG.

C is fine, but it's going to be very system specific.

Ok. First thing is to define on which OS you want to do it. Anyway there is nothing you can do with that on Qt but on C/C++ - yes. For Linux I can suggest you libsmbios (http://linux.dell.com/libsmbios/main/), where you can find a C++ binding as well. But it is low level programing highly dependent on OS and underlying hardware.

Good luck,
