**Note: I don’t maintain this extension myself but https://github.com/xtranophilist/gnome-shell-extension-sensors is regularly updated.
gnome-shell-extension-sensors (previously known as gnome-shell-extension-cpu-temperature)
is an extension for displaying CPU temperature, hard disk temperature, voltage and
CPU fan RPM in GNOME Shell.
The extension uses sensors from lm_sensors package (lm-sensors for Debian systems)
to read temperature for different CPU cores and adapters, voltage data and fan speed.
If lm_sensors is not installed, temperature is read from system files.
Optionally, this extension uses hddtemp to read hard drive temperature data.
You can install this extension by visiting the GNOME extensions page for this extension.
Fedora has packaged this extension. You can install it by running:
yum -y install gnome-shell-extension-cpu-temperature
