On windows I can see my CPU sensor, but in Ubuntu, using PSensor, I can't see CPU sensor. It detects GPU sensor (which I don't have) and it detects CPU usage. Is there any other tool which can detect my CPU temperature sensor.

As already said by drake01, Psensor is 'just' a GUI front-end on top of few libraries providing temperature information. For mother-board it uses lm-sensors, basically you need to install it (the package is lm-sensors), then run 'sensors-detect' as root. You will find more information at lm-sensors FAQ or Psensor installation. If the command 'sensors' displays some temperature sensors but not Psensor, feel free to report a bug to me (firstname.lastname@example.org). If 'sensors' reports no temperature sensors, your hardware is not supported or you should ask the lm-sensors team.
There are many other tools similar to Psensor, for example Xsensors or the excellent indicator-sensors from Alex Murray. Anyway, there are all based on lm-sensors, so the first step is to have lm-sensors running correctly.
