Default Good CPU/GPU temperature program - 04-11-2011, 21:29 | posts: 81 | Location: Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Sup people,

I've thought of starting to experiment a bit with overclocking. Thought it would be a good idea to check the temps while doing this.

Is there a good temperature monitor program for CPU/GPU? Or should it rather be measured manually on the board self?

Thanks in advance

Real Temp will measure both for you.

Also, use Afterburner for OC'ing your GPU (it will also monitor temps too)

You can use GPU-Z for your VGA & Hardware monitor to measure temperature of both of them =)

Core Temp/GPU-Z/AIDA64 are all good apps.

Nvidia Inspector now displays GPU temp/voltage etc too...

For GPU I would prefer eVGA Precision/MSI Afterburner/RivaTuner.

For CPU Real Temp or Core Temp.
