    I know we can see GPU usage, FPS, memory and stuff with MSI Afterburner, but I'd like to see stuff like CPU usage, as well as how much across all cores.

    I know there are programs I can run OUTSIDE of said program, but is there any CPU usage overlay like MSI Afterburner?

    been wondering about that myself, would be nice to see core usage and those things when some of the games are multi-core enabled supposedly

    Yeah there used to be a CPU plugin for Rivatuner, but I haven't found a version of it that is compatible with afterburner.

    I was able to get afterburner working with the Rivatuner GPU Monitor gadget, but I wish I could get the CPU meter working with it instead of having to have a second gadget.

    Monitoring is the only reason I use my Logitech G13 gameboard at all.

    My G19 is really good for monitoring CPU cores + GPU use, temps, memory used...
    It displays CPU data from Coretemp or with 4 moving clocks.
    GPU data is fed from MSI Afterburner

    I wish nVidia Inspector would adopt an on-screen display feature like what's in Afterburner.... I'm considering installing Precision to see what features it has now. Haven't touched it since '08....but Afterburner irritates me....

    Precision uses Afterburners code, so you won't see it more advanced.

    Damn, so still no way without a G15 / Logitech mini LCD Display. Frustrating. I dislike their Keyboards.

    Shouldn't you be gaming instead of monitoring CPU usage. It will only distract you... :p

    In case you want a solution. I have two monitors. One to have my game at fullscreen. And on the other one I have my Windows 7 Gadgets: Intel Core Series and GPU Observer to do the job :)

    Maybe you can reserve screenspace for gadgets so they are always visible. Thats maybe also a one monitor solution.

    I use AtiTrayTools.
    ATT can show the Core usage or the Core temp.

    Get dual monitors and open up task manager on one of them.

    Then you can monitor EVERYTHING going on with your computer and even browse the web or whatever without having to alt-tab out.

    Yeah, CPU Core.
    You can see it on my snapshots.
    The first line shows the 4 cores (0,1,2,3)
    The Core usage in % or the Core temp in °C.
