    Do any of you have a utility etc for measuring the TEMP of the CPU, MB and in particular the GRAPHICS card??

    I used to have an ASUS mb which came with a neat utility, but that only did the CPU & MB. I now have a passively cooled GPU and I am keen to key an eye on its temperature (at least to start with)

    Thanks

    I believed both recent NVidia and ATI Control Panels have such a monitor.

    I know that the Nvidia control panels do, having used nvidia for a good while now. However I can't find similar on the ATI panel.

    I tried a third party tool; atitool, but this does not yet support the x800xl :(

    thanks

    I use speedfan http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php to keep a check on my GPU temp. Of course it only works if your motherboard supports all the sensors but mine does and I find it a good utility for monitoring temperatures.

    Thanks Valhoudini
    I tried that, my MB also seems to be unsupported at the moment - MSI MS480M-IL2
    hey ho.

    I also tried MBM and Hmonitor

    At least I can get the temperatures during boot up :)
