Good program to monitor GPU/CPU Temperatures
« on: January 23, 2014, 09:26:46 PM »
I'm trying to find a good program to monitor my computer/graphics card temperatures.  Everywhere I look seems to recommend a different program, and some look a bit sketchy.

Anyone here use a good, reputable one they can recommend?

Thanks.

I monitored my processors temperature with Core Temp.

Are you looking for "at a glance" or history based monitoring?

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll check them out.  At a glance is all I need.  Just wanted a simple way to see what my graphics card temperatures are during gaming, for example.

Most of the apps within that list would work for at a glance, assuming you have a second display.

I monitored my processors temperature with Core Temp.

I use CoreTemp on my laptop as well, and have been pleased with it.

Are you guys getting CoreTemp from this website?  http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/

Norton seems to be removing the file as malware, so just wanted to make sure if it was legit, or if there was a different site.
