Default monitoring GPU temps?

i'm having a hard time finding a program to read GPU temps. mbm5 i suppose is supposed to do it, but it always reads 0 degrees. how can i fix mbm5 to read the GPU's temp, or what is another program i could use?

Why don't you just use the nvidia drivers?

theres an option for something like "harware monitoring" or something like that, and it should pull up a graph w/ clock speeds, temps, and a lot of other important stuff related to your video card. I cant remember exactly how to get to it off-hand but I know you can get to it from the first page of rivatuner when you open it.
