Default Any software to monitor the cpu/gpu temperatures?

Hey guys !

is there any software you have used and would highly recommend to monitor the cpu/gpu temperatures?

do cpu coolers like Antec Freezer Pro 7 cool the pc without the need for a fan controller or do they need one?

Thanks!

ATITool monitors temperatures of the video card. It works with Nvidia cards, too.

For the most accurate CPU temp reading use either TAT or CoreTemp.

However Speedfan and everest read very close as well.

For GPU I prefer ATI tool becuase you can run the Cube image in the back to see what your temps are really like when playing a game.

yeah I use Everest because it displays whatever I want on my little logitech g15 screen.

And for my C2D Everest has been very accurate...but when I had my AMD it said my CPU was -92c or something crazy....

You no not need a Fan controller. Just mount it and plug in your fan to the 2 pin connector that is usually by the RAM slots. Thats it :P
