I don't know if its the best but I like using afterburner for monitoring my gpu temps. It shows the top temp as well as a recent past history in a graph.

The problem with the trixx one is it doesn't work for 4+ gpu rigs. It doesn't show every gpu. It also is super tiny. I assume the gadget one is some what similar.

Clocktweak is a great command line app for overclocking.  I use it to monitor temps.  No fancy graphs, but it gets the job done.  Low overhead also.

Aida64 http://www.aida64.com/ Use to be everest.

From time to time I'll fire up gpu-z to compare, usually they are on par "same".

You can configure the naming scheme, you'll see below in orange, is my first card, the second same names in green are my 2nd card, you can name it to what you like.


Also for a free version you could use hwinfo

I didn't think the Windows version of the catalyst driver supported more than 4 GPUs, does it now?

As for viewing temps etc in Windows: GPU Caps viewer.

Yes you can have 8 GPU cores with Windows 7 and the latest Catalyst drivers.

You don't even need dongles on the cards anymore.

Use clocktweak in observer mode to see GPU temps Smiley

What error is that?
Usually it's either; you have an expired beta version, or a driver conflict!

cgminer 2.0.0 now displays each GPU's temperature right alongside its hashrate.

Yes!  Without a doubt, it's an awesome piece of code.

EDIT: Fixed original post.  Nvidia monitoring may be forthcoming?

I've used both for years for my Overclocking. They are the best IMHO.

For Windows I like a mix between MSI Afterburner & CPUID HWMonitor

GPU-Z because it provides ALL the temp data (including VRM temps).

Have seen lots of people posting "I am having GPU load drop to 92% but my temp is 85C".  Well there isn't one "temp" there are 8 temps and VRM (which isn't shown in cgminer, afterburner, etc) can get very hot (120C hot) and much hotter than GPU core.  When that happens thermal/current protection kicks in and GPU gets throttled until temps are back in line.  Then GPU goes back to 100%, VRM overheats, throttle down to 9x%, back to 100%, etc.
