Default Temp?

Hi

I am just wondering how you guys tell the temp of your machine after you have just played a game?

Also I have read in a thread something about telling the temp of your video card how do you find out the temp of your vid card?

Thanx

PS I have a 6600GT

for finding the temp of pc while or right after playing a game, get everst from www.lavalys.com

for the vid card, im not too sure, but i believe that if you have 66.93 drivers or above, it tells the temperature

Default Re: Temp?

yeah, but it depends if he has an MSI card, cuz the coolers r different. but if he wants to check during the game, i think all he has to do is press clt -esc; that works in my games.

Default Re: Temp?

To check ur gpu temp, b4 opening the game right click on desktop and go into ur vid card settings and go to temp. Then go into ur game. Now u can either switch screens by holding alt and pressing tab, or ctrl esc as stated above or quit the game. The first screen that pops up is ur temp settings so u can see how hot the GPU is running, but yes it does cool down very quickly so thats why its best to have ur settings window open already.
My MSI card runs games at 55C and thats when its OC'd to 550/1.14. I never see purple spots. Money_man, maybe ur settings are too high.

Default Re: Temp?

If there isn't a temperature gauge shown the way the people above are telling you, then you need to edit the firmware of the graphics card with a HEX editor... I found a step-by-step guide to it somewhere on the Internet, but I don't remember where. Sorry...
