What i would want to know is if there is a soft like Fraps, but instead of showing the FPS counter on the corner of the screen, it shows the GPU temp?

And also: Is there a program that closes all programs if temp gets high, or at least advises you with a sound of some sort?

 

Thanks in advance!Big Smile

Why yes sir there is....it's called Riva Tuner! You'll have to read up on how to set it up for your particular needs, but you can enter a command line that will shut down your pc once your gpu reaches a certain temp. I have it set up on my desktop, it was fairly easy to do, but I did it a while ago so I couldn't walk you through doing it. Also when you start Riva Tuner you can have it display your GPU temp both in-game and in your toolbar. It's really a great piece of software.

This is my Sig. There are many like it but this one is mine.

OIIIIIIIIO

I have rivatuner set to open When I start my computer. Its very intimidating looking but it will warn you before you do anything bad. I agree with Savage. It should reach your needs and more.

Thanks, Rivatuner is just what i needed. I installed  Rivatuner a long while ago, but didnt know it could monitor GPU Temp.
