How to see my temps while im in-game ?

Hey guys ! I have one question,how to see my CPU / GPU temps while im playing a game ? I've tried PlayClaw 3 ,but it doesn't show my CPU temps ,it says my cpu cores are at 0°C and I've tried Core Temp. Core Temp looks like an amaizing program,but it doesn't work aswell.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance !

Check if your game has an options for it first I think SC2 let's you display GPU temps and fps but other than that check out this tutorial. http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?m=733148

You could also try MSI Afterburner, run this in the background while gaming and it will give your GPU temp in the notification area. If you game full screen it will record a graph of you temps for you to look at when exiting the game so you can see how hot your GPU was running.

Yea you could use msi afterburner like boozad said or if you have a radeon card you could use radeon pro which has that as well as long with more advanced options for settings on graphics then catalyst control center has. I personally use radeon pro to see temp and fps and msi afterburner just for a fan profile to have my pc run quieter.

Here is what you do:

1.) Download and install either EVGA Precision or MSI Afterburner. It doesn't matter, just use the one you prefer.
2.) Make sure the On-Screen Display Server is running.
3.) Download HWiNFO either 32-bit or 64-bit. You can get either the stand-alone or the installer version. Get the installer if you are going to use this as a permanent thing.
4.) In HWiNFO go to Sensors, then go to Configure.
5.) Go to the sensor you want to show in the OSD and check the box to show it in the Rivatuner OSD. You can also pick what line to show it on and for it to be labelled or not.
6.) Close the config window and enjoy.

Am I wrong here or does ASUS has their own version of EVGA Precision or MSI Afterburner... if it does, does it do the same with temps? I ask because I have an Asus card and I would also like to check my temps while I am in the middle of a firefight

ASUS' version is called GPU Tweak, but you can use Afterburner or whichever you prefer with it.

So, in short... Yes I could use GPU Tweak + HWiNFO to see my temps.

HwMonitor logs your max temps and keep them in till you close the program, so you can tab down and check after a couple of minutes.
