    Chip Temperature Measurement: Overheating?


    Hello,

    My notebook is behaving oddly, and I suppose it is due to overheating.
    In the past I had a small program that indicated if the fan was running (rpm) and the chips temperatures.
    It even showed this on graphics, but I don't have it anymore.
    Would you people recommend a good software to replace the old missing one?
    Any help will be much appreciated.
    Cheers,
    Flores

    What temperature do you want to measure? CPU or GPU? Try HWMonitor.

    If you want to control your GPU fan speed use MSI Afterburner to create custom fan profiles, or let it detect your GPU and control it automatically. It works very well with my 780.
