  • GPU Monitoring

    Are there any programs that will issue a monitoring overlay while in game for GPU's? RiviaTuner wont work with my new GPU as the card is too new, and ATI Tray Tools keeps giving my system the BSOD on loadup for some reason


    I just bought a Power Color HD6950

    This should work. Most people use it for overclocking anyway.

      Re: GPU Monitoring

      I haven't found any good overlay programs that aren't minimalistic (like CoreTemp is). The closest one I use is:

      It's GPU-Z, so you'll have to open up the program and go to the second tab to view GPU temps.

        GPU-z has no ingame overlay.

          It doesn't hence why I said you had to open it up to see the GPU temps.

            If you were using an nvidia card i would have said EVGA's Precision.

              Re: GPU Monitoring

              Just tested it myself, though not in any modern games, but Chewy's suggestion of using MSI's Afterburner's game overlay does work. There's also a checkbox in options that supposedly works with the LCD panel on the G15 as well.

                GPU-Z has a G15 plugin, works on my G19 keyboard too.

                  My solution involves GPU-Z and a second monitor.

                    I 2nd that. Even if you have to borrow a 2nd monitor from somewhere, it is worth it for testing. Hell, when I first started running 2 monitors, I used a CRT I found in the dumpster. So worth it.

                      It does work, I used it. I prefer having my temps on my other monitor using Rainmeter thought.

                      MSI afterburner is almost identical to EVGA precision. Frankly, I have no idea why the overclocking community prefers it over EVGA Precision, maybe because you don't need an EVGA card and it works on ATI cards too. I use it for overclocking though.
