I am learning about overclocking and i have successfully got my EVGA GTX 660 Sc to a safe overclock with no artifacts or overheating at 74+ on the gpu and 180+ on the ram.My question now is if their is a program that will record or show in real time my gpu temps while i am gaming?

I came across a thread right here on toms with the same question being asked, and the answer was to use cpu-z to record the temps that the gpu gets up to in game. That sounds great but i have downloaded and looked through cpu-z and i cannot find how to record those gpu temps. If anyone could be so kind as to try and explain to me how to do this i would be truly grateful.

EDIT: I found that a gpu z exists and i was trying to use cpu-z XD! I just got gpu-z and all i had to do was click on the sensors tab and it says it will record my gpu temps in a log now! Ill try it out and see if it worked and update with the final results.

I figured it out and have a solution! Download gpu-z and click on the sensor tab. At the bottom click enable text log and have it save to your documents. I still have not figured how to get a on screen gpu temp gauge or if one even exists that works but i will mess around more wiht the software and search online and see if i can find it.

MSI Afterburner has an OSD feature and can also record IIRC.

Thanks for the reply and the help:)  msi worked perfectly its a very good program. Is there a way to select your answer as best ? Ive been helped out many times and i have never been able to see how to up vote those much appreciated comments or anything.

P.S. Ive been studding everything about building gaming pc's for a while now(2 months) and soon i will be able to give back to the toms community and (hopefully) help solve questions!

This is a little off topic, but i am ready to finish my "next gen capable pc" and i have one big question. Can i take my harddrive out of my pc i have now and plug it into my new mobo and be able to retain my copy of win 7 64 bit and all of my files? I have just enough extra cash to finish my build if i dont have to buy a new hard drive and copy of windows so im really hoping that what i want to do will work. heres a link to my final parts including the mobo i am getting.

NZXT Tempest 210 CA-TP210-01 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 40$

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM

Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell 3.4GHz LGA 1150 84W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646I54670K

ASUS Z87-A LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

I already bought and installed a gtx 660 SC and Rosewill capstone 650 watt gold cert in my current pc, and even running with my ancient dual core 3.00 ghz processor,pci express 1.0, and 3 gigs of ddr2 ram it plays borderlands on low mid seings with around 30 fps so i am hoping the new processor mobo and ram boost up my performance enough.

i am sorry for the long wall of text, but can be a long winded guy and i hate to cut short what i wanted to ask and say.
