Yeah,,HWmonitor is pretty good,,speccy is also good,,,or you can use GPU-z to record your temps in a notepad when you are in-game

HW monitor sometimes shows fake temps, you can use AMD Overdrive if you are using AMD hardware.

Speccy is really simple,,use that,,,but if you wanna see how your GPU temps fair when you are in-game,,alt+tab-ing would not help,,so i suggest get GPU-z as well,,,,enable "Log to file" in sensors tab and it will record all your temps for you

I am in the OEM Dell case still. Today I cut a hole in the side of it and super glued a piece of glass from an old picture frame. I installed some LED lights that I had laying around. It looks awesome for a free upgrade IMO.
My only concern is that the airflow in this case is horrible and I was thinking about installing a fan in the front and drilling some holes in the side. I just did not know if I should be that concerned about temps.
Does any know where I can find max operating temps for CPU GPU

for your cpu, keep it under ~80c and the gpu under ~85c

dude you dont need to worry,,,most gpuz today can handle temps around 95 degrees,,,but i dont think you have to worry as long as it is around mid 80s,,,but i dont think you are going to reach that temp,,throw in a fan if you wanna

Maximum operating temperature for your CPU is up to 71 C

Maximum operating temperature for your EVGA GPU is up to 95 C.. (Given in that table)

The 750ti has got a TDP of 60W,so temps would max temps would be around 95C and for the cpu(x4 630),it's a 95W processor and it's max. operating temp. would is 55C-71C.

max temps are not measured by the TDP of the card, the TDP is how much power the card draws. otherwise, a R295 x2 could reach 500c and be ok.

I have one exhaust fan that I think is 92mm and that is it for airflow. I was considering drilling a grid of holes on the bottom right side of the side panel and installing a 120mm pulling air in. I do not have any 3pins on my mobo so I would have to get a 4pin molex to 3pin adapter which would leave that fan running at 100%. I already have a spare fan laying around.

lol ok, modern amd cpu's can get up to about 80c before they will start to throttle and age faster, and gpu's around 85c, maybe a little lower for nvidia gpu's.

My HD7750 with a TDP of just 55W doesn't ever reaches >60-61C, so nvidia calls the 750Ti 'power efficient" ? What a joke

the 750 Ti is one of the most power efficient gpu's out there, no other card of that wattage will give you the same performance. i think you need to research the difference between tdp and max wattage and max temp a little :)
