It's pretty to monitor temperature for safety. I love to see it often.
My PC is beside my bed. I keep it silent.
And overdrive can automatic reduce the bus speed when get hot.
Many ATI card can't monitor the fan speed too.
nVidia has on-die sensor in all chips, very exellent.
I need avivo from ATI otherwise I will buy a nVidia card.
Many ATI cards can't monitor temp. until X1650XT.
