I'm currently in the process of overclocking. I use Coretemp to monitor my cpu temp as there is an option to minimize it so that there are 4 little numbers in the bottom right of the task bar.
I use MSI afterburner when playing games so i can keep an eye on graphics cards fan speeds and temps on my secondary monitor.
I was wondering is there something like coretemp for fan speeds. The only fans i need to watch for awhile till i settle on an overclock speed will be the one on the Coolmaster v6gt (so CPU fan) and then also the temp and fan speed of the RAM cooler.
I got Speedfan but the user interface seems a bit clunky. Ideally I'd like to have something small that sits in the taskbar or maybe a small windows 7 gadget type thing.
I use Everest Ultimate to monitor most of my hardware, the intake/exhaust fans are connected to a fan controller (no way of monitoring those unless I physically look at the controller). I also use my secondary screen to monitor everything, here's an example :
this is Jak_Sparra. i cant get logged in my old account for some reason so i had to create this one. Thank you for your replies. i'm using CUPID Harware Monitor for now. But i think i'll give the gadget idea a go.
