GPU-Z won't show VRM temps?

good morning my lads. i was checking my VRM temps yesterday, just on stock to see how high they're now, but i can't find the VRM temps.

GPU-Z only shows GPU Temp, GPU temp #1, GPU temp #2, and GPU temp #3. they don't display the same, so i think they are different sensors, but which one is/are the VRM temps?

another oddity is that GPU-Z somehow can't show Fan speed properly, for some reason. this isn't really a problem as it displays fine in %, but still an oddity.

this was just after boot, with everything idle. i am using GPU-Z 0.5.1 (latest), with an ATI Radeon HD 5850 PcS+

Hi.

Download and use MSI Afterburner.

i do use MSI afterburner, but that only shows the GPU core temp. not the VRM temps. that's why i wanted to use GPU-Z.

Heh... woops!

Well I have reference model 5850s which have core, ram, and vrm temps. Unfortunately there's no way to really know which is which without some experimentation. For example leave clocks the same and increase the voltage a bunch, or only increase VRAM speed. Afterburner gives you core temp so you can match that number to one of these to know which is core, and then the other two are probably one of vrm and vram.
