I am not sure if this is the right place to ask this so I apologize if this is in the wrong area. My question is my hubby's computer has a Radeon 5970 and we are trying to use GPU Observer to monitor the temp. The temp is showing at 0 I know the 5970 is a dual card is there away to monito both temps. From the drop down menu I have the options from choosing 0-4 radeon 5900 series. Which do I choose? Thanks

That's a nice find. You may not be able to show both though, and would have to use something like HWMonitor. The website that has the GPu Observer also has a HWMonitor windows gadget.
May i also suggest MSI Afterburner? It monitors my 5970's temps just fine as well as allowing me to set a custom fan profile.
I currently use MSI Afterburner for my comp. I have a single card so how would I set it up for a radeon 5970? I am not sure if it would work the same way because his is a dual card. Thanks
MSI Afterburner works fine for Dual GPU setups, it does for mine. Just install it as you normally would.
Ok great but I do I set up the fans it shows gpu 1 and gpu 2 do I need to set both?
No, in Afterburner, simply go into settings, enable manual fan control in the relevant tab and have your way with the fan curve .
The fan speed will affect both GPU temps.
Ok great thanks. Do I need to check the synchronize setting for similar graphic processors box? Also does it matter if I select gpu 1 or 2? It seems to only be working if I select gpu 2? Thanks again
GPU 2 is the master GPU that Afterburner takes the main readings and settings from. So keep settings on that. And yes, check that box.
Awesome! Thanks so much Is there a place where you can go to find a good curve for his graphic card? Or is better to just leave it on the default?
It's a bit of trial and error. Afterburner has a built in GPU stressing tool called Kombustor, so make use of that.
I tend to leave it at about 30% on idle temperatures (30 - 40 degrees) and then move it diagonally up to about 80% from there. You can set it as aggressively or un-aggressively as you want depending on your tolerance of the whiney fan. With my fan curve, my GPU temp never actually goes above 60 degrees.
