I have been wondering... is there any cpu heat monitoring programs that have like an "overlay" function like fraps have with fps?
Would be nice to be able to run a game in full screen while being able to watch the cpu/gpu temps..
You can alt/tab to see the temp or you can view the temps after your done playing. It'll tell you the minimum and maximum temps the cpu (and all your other components) reached while you were gaming.
I see absolutely no reason why you would need to see the temps on the game screen.
There are some games where you can lose the game close the window (Games like Killing Floor) and if I have to check afterwards I have to keep an eye on the time while I'm playing. Don't get me wrong it's not like I won't go with this, but if there is something that allow me to check temps. without any major effort, and see the exact scenarios where the heat i causing problems I would go with that instead. I think that will be more accurate than having to remember every scenario and the time.
If I had another display and if my system could handle it (Don't think it can) I would probably do the same. Will remember that one
A 2nd display used to show 2D applications (rather than extend game resolution) has almost no impact on game performance full-screen or windowed. All you need is a video card with multiple outputs, which is almost any card manufactured in the past ~10 years.
