I was just wondering how you all monitor your core temp (and anything else like graphics cards, mobo or whatever). Of course I googled it, but there are a bazillion different programs that I saw pop up on the screen that claim to monitor things like that but rather than blindly choose one, I figured I'd ask the pros.

I'm going to try my hand at a little overclocking and just want to get an good idea on how my system runs now on stock speeds and watch how it changes after I overclock.

I am not sure if mobo/cpu/gpu are relevant, but just in case:

Mobo: MSI 870A-G54

CPU: AND Phenom II X4 955 BE 3.2GHz

GPU: Radeon 5770

I don't think you have to set the TJMax on an AMD, but I currently don't have a late model AMD CPU to test that on.

oh sweet, I have CPU-Z and like their product thus far so I'll give their HWmonitor a go. Thanks dpunisher and Blaze for the tips.

On a side note, you know what sucks....getting answers and advice on this forum while I'm at work and not anywhere near my computer.....being a grown up sucks lol.
