How do I check temps? (560 ti)

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So......I just recently got a 560 ti. BUT it was not from newegg, it was the Nvidia branded one from best buy. Now before everyone explodes at why I bought it was best buy it was because I had a 100$ gift card from there (and I don't ever buy anything ever from Best Buy so.....figured might as well use it there).

ANYWAYS, im noticing there is no temp indicator on Nvidia control panel......how do I check my temps or do I need to DL something else? (I haven't had an Nvidia in a LONG time).

HWmonitor will list all system temps including GPU. (Current High Low)

GPU-Z will show you more indepth information about the status of the cards.

Download MSI afterburner. You can use that to overclock as well.

You can also use AB to re adjust your video cards fan profile. nvidia has the fan spooling up @ about 80c. I like mines coming on at 70c, yes it makes a difference IMHO.

EVGA Precision is very useful for any nvidia-based graphics card. You can manually increase fan speed, can access settings to easily overclock, and can enable an in-game FPS/temp monitor as well

As long as you keep it under 95C or so

Im pretty sure it's a ti, the box said ti......and GPU-Z shows Geoforce 560 ti. unless both are lying.
I mean GPU-Z is showing 384 shaders and the other stuff seems correct. Dammit.....now you have me worried. I mean the website and box shows 560 ti, and the shaders/mhz etc seem correct and GPU-Z and MSI afterburner say 560 ti?
