[Solved] New Problem

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I was wondering how exactly to find my GPU Temp. I have lm-sensors installed and this is the output of sensors:
Code:
[pap3r][UBox][~]$ sensors
k8temp-pci-00c3
Adapter: PCI adapter
Core0 Temp:
             +27°C
Core1 Temp:
             +36°C

it8712-isa-0290
Adapter: ISA adapter
VCore 1:   +1.39 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)   
VCore 2:   +0.00 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)   ALARM
+3.3V:     +3.34 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)   
+5V:       +5.03 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +6.85 V)   
+12V:     +11.97 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max = +16.32 V)   
-12V:      -4.17 V  (min = -27.36 V, max =  +3.93 V)   
-5V:      -13.64 V  (min = -13.64 V, max =  +4.03 V)   ALARM
Stdby:     +4.97 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +6.85 V)   
VBat:      +3.07 V
fan1:        0 RPM  (min =    0 RPM, div = 8)          
fan2:        0 RPM  (min =    0 RPM, div = 8)          
fan3:     1467 RPM  (min =    0 RPM, div = 8)          
M/B Temp:    +32°C  (low  =    -1°C, high =  +127°C)   sensor = thermistor   
CPU Temp:    +28°C  (low  =    -1°C, high =  +127°C)   sensor = thermistor   
Temp3:       +28°C  (low  =    -1°C, high =  +127°C)   sensor = thermistor   

[pap3r][UBox][~]$
NOTE: CPU and M/B Temps are backwards for come reason... I also have no idea what Temp3 is...

Your GPU sensor will not be detected by lm_sensors. You can do as hobo said and run the above commands, or you can open up nvidia-settings in GUI mode and it will have the temp listed there, or you can use something like Gkrellm which will automatically detect and display it.

You and I have the same sensors: k8temp and it87. Gkrellm is what I use as my desktop temp monitor.

And, one more thing, if you want your sensors to load at boot time, go to

/etc/modprobe.preload

and add:

k8temp
it87

I just have the sensors applet running, that keeps me happy.

I had gkrellm also, but had never thought to open it...

Any idea what that Temp3 is? I have an HDD sensor in windows, so I'm thinking that might be it, it's just awfully cool, 29C right now.

Right on, thanks for that Reps around

EDIT

You two were joking right? About using windows programs? Lol. And nTune? ROFL nFAIL. Worst program available.

My k8temp sensor detects FOUR cores, even though I have a dual core processor. I just picked the two with the highest reading and went with it.

My it87 sensor provides my "overall" processor temp on "temp 3." However, it reads 5 degrees lower than my BIOS, so I simply made Gkrellm report it's reading at +5 degrees to coincide with the BIOS. I am not sure which is accurate, but I would prefer to go with my BIOS, so adding 5 degrees doesn't bother me as the temp never goes over 40C anyway.

As for nTune, yes there is a native version of it for Linux. I don't use it, but it does exist.

Wow, I didn't know the nTune thing. I hated nTune in windows... New quetsion though. I just bought an 8800GT and I was wondering how Gfx card updates in linux go. In windows I'd just uninstall the drivers and plug it in, the install new drivers. How does it work in 'Buntu? I've been using linux for the past couple months, full time, but I have yet to do major hardware upgrades, which are soon to come.

There are a few different driver packages in Linux for nVidia cards. How often nVidia updates the drivers, I am not sure.

In most distros (especially Ubuntu), you should simply be able to go to the package manager and simply click upgrade. The package manager should take care of the rest. Ubuntu is pretty good about keeping their packages up to date.

If you want to try out a brand new driver not available in the repositories for your distro, you will have to compile it from source and then install it without X running. Not fun, but definitely doable if you have the time.

Yeha, I have always had very bad experiences compiling the drivers manually... My xorg file always @#%@ up. Even through envy, or the like... Alright, I should receive the card tomorrow or Wednesday, so I'll do it that way. Thanks
