Temp showing in Game?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey I didn't know where to post this so I thought i post it here. Well I was wondering if there is a program that has your cpu temp displayed somewhere on your screen while you are playing. So I wouldn't have to minimize it to see what my temps are. for example(Counter-Strike: Source showing FPS with net_graph3) if you get my drift. I know PC Wizard 2006 displays it on your desktop but unfortunatly it doesn't show while playing a game!

Any help would be appriciated.

Im pretty sure that ATI tray tools has an overlay that you could use. Its pretty simple to use as well. And by the way, I am not talking about ATI Tool, im talking about ATI tray tools by Ray adams.

Try Everest from www.lavalys.com
Once you install it go to File -> Preferences -> Hardware Monitoring and check the box where it says "Keep OSD the topmost window (always on top)"
Then go to File -> Preferences -> Hardware Monitoring -> Icons, OSD and check the box under OSD where it says Temperatures -> CPU.

If you don't mind a little box in your way, you can try SensorsView. If you load it up, right click, choose settings, and set to always on top you could view temp inside the game. Like I said, there would be about pretty decent sized box in your way...

Anyone know what I am doign wrong? or any programss that will work 100% ? Thanks againZardokk for trying

I've looked around, but I can't seem to find anything that will do what you want. I think it's because when you play most games, they force themselves on top of everything else on your desktop to prevent interruptions. This is nice most of the time, but when you want to display temps like you do...it's a problem. I really have no idea of any kind of program that will go on top of the game. Maybe there's some sort of mod or something that will run temps.

Just go to radio shack and spend a couple of bucks for a temp probe. You can put them right next to your processor and it gives you a digital read out...
