Hey all. I've sucessfully oc'ed my fx5900XT, but I am unsure of how it is handling it temp-wise.

Is there any software out there that can create a graph of my GPU temperatures while I'm playing games and such?

Otherwise, all I can do is run Aquamark 3 a quickly exit and go into the Nvidia utility, but I don't think I'm getting an accurate measurement that way due to the time it takes to exit Aquamark 3 and enter the Nvidia utility.

Last time I did that it showed the GPU at 57C, would that be too high? That crazy Nvidia utility says that it will only start to slow down the GPU at 140C. That seems incredibly high to me, I wonder if they got that confused with Farenhiet?


Otherwise, Aquamark 3 ran pretty good with no artifacts. I currently have overclocked it like this:

390 core @ 431
700 mem @ 720

I really think I should be monitoring the temps like this, but I just don't know how.
