Click on the PROCESSOR ICON and minimize the app ... keep you eye on the upper right hand corner for the CPU info.
There's also a program called GPU-Z ... not sure if it tell GPU temp or not.
I have always bought my comps from Dell. I've always been a gamer and was wanting to get a new box. Looked up all the costs and found that itd be way less expensive to buy it all and put together myself.
Problem: In mid game (some times 5 mins into game some times 2 hours into game) Without warning goes to blues screen and all i cant really catch is something aboutm "Hardware" and that its shutting down to prevent further problems. If i leave the comp on all day it has no problem..... its only when im playing games.
I figured it 1 of 3 things... power supply not strong enough, over heating, or just shouldnt have bought a vid card from ZOTAC. But i dont know!!!!!
Specs for this comp:
Vid Card: GeForce 9600 GT (512mb)
Memory: Kingston PC 6400 (1g x2)
Processor: Core 2 Duo E8400
Motherboard: ASUS P5N-D
Power Supply: Cool Power 500 by Eagle tech inc.
SOMEONE PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO HELP... LOT OF MONEY TO SPEND ON A COMP AND NOT GET TO ENJOY IT!
