Can anyone point me at a nice app for monitoring my CPU and GPU temperatures please?

I'm attempting to stop my graphics card from crapping out all the time. I've added a new double fan that blows right at the card, so I'm hoping that'll help.

I used to monitor my CPU temp from a KDE widget, but now I'm using Cinnamon, I'm not sure how to do the job. Plus I also want to look at the graphics card - something I didn't do under KDE anyway.


Cheers

Well there is one in the 'NVIDIA X Server setting' program and if you can add to cinnamon there is a gnome panel app called Hardware Sensor Monitor which shows GPU temp.

I use a neat little monitoring program called gkrellm, which can monitor all sorts of system activity. To enable it to monitor temperatures and fan speeds you first have to install a support program called lm-sensors. With this installed you run (as root) sensors-detect which detects as many hardware sensors as it can find and configures the necessary kernel modules to be loaded to use them.

Thanks. Got it up and running. I've managed to turn off most of the rubbish I don't need and configure it just to display temperatures. Very Happy
