My System Specs

Default Temperature monitor

Hi everyone.

I don't know if the post belongs in this section but here it goes.

I just changed my PSU to a HCP850. I also have a SLI of GT570. I use the GPUMeter along with the CPUMeter to monitor the activity over my comp. Recently, I noticed a lot of hot air was being shoved out of the case when running swtor. When I closed it, I saw that GPUs were around 70C and 80C. I know these are normal temps.

But what I really want to know is the temp of what is going out, mainly to see the temprature of the hot air my PSU and GPUs are exhausting. The idea I had was to use a front panel temperature monitor (with or without fan controls, I don't care) and sending those temperature sensor near the exhaust of the PSU and both GPUs. I don't want to pay much, but I do want it to look cool on an HAF-X (yeah I know, looks is not everything).

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Yes like this one.

I don't know much about these units and wanted to see what are the options, what brand to avoid, etc.

Thanks!
