    Is there a program that is like core temp but for my GPU? I like the way coretemp keeps the highest it has been etc and can minimizeit to the tray.

    Not sure if this is the right place to put this but if anyone is interested on a quick read/guide with some decent apps then have a look at this months PC Format. Has small OCing guides on intel/amd cpus, gpu and ram (only basic stuff though) aswell as having a nice set of apps on the free dvd (fraps, core temp, cpuz, gpuz and a load more).

    Seemed like a nice little pack really along with a basic guide on case modding (just painting, fan mounting etc). Dont usually like the mag but it was pretty decent with a dvd that could be useful to someone.

    MSI Afteburner not in the GPU overclocking list of software? I recommend it highly, got my GTX 560Ti easily to 1GHz

    Have you tried running compatibility mode for XP?

    Right click, Properties, Compatibility

    Could someone tell me what are the best apps to use for monitoring temps?
    I just finished my first ever build and I'm planning to do a bit of overclocking some time in the future,currently using asus fan expert and speed fan.

    lol wow i nearly posted the following thanks to my phone's predictive text "Currently using anal fan expert" fail lol

    I realize there is a list of apps posted by op but which are the best,don't really fancy downloading all of them :)
