Are there any programs available for monitoring and measuring GPU temperature? I'd prefer something free, and for either Windows XP or Windows 7.

I've removed the second part. At the moment I just need the software. –  Isxek Mar 11 '10 at 17:12

From the makers of CPU-Z: HWMonitor. Small, free, and can measure video card GPU temperatures.

CPUZ http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php is a free utility for such things. Also GPUZ http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/ is good too, for graphic cards.

Used both software before. Unless I'm mistaken, CPU-Z is more for processors (CPUs) and GPU-Z doesn't really provide GPU temperature. But your link did lead me to HWMonitor, so +1 for that :) –  Isxek Mar 11 '10 at 17:01

If it's a Dell Precision, an excellent utility is the Dell fan control utility. It's got tray icons, graphs, manual and automatic fan speed adjustments, ...

This also appears to be something for CPUs only. I need something for the video card (GPU), not the CPU. –  Isxek Mar 11 '10 at 17:09

SpeedFan monitors hardware and can read values such as temperatures, fan speeds, voltages, etc.
