I've recently installed a new cooler in my video card, and i want to see if the memory heatsinks it included, are installed correctly and are doing their job.

I've already tried Riva Tuner, GPU-Z, Expert Tool (my video card manufacturer's program) and none of them has that option.

Is there any program that monitors video card temperatures?

GPU-Z have this monitor on "Sensors" tab, but - beware: running GPU-Z himself heats card, I got 45->51 jump in seconds – Lazy Badger Jan 6 '12 at 19:45

If you want to be sure you can monitor the embedded controller. You need to find the correct register. A good program is RW it can read most of the embedded controller.
