    I was looking for a good desktop gadget for my GPU's , Yes one that can see both GPU's one that can read the temp's and usage of both GPU's and memory along with speed and all the good stuff . I have come across 2 but they both lack what GPU-Z shows . I know some people would say just use GPU-Z but I really would like a desktop gadget for this . I was wondering if any of you TPU techs could make one that can do this . I am not a tech nor do I know any thing about making apps. , So I ask you is there any one here that can ? If so Thank You ahead of time . I know of only one that could do this W1zzard and ask could you do this ? :respect:

    The thing is I really don't want to install Riva or any thing like that . As it is I have All CPU meter installed with Core temp , I like this one but I was hoping that there was or is one that I would not have to install another program to have it run on start up . So other than having to do all this is there any thing ells ?

    Thank you . I got these they want me to install Everest or Riva and well the other one doesn't let you see crossfire or re-size it . I think some one here that is tech minded could do a way better job . I sure hope so . :respect:

    Ok now we are getting some were You edited and I got this one seems better . Thank you .

    Does what ?

    GPU monitor is ok but it doesn't show crossfire nor does it show memory usage ( Even when I have it checked to do so. ) SO there are still things that need to be done to get it right . Like showing this stuff .

    msi afterburner can be installed in place of riva to set your own fan profiles etc,but i use it for showing the gpu temp down by the clock and with the pcb/memory/ambient temps monitors enabled in afterburner,you can use GPU monitor gadget to view the rest of the temps

    Well I have CCC to set my fan speeds and I really don't like to mess with all them secondary programs to do this . I have had little to no success with MSI and the others . I just wished some one would make a good gadget to go with the GPU .

    yes thats agreed a good gadget that covers all temps without needing multiple programs running would be very sensible!

    Poor GPU Observer Function

    Hi, I've downloaded/installed the GPU observer but all it shows are Core Temp and PCB temp. The fan speeed is shown as -1 and the GPU stays at 0%. In the tech profile I forgot to say that I do have W 7 SP1. The fan is what came in the GTX260. If anyone out there has ideas on this I'd sure like to hear them. My sidebar is pretty well filled vertically so I can't really go much larger.
