    Hello,

    I cant seem to get VRM readings on my GTX 780 MSI gaming card. Maybe it is not equipped with sensors?

    What software are you using to monitor temps? Have you tried GPU-Z sensors?

    Hello, Yes GPU-Z on the sensor tab. Maybe I missed something else in the option of GPU-Z. Only temp I see is the gpu core temp.

    Just check HWInfo (run with sensors only)for me and see if anything shows up.

    EDIT: From what I've read briefly, there are a number of 780's/780ti's that lack VRM temperature sensors.

    Ok thanks. I will check tonight when at home. I'll be back. Also, I am using the standalone version.

    For what it's worth I've spent an hour or so researching into NVidia VRM sensors. Long story short, many people are asking this, and it seems either the cards are incapable of monitoring VRM temps (not likely), or NVidia goes into great effort to ensure VRM sensors are not accessible by anything besides the card itself.

    Thanks for the hard work. I'll buy a IR temp sensor to check then
