    Default optimus monitoring cpu/nvidia gpu temp during gaming

    Hwmonitor does not show the nvidia gpu temp.

    The only single app that show both is speedfan , it also has a chart function to monitor the temp history graphical though it`s limited.

    Is their any other single app that does the same as speedfan.

    Realtemp is good.

    For in game though Rivatuner is your best bet, or MSI afterburner, which i personally use, I don't show my CPU temp in game though as it never rises above 50 degrees with my water cooling.

    Realtemp shows cpu/gpu temp , though it only shows min/max temp , a graph is better as it shows you how long you were at a temp before the fans rev up.

    Rivatuner - MSI afterburner , not after overclocking.

    thanks

    Your title says "monitoring cpu/nvidia gpu temp during gaming" so i gathered you wanted to know that, like i say Rivatuner and MSI afterburner have options to view GPU temp during gaming, GPU usage, fps etc, not just for overclocking.

    MSI afterburner also has a graph, which is what i use.

    Here is an example:

    You have to run the game using the dedicated card, then open HWMonitor and the GPU should appear there. Had the same problem with you until I figured out that the GPU has to be initialised before it appears in HWMonitor
