    Hey guys,

    This isnt a tutorial. Just a few questions i have. Right now i'm trying to display the temperature of my CPU. I have rivatuner installed, msi afterburner, gpu-z, coretemp and fraps.

    Simply, i would like to find a way to display my core temperature while in game.

    Right now, i can see FPS and GPU temperature while i'm playing Crysis 2.

    I've had my m14x for a little over a week and i'm in love, it hasn't left my person since i got it. I take it to school, work and wherever else i go (besides gym.)

    Thanks for your help,
    -Matt

    The only 2 programs you'll need is MSI Afterburner and CoreTemp.
    In CoreTemp look for something about "sensor". (I can't remember it well because I did this a while ago.)
    You'll see different statistics such as temperatures and clock frequencies from your CPU. Click on one and then somewhere you can choose to show it in OSD.

    Start Afterburner, start your game and enable the on-screen display.

    i'm gonna keep looking, but if you have anything else that would help me, that would be appreciated

    Oh I am sorry, I am mixing programs up. The programs I used was HWiNFO64/HWiNFO32 with MSI Afterburner.

    When i'm in HWiNFO64, i click "sensors" and another window pops up, it gives the temperature of your cpu and gpu and a whole bunch of other crap, when i right click on the cpu all i can do is display it in the tray on the bottom right of my taskbar. I can't get it in OSD.

    Thanks for all your help so far.
    The cpu temp. doesn't seem too important, but i know that it gets hotter then the gpu and i just wanted to be able to monitor it.
