    Is there an equivalent program to CPUZ/GPUZ/HWMoniter for Ubuntu that anyone knows about.

    I've been digging through all of the add set ups and i have yet to come across one. And "HWMoniter Ubuntu" in a search engine turns up Kanji based websites that dont really help much (as i cant read kanji)

    Sysinfo is what you're looking for, use add/remove to install it.

    Ah cool, i also found an Nvidia monitoring tool (basically a different version of Ntune)

    Its pretty useful
    nvidia-settings (in terminal)

    it will give you just about everything for the nvidia cards.

    Is there anything that will monitor HDD temps? At this point that seems to be the only thing i'm lacking.

    I just execute this code in bash when I want to know what my hdd temperature is:

    Code:
    # sudo smartctl -a /dev/sda | grep 'Temperature'
    That's assuming you have smartctl installed. It won't do anything except return device attributes. It's the quick, CLI way of doing it, which is good for me since I often find myself in runlevel 3. :D

    What about processor voltage control?
    I want one.

    For processor frequency/voltage control, you can use cpufreqd. (It's cpufrequtils in Arch.)

    For monitoring, you can use the sensors-applet frontend to lm_sensors. It's a GNOME app, though, so it comes with heavy GNOME dependencies. There should be an analogous kicker applet for KDE.

    I believe you can also use hdparm

    just installed this. pretty nifty. for the nvidia folks, be sure you have nvidia-settings which supplies libnvctrl.

    I'm surprised no one mentioned gkrellm yet. Great tool, use it all the time. Many built-in monitors. If you have lmsensors installed, you can also view CPU and HDD temperature, fan speed, and lots of other stuff.
