Hi there,

I get a sense my video card is running hotter now and the fan is spinning faster. is there a app that can tell me the rpms or the video card and its temp?

I already own hardware monitor and used smcfan and didnt see it there.

Thanks so much

I don't think there is a way to do this on the mac side of things. However, it seems to do of good job of keeping it from overheating. I wouldn't worry about it.

For whatever reason, I've gone through two X1900 boards that eventually flaked out. Maybe it's not overheating, but it seems like the most likely reason.
