    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

    The ATI Catalyst control center will tell you the temp if you look under ATI Overdrive.

    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.
