    GPU core temp and ambient temp okay? Too high? Screen shot from my video card FX5900.

    How do I get the temp reading for my motherboard? CPU temp? Chipset temp?

    Your video card te,p looks fine. To get CPU and motherboard chipset temps you must have a motherboard that allows these readings to shown. Most custom build motherboards will but most factory PC's like Dell, HP and Compact do not. Even if you add a program to read temps it won't be able to display them.

    i think that maybe some of the high end gaming machines even from dell might have the temperatures on them.

    Another option is to look into the bios, there might be a hardware monitor built in to that.

    The other option is to attach aftermarket sensors.
