    How to find out the temperature of a video card?

    Often, PC users are faced with both problems in computer performance and various "graphic artifacts" that impede the comfortable use of technology. As a rule, the main culprit for such problems is one of the main energy consumers in the system unit - the video card. The huge load falling on this device, as well as the cooling that is not always well thought out by the manufacturer, very often leads to exceeding the temperature stipulated by the manufacturer, problems in the operation of the device, and at the end - to the death of the video card. How to prevent such a sad outcome? It's very simple - you just need to monitor the temperature of the video card, so that it does not exceed the standards set by the manufacturer.

    The maximum allowable temperature of a video card is easy to recognize - it is listed in the specifications of your device, which can be found on the manufacturer’s website,but how to know the temperature of the video card? The most accurate way is of course measuring "manually" - that is, installing an electronic thermometer on the body of a video card and measuring. But, despite the fact that this method will show the most accurate result, for most users it is unacceptable - it’s not best for a specialist to crawl into a system unit, and certainly not fix anything there so as not to cause harm on their own.

    A much simpler way is to measure the temperature of a video card using special utilities that allow you to get data from the sensors installed by the manufacturer. It is important to note that users of nVidia video cards can find out the temperature using the nVidia-settings utility installed together with the drivers, which is especially important for Linux users. However, the most popular programs for measuring the temperature of a video card are:

    • Speed ​​Fan;
    • Everest Ultimate Edition.

    Speed ​​fan

    Utility Speed ​​Fan allows you to measure the temperature of the elements of your PC - hard drive, processor and video card. The program will start temperature measurement from the moment it is started. A feature of this program is a multi-level temperature indicator.The indicator shows not only the temperature of the device, but also indicates whether it exceeds the established limits or is normal. The program allows you to display data on the temperature of one of the devices in the form of a tray icon.

    Everest Ultimate Edition

    The program Everest Ultimate Edition is a multifunctional utility that contains various benchmarks, test checks and measurements. Unlike Speed ​​Fan, Everest not only allows you to know the temperature of a video card, but provides much more information - the utility not only provides you with sensor data, but also analyzes the performance of your computer and operating system.
