How do I check graphics card temperature?

This question can be answered in several ways, depending on the type of system and type of graphics card you have.

If you are running a desktop with an Nvidia GPU, you can use the company’s own GeForce Experience app to monitor your GPU’s temperature. GeForce Experience is available as a free download from the official website. Once you open the app, click on the Preferences tab and select Hardware Monitoring from the left panel. This will open a window detailing the current temperature of your GPU. You can also set a target temperature range for your GPU (in Celsius), and once it goes beyond that range, GeForce Experience will notify you.

If you have an AMD graphics card, you can use their Radeon Settings app to track the temperature of your graphics card. To do this, first open Radeon Settings and click on the System tab on the left panel. Navigate to the Performance Monitoring section and you will be able to view the current temperature of your GPU, as well as the maximum temperature it has reached in the past. You can also set an upper limit for the GPU temperature, so that if it ever reaches that limit, the app will notify you.

On laptops, you may also be able to view your GPU temperatures from the BIOS. To access the BIOS, reboot your computer and press the key indicated after powering up (usually “Del” or “F2”). Once you are in the BIOS interface, look for a section named “Hardware Monitor” or something similar. Here, you should be able to view the temperatures for all the components in your laptop, including the GPU.

For more advanced temperature monitoring, you can use third-party tools such as SpeedFan, HWMonitor, and Open Hardware Monitor. These programs display more detailed information about all the hardware components in your system and can usually be used to adjust fan speeds and other settings. They also let you view the temperature of other hardware components, such as the CPU and motherboard.

Overall, there are many options available for checking the temperature of your graphics card. If you have an Nvidia or AMD graphics card, you can use their respective software to track GPU temperatures. For laptops, you may be able to view temperatures from the BIOS. Otherwise, you can use third-party tools to get a more detailed overview of your system’s temperature.
