Hi, Is it my motherboard that senses the temperature of the cpu and video card? If so where do I go to read the temperature?

You can use some free apps to check your temps. (just google 'em)

CPU: CoreTemp, RealTemp

GPU: GPU-Z

I use Everest for everyday monitoring of all onboard sensors in concert with my g15 LCD screen which allows viewing of load temps while gaming and such.

If you want to monitor everything in one program I would suggest you try hwmonitor. Its made by the makers of GPU-Z and GPU-Z so I find it very accurate.

I read in the manual for my motherboard and it had "Easy Tune 5" software that I could download at Gigabyte website. It does give me cpu temp and fan speed monitoring plus some other things. I still will need something for my video card. I will check out your suggestions. Thanks

Generally you should stay away from utilities that are made by motherboard makers. They often use temperatures from the motherboard and not on the chip which can vary by up to 10*C
