So now i have my psu and my card, i didnt install the card yet though and i want to try and clean up my comp all around before i can install it. When both are in and workin though i want to make sure they run nice and cool. Only thing is i don't know what kinda program people use to find out the tmeperature and performance specs of their individual computer parts. I just don't want to be the guy finding out he could bake brownies iside his case. I think i may have found the program though earlier is it something like 3dmark or something, is it hard to use at all, and are those programs only for finding out the performance and temp of your video card or can they find out the temp and performance of any computer part.

Make sure your hardware has temperature sensors on them.

Pretty much any CPU these days has one, so go to the BIOS and check 'PC Health' (Depending on BIOS version) and it should say it.

For which components though, are u talking about psus or videocards because psus dont even have drivers right since basically there just simple tools right, i know video cards have drivers though. But how do you there drivers ram? Wait also how do u find out how computer parts hold up during games if it's at all possible.

Like I said, you can't get temperature readings off a piece of hardware, unless they have a temp sensor on them. The GeForce 6 Series and up, and the Radeon 9800 series and up have temp sensors on them.

If you want to find a specific heat of a certain component that doesn't have heat sensors (Ram, PSU), you will have to buy a seperate temperature sensor.
