Is there a temperature monitor software for the radeons in general? Had no luck with google right now. Thanks.

The only Radeons that have temperature sensors are the XT's.

Yes, like Cleeve said mostly it's only XTs that have temp. monitoring, and those now have temp monitoring built into the Catalyst drivers. Whereas before the only way to grab the temps were from RivaTuner.

There are also the TYAN Tachyon cards which have thermal diodes on their older cards R9700Pro, R9600P, R9800P; but the cooling solution is terrible, looks good but works terribly bad, and poor memory for the most part. Not worth it unless you could keep the diode without the HSF, which I think you can't IIRC.

Well they gotta justify the big price tag on them. I guess it back to the hardware sensor tweak.
