How many of those games have you actually played :)
I’ll have to check. Steam had that weird calculation thing a while back that sometimes included Free To Play games. Then there are others where DLCs can be viewed as individual ‘games’ in their own right.

What I do know is that I have plenty that I’ve barely scratched the surface of! ☺️

Yeah if it's for work I'd use mostly linux tools with no GUI's, I just figured something existed with a dashboard for home/game users.

I'm 8700K/1080TI, the metrics from HWMonitor but displayed with a dash would be excellent. I've only got Core Temp and GPU-Z at the mo, they look like they're straight out of Windows 3.1.

Yup they work but look like arse. I found that HWMonitor gave me stupid readings sometimes, it'd say 1 core is sat at 90°C and the average is X but then you check on other monitoring and it would give a completely different output 😂

What brand is your 1080ti?

I just use Ryzen Master and Sapphire Trixx/Radeon Experience (Obviously, it's dependant on your GPU/CPU)

My brother has Intel and Nvidia and he just uses Afterburner and CoreTemp. I've not found one that does everything yet, they all seem very s**t
I have Afterburner running in the background - outputting GPU temp to my Logitech G13.

It's a dusty fecker at the minute! 😊

The Pitikapp looks like it's gonna be a go-er, thanks Daz.

With the layout of my screens, I can't see my usual/work monitors when I'm sat in the wheel seat, so having the ipad to the side is a good solution. I'm liquid cooled on both CPU and GPU so it shouldn't be troubling the upper limits by any means.

I just use RivaTunerStatisticsServer with afterburner if I want to keep an eye on something, tbh I don’t regularly monitor anything once I know it’s safe.

It’s a decent little app which can be integrated with pretty much all of the different monitoring software everyone else has mentioned.

For the temperatures you can have it change colour at set points to give a clear visual warning of anything that’s getting out of hand.

I've got a logitec g5 mouse and had it for god knows how long and for a while now the scroll wheel has been iffy. I went on youtube where some people went in it and put some paper or what ever as a wedge. I can't seem how to get inside the g5 and have a look. Anyone got any idea or is it worth looking for a replacement. I love the g5 and the camo snake skin effect on it.

Out of interest what can you possibly need that Afterburner doesn't do?

Granted, the OC'ing part takes up a hilarious amount of screen space considering that it's basically three or four slider bars, but fortunately MSI have basically left the monitoring bit alone since the days of Rivatuner so the monitoring is still fantastic.

The market for GPUs has gone absolutely mental.

You'd have to be desperate to pay the current prices.

I meant the 3070, it’ll pay for itself in 5-6 months. Not sure how profitable the 970 is, probably not unless you can plug it in somewhere the electric is free.

I’m using NiceHash, there’s better deals out there and they have a bit of a shitty history but it’s easy and I just shovel the money out to Coinbase anyway.

I now have 24Gb of RAM sat on my desk to go in the Alienware, which still hasn't hit production yet. Goddamn component shortages :censored:

Ah well, sometime in April......

I can't believe the GFX card insanity is actually getting worse, non-Ti 1080s going for £400+! What the hell! I may as well break my PC for parts than try to sell it all in one with prices like this.
