What should I get?

Hey PCPP

I've been thinking of software for monitoring my PC stats/temps/frames and I keep running into the issue of, one only does gpu or cpu. I've been looking at CAM software and I've heard some horror stories. I also don't have anything nzxt in my computer so I'm not sure if I should get it or not. Can anyone educate me a bit on this because I'd like to know more and keep track of my pc stats while streaming/gaming and not worry about whether or not I need to lower settings or change something.

(also side note) can I keep track of stats and sync my asus MB/GPU rgb with hue if I get Hue+ ?

HWinfo, CPU-z and MSI afterburner.

Yep - MSI Afterburner is great for monitoring stats during gaming/streaming. Make sure you install RivaTuner with it (it's bundled, and should be checked automatically) as you'll need that to display the stats in-game. Takes a few seconds to configure the way you want it, then you're good to go. Plenty of YT vids on the process.

I love HWinfo as well. Amazing little program.
