  1. Is there any program that lets you check the temperature for a 9800PRO?

    Also is there a way to get an overclocking program just like what is bundled with the XT?

    Not temp, and don't OC.

    I searched for something that could give me the temp of my 9800 Pro and came up empty. Essentially, with no temp probe on the card itself, no program can tell you how hot it is running (I've heard estimates around 70'C though. I'd estimate about 20'C hotter than your CPU).

    There are programs that will overclock it, but I highly advise stearing clear of them unless you've added an aftermarket GPU cooler to your card.

    One such OC utility, "PowerStrip", is the most popular.
