It doesn't seem like it works well with ATI cards. All I can get out of it is core and memory clockspeed monitoring.

Try SpeedFan 4.50 (Last compatible version with win9x). If the GPU has a tempmonitor it will pick it up.

Some manufacturers provided utilities for their cards as well.

I have been testing both radeon 9700 pro and radeon x800 pro and it would be nice to know how well their stock coolers are still doing their job.

I don't think either of those cards have built-in sensor, i might be wrong though. Quick google on it does not support that they have sensors, at least not on the 9700 Pro.

X800 - yes, 9700 - no.

Leave the side panel off and use the ole finger test. If the heatasink burns your finger while it isnt under heavy load, ya usually got a problem.

If heat is not transferring well to the heatsink for some reason, the finger test might not be good enough :P
