Programmer Creates 12VHPWR ‘Safety Mechanism’ for RTX 4090

A Reddit user created a custom monitoring program to monitor the connector temperature of 12VHPWR-equipped graphics cards like the RTX 4090 (one of the Best GPUs) that have earned a reputation for melting. The program utilizes a 10k sensor that measures the temperature of the connector to warn the user or protect the graphics card from potential damage.

According to the user, who goes by u/mamolengo, the only item you must buy is the sensor for his program to work. You can get them for as little as $8 to $10 on Amazon, and most motherboards have a header to support them. In the Reddit user’s case, he plugged his into his Corsair iCUE commander pro.
