You will get a lot of answers on this forum for that question, lol. Probably all will be correct.
When I'm gaming on the desktop I have gotten in the habit of putting up my Radeon software (my cards are R9 Fury cards) and keeping an eye on power consumption and card temps. I also monitor system temps with AI Suite. HWinfo. HWmonitor. AIDA64. Speedfan. Also Windows has built in basic monitoring software in the Task Manager.
I wrote that poorly. I don't use all of those software packages to monitor. Just the first two I mentioned, typically. The others I just listed to give you a place to start. 🙂

HWiNFO64 is pretty comprehensive and doesn't have unidentified or ghost sensors...It's my go-to at the moment
