Yes, but for that you actually need 2 programs. Msi afterburner https://www.msi.com/page/afterburner and hwinfo https://www.hwinfo.com/ 

You can monitor a lot more things with these two. Tutorial here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kp43XzHci1E

P.S. i never tried this in FSX/P3D, but it should work. I usually do all testing with P3D in windowed mode using MSI Afterburner(for GPU)and RealTemp or CoreTemp(for CPU), and after that, there's no more need for monitoring

You can do both with Afterburner. I can see the GPU temperature in the main display at the top and CPU temp can be selected to display in the monitoring area (on a graph) at the bottom. It's very flexible - you can monitor average CPU temp or a specific core temp which is often more useful for FSX/P3D. If you also view GPU temps in the monitoring area at the bottom, you can see usage over quite a long period of time.

Nice, i said i never tried this :happy:  I know Afterburner shows CPU temps too, but i was not sure if that can be applied in game

I mainly use FSX (in full-screen mode) so can't continuously monitor Afterburner but if I Alt-Enter into windowed mode I can see the instantaneous data and also the temps over the past 10 minutes or so.
