    Yes they are. hddtemp is required for the hdd temp and if you have an Nvidia card with the drivers installed, it’ll show that too. It can show everything if you have google help you. I don’t know of any RAM that has a temp sensor in it but CPU and GPU were running already without any extra work on my part.

    You can also install libsensors to get all the voltages, fan speeds, and temps of a few chips on your board. After installing, run libsensors from terminal to see what they correspond to. You may have to restart your system before they will work in the sensor applet.
