that´s how it looks maximized:

Unfortunately, my experience with CAM has been less that stellar. In collides with my recording software often, it's overlays are extremely buggy and cause game crashes, and i see huge frame drops in games when CAM is open and monitoring. I stopped using it. Maybe i'll try it again soon.

no experience with recording software.

with OBS it´s stable for me.

haven´t had any issues with the software in general, nore with the overlay

To monitor CPU temps and the like I am using:

Intel Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel XTU)- Lets you monitor cpu temps and a lot of other information. You are also able to overclock, benchmark and stress test with it as well. 

 

It allows you to have a small monitor window open when you are gaming seen here:

And when you want to check out the full program you can easily open it up to reveal everything:

As far as GPU monitor goes, I am using like everyone else

 

EVGA Precision X OC:

Do note that I think this only works with GTX 1080/1070 gpus
