Default GPU core temp (where to get it?)

Can anyone point me to the origin/source/command/file/unameit from where nvidia-settings gets the core temp for the GPU?

sysctl doesn't report a thing about it (or at least I was dumb enough not to see it) but nvidia-setting does indeed report it .. so that value _is_ there somewhere ...

I'd like to perl something to get every temp reading on my system, but the GPU core temp is the only thing that I don't know where to get from

For the record:
[gonzalo@inferna ~]% sysctl -a | grep nvidia

and btw ... if anyone knows what values can be tweaked to get an even better performance .. I would greatly appreciate the info
