this is my second system skin inspired from poiru's piilous preview

it is a set of 8 sub skins which display the following system parameters-

1. CPU - load, frequency & temperature with bar ver.
on clicking it opens coretemp

2. GPU- load, temperature & fan speed with bar ver.
on clicking it opens the afterburner

3. RAM- percent used, swap & uptime
on clicking it opens the task manager

4. Network - download speed, uplaod speed & IP add.
on clicking it opens the network sharing center

5. Time - time , date & week day
on clicking it opens the date & time setting window

6. 3 HDDs- used space, toatal space & percent used with bar ver.
on clicking it opens the respective drives

7. Todo notes

8. Recycle Bin with black and white ver.- also shows the no. of items in the bin
right click empties the bin

9. Power with black & white ver. with options of sleep,shutdown & restart


middle click to close a skin


it requires coretemp & msi afterburner which you can download here-

P.S. I SUGGEST TO USE THIS SKIN SIMILAR TO THE WAY IN SCREENSHOT. SO WHEN YOU HAVE AERO ENABLED YOU CAN STILL SEE THE SYSTEM PARAMETERS ON THE TOP [link]

recycle bin icons are from ecqlipse 2 by chrfb

as always comments are welcome

SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO IMPROVE THE SKIN OR ANY BUGS THAT YOU DISCOVER ARE ALSO WELCOME

For those of you having trouble with the GPU not reading correctly or not reading at all, I'm moving a very helpful older comment from 2017, to the top.

Do these steps in order.

1 Download and install Core Temp (link in the description above)

2 Download and install MSI Afterburner (link in the description above)

3 You'll have to download an additional file ( MSIAfterburner.dll) for afterburner to talk to rainmeter. You can get it from this link ( https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/rainmeter-plugin-for-msi-afterburner.319558/ )

4 Once downloaded move that file to C:\Program Files\Rainmeter\Plugins

5 Then you'll need to make an edit to the gpu LTF.ini file. I found mine in C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\mii system skin 2\GPU

Open the file in a text editor and change:

[MeasureGPULoad]

Measure=Plugin

Plugin=MSIAfterburner.dll

DataSource=GPU usage

MaxValue=100

MinValue=0

 to

[MeasureGPULoad]

Measure=Plugin

Plugin=Plugins\MSIAfterburner.dll

DataSource=GPU usage

MaxValue=100

MinValue=0

It's a lot easier than it looks.

Hope this helps!

I know others have mentioned this fix before but I thought a refresh was due.

Thanks to Rhys13th for the path fix.

Same here. Have both coretemp and MSI afterburner installed and the GPU shows a solid 0 at all times.

Hi, it would be nice if you could add these as variants as well. I'd love to see my CPU and GPU wattages with a min/max on the variant as well. Would that be possible? this is taken from Afterburner.

How do I get the CPU and GPU to display custom names? Is that still possible with the auto-detect code in place?

This is awesome! I'm having trouble getting any of the items to display on other monitors. For example, I want to display a couple on my second monitor, so I drop down the "Display Monitor" menu and select the second one, but nothing happens and I can't drag it over. Any ideas?

Great, great job!! Thank you!!

One question. How did you get both the HDD bar and the HDD to stay on together. Seems if I turn one on, the other turns off. I have an idea of how to fix it but would like to know how the author did it.

Thanks again!!

The download link appears to be dead, can you reupload?
abu46's avatar
Hi, works fine for me. Can you try again?
BrokenPineapples's avatar
Scratch my previous question, I figured it out. The only thing I can't get to show is the fanspeed % for both GPU's... They show as 0% Any suggestions?
BrokenPineapples's avatar
Great Skin! I have been using it for an age now :)
Does it support GPU in SLI?
Is there a way to edit the note files to add GPU 1/ GPU 2 and include info?

Thanks :)

Is there a way to show a USB as a hard drive? For some reason it doesn't work when I assign the drive (Eg USB E:, when I edit the skin and assign the drive letter E: to the skin it refuses to show any information on the drive). Could you help me out with why this doesn't work?

I'm having a problem with the network module. It is only showing 4 digits so when the download speed gets over 1000.0 K it cuts the one. I changed to only 1 decimal and it works for now but i would prefer to change it to Mb or be able to display the whole number. Is there a way to do that?

Hey, I was wondering if I can use EVGA's Precision X to grab values from instead of afterburner. I switched to a EVGA card and would like to use the software it came with it. Only problem is I can't find the .dll files for the EVGA tool. Any help?
