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

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?

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?

Hello.

I got problems with the GPU.

My OS:

Win 7 64-bit

- I installed the program MSI Afterburner
- I downloaded afterburner.dll (64-bit) and did it in "Rainmeter\Plugins\
- I changed the .ini-files with "plugins\" and i changed the names (got them from Afterburner)

Only when the program Afterburner is running the Rainmeter shows me this here -> www.bilder-upload.eu/show.php?…

And when i close the program Afterburner it shows me this here -> www.bilder-upload.eu/show.php?…

I can't the fan speed, this is my problem.

And: It is normal that i have to run always the program Afterburner?



And i got one more problem with the CPU "temp bar.ini'  -> it shows me 0°C. What i have to change that i can see my temperature? (In Afterburner is can see the temperature)

Would be great if anyone could help me :-)

Hey, I just fixed mine to work, so I hope this helps people in the future - my CPU worked out of the box, but my GPU showed all 0s. What I had to tweak were 2 things - first, the MSIAfterburner.dll goes into your Appdata folder (%appdata% by default on Windows), inside the Rainmeter/Plugins folder. Then, you need to change your Skin via Edit Skin, and change all 3 [MeasureGPU*] functions after the [Variables]: the Plugin=MSIAfterburner.dll to Plugin=Plugins\*. That is to say, from

[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

as an example. All 3 (GPULoad, GPUTemp, and GPUFanSpeed) need to be changed for them to properly work. If you want to use any of the bars, you need to tweak them the same way.

as a heads up - DeviantArt autoreplaced anywhere that has "= P" without the space with the smiley face - please ignore that, it should still be a legible tutorial. Thanks to Classy from the /r/rainmeter Discord community for all his help!

i was looking for a sys monitoring skin having vertical bars. landed on this and seeing the goodness of this one (auto-fetching of HDD-names, click to open, good minimalist looks) i am now using this. other skin-features are very good too. thanks a lot! :)

For anyone still having trouble with their GPU readings:


-Make sure you have MSI Afterburner open and Running

-Ensure that the MSIAfterburner.dll plugin is installed (forums.guru3d.com/showthread.p…)

-Right-click the mii system GPU monitor and press "edit skin". Go to where it says "Plugin=MSIAfterburner.dll" and add "\plugins" before "MSIAfterburner.dll"

-On afterburner, look at what it calls your GPU. If you have/had an SLI or XFire setup, it might be called GPU1 or something else. Back to the edit skin window, make sure the "DataSource=GPU ___" fields have your GPU name as displayed in Afterburner. For me it was GPU1.

Thank you very much for this skin. I want to inform you that I've created my own Skin here, partially based on your skin. So some of the credits goes to you as the original creator.

In case people are still having trouble with the GPU readings, be sure to also check the "DataSource" entry in the relevant .ini files. Initially it also only showed zeroes for me, but downloading the MSIAfterburner.dll file and tweaking that .ini entry fixed it for me. Picture to show exactly what I mean: i.imgur.com/M7P5oaM.png

Lovely skin by the way, really liking this take on system information. Definitely gonna be using it.
