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

Is there anyway to get it to display more information on RAM? Right now it is just utilization.

To get the Mhz & Temperature running, make sure to have "Core Temp.exe" running in the background & minimized to tray. Then edit the "cpu LFT.ini" and replace the contents of "

[MeasureCPUFreq]" with:


Measure=Plugin

Plugin=CoreTemp

CoreTempType=CPUSpeed


That's how I got it working for me.

I still cant seem to get my gpu temp and usage to show up ever after changing downloading afterburner and the other plugin and editing. it still shows up a all 0 for my gpu

nice!!

btw how to add power consumption on both gpu and cpu?

I solved the problem with Afterburner and installed afterburner and CoreTemp. It works fine, but it won't show the Frequenzy of my CPU. It's always at 0Mhz (using AMD Ryzen 5 3600)

same with here its always at 0Mhz

PowerPlugin.dll seems not working

Thank you ♪

Just what i was looking for, a minimalist clean and nice meter skin for what i check the most! cpu gpu and ram, also by default the cpu bar didn't work so i edit it and i remove something like ";[MeasureCPULoad]" to "[MeasureCPULoad]" (yea just removed that ";") and i made it work... anyways tyvm for the skin!

When the Deviation/Art/Upload is Just Right (icon)

My CPU frequency is not registering. Thats the only problem I got. Everything else is great!

same here, is there a way to fix this

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.

this really helps thanks

Pls help my gpu info is not working it's all on 0, but the cpu info is working fine. I downloaded coretemp already

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.

Screenshot (122)

Thanks, I have been using older version from two years, its superb!

And then i updated now:

Letters from this one is far better and doenst cut the letters, also could put color on the bar, really looks nice ;P .

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?

yes, u need to block on rainmeter, sometimes it get buggy, but try to stuck on the rainmeter option.

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!!

Love your work, ty so much! :love:

is there a way to use gpu tweaks ii instead of msi afterburner?
