GPU Monitoring for CircuitousTwo by DevilRev GPU Monitoring for CircuitousTwo by DevilRev
This is an Addition to the CircuitousTwo Skin by FlyingHyrax to monitor your GPU.
It is a modified version of the original skin that fits perfectly in the design. One skin monitors GPU and VRAM load while the other one monitors temperature and clock speed.

Not sure if it was a windows 10 update or what exactly happened but this totally stopped working. It was working great up until a few days ago

Hello, is there a pair for this but for the CPU? Showing the pie as CPU usage (percent), cpu temp on the top and clocks on the bottom? Appreciated.

tiene bug :/

Just in-case anyone is still having Win10 issues, its very simple. Download Open Hardware Monitor from Once you open OHM, proceed to installing the skin and open Rainmonitor. Select edit skin, and just change the Name of your GPU to be exactly the same as OHM... IE for me NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770. Do this for both Clock\Temp, and usage and it work. 

I think the OHM in this skin is outdated, thus it doesn't work.

Hope this helps.

so how do i use it? i dont understand
Glectonzo Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2017
does this support Duel GPU cards like the amd 295x2 or NVidia 690

Update: Months later, and still none of this works for GPU or CPU on windows 10.  This is included in troubleshooting: made sure name is correct for GPU, OHM is running on windows startup, OHM parameters also named the same, ran the powershell script listed.
Any additional help would be appreciated as this is a great overall skin I wish I could get to work.  Looks great, maybe just needs a little push in the right direction to get to work.  Cheers.

DevilRev or any other Rainmeter Guru,

The GPU load and clock speed meters had been running well on Win 10 until I installed the Win 10 Anniversary update (1607) but now they don't register when the GPU is running.  Open Hardware Monitor does register when I do something in 3D so I know that both Open Hardware Monitor and the GPU are working.  The CirtuitousTwo CPU and RAM meters work so the main Circuitous Two program survived the update.  So my guess is that the connection between Open Hardware Monitor and DevilRev's great GPU Monitor for CircuitousTwo was broken.  Any ideas on how to fix it?  Anyone actually fix it on a Windows machine recently updated with the Anniversary update?  Thanks.

Go to folder 
C:\Users\(your name)\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins 
and delete the folder "GPU Monitoring for CircuitousTwo"
then restart Rainmeter it should load everything you had before install GPU Monitoring for CircuitousTwo.

Well, I just edited the original CircuitousTwo Skin to monitor different Sensors in OHM and it seems to work for most people, sorry about your problem tho.
neehulala Featured By Owner May 29, 2016
I made sure to use my correct video card name and clock and temperature names, but everything is still showing up as 0. Im windows 7 64bit
DevilRev Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2016
If you did everything right and it doesn't work I don't really know how to help you. The problem might be the OHM Plugin or something, if you don't find the solution in any of the comments on my skins I'm sorry but I can't help you to solve the issue.

I'm on W10 64 Bit, and I alredy had instelled OHWM, so it should work well. No crashes at all, but the skin doesn't work. only shows 0%'s all the time, and puting device name in the .ini file does nothing. Even changing device name in OHWM and then getting the new name in the .ini does nothing.
DevilRev Featured By Owner May 25, 2016
The OHM Plugin searches for your Device Name first, if you put that in the skin's .ini file correctly it will look for the next thing which is "type", also defined in the .ini file. (e.g. Temperature, might be different for you but unlikely) then it looks at the "sensor", also in the .ini file (For you it might not be called as defined in the .ini and you'd have to change the sensor according to what you want to read with the skin. Check if those 3 things are named the same in the .ini file as in Open Hardware Monitor, if they are it should work.

I only get the Temp readings, and that's it. I have changed the Name's in OHM awhile ago but I am aware of how to Edit this, So I have done just that. But I get an error stating the names of the  Hardware and sensors are Wrong But There all labeled Correctly. Any help would be great I have the Plugin and I am Running windows 10

You're a hero. I'm not using this rainmeter skin, but another one that uses OHM. Ran this and rebooted as you said and everything worked like a charm. Much thanks.
It works on Windows 10 x64. I think those who are having trouble just goofed up, it's not a Windows 10 thing. Anyone playing around with Rainmeter should be able to figure it out. Just in case anyone else runs into the same trouble, make sure you first download Open Hardware Monitor. Just make it start up with Windows and run in the background minimized and it will be fine. Before you minimize it, though, copy and paste the name it uses for your Graphics Card into the correct location (Says "YOUR GPU NAME HERE") .ini file for both the temperature and usage monitors. The other names should be fine, such as "Load" and "GPU Core" and all that, but if you are 100% sure everything else is correct, then make sure those match up with what is on the window. It's easy to guess and I don't want to make long instructions, it's pretty straightforward for anyone who has done their homework for Rainmeter and pays attention to detail.
darreneckert Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2016
It will depend on the videocard as to whether the other names (the sensors) will need to be changed or not.
In my case, my card doesn't have the GPU Memory Controller sensor used in the gpu.ini, so I changed the sensors around in the two skins to suit what I had available: gpu load and clock speed on one, temp and fan speed on the other.

For me it works okay-ish's like turning off.... at first it's running okay and then all stats drop to 0% and 0°c like it dosen't work for couple of seconds and then it's working for some time and then it stops again... Open hardware monitor is running normally.
UnclaimedUsename2 Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2016
Love the idea, but with OHM running it says that "The requested sensor does not exist", despite typing in the name exactly as OHM displays it.

I got it working on Windows 10 x64 just fine after I started Open Hardware Monitor and wrote the exact name of my GPU as it's written in OHM.

Thanks! :)

When I first put it on my desktop, Rainmeter just crashed whenever I started it up.
I just deleted the Rainmeter.exe and reinstalled Rainmeter, and now it doesn't show any statistics.
DevilRev Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2015
Did you replace the "YOUR GPU NAME HERE" text in the .ini files of the two skins with your GPU name in Open Hardware Monitor and do you have Open Hardware Monitor running?
Angelman180 Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2015
Applying my GPU in the slots (NVidia GeForce GT 740) in the slots didn't help.
And when I tried to run the Open Hardware Monitor, Rainmeter crashes again.
(Forgot to mention, I'm on Windows 10 x64)
DevilRev Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2015
Yeha someone already mentioned crashing on Windows 10 x64. I only tried it with Windows 7 x64 and didn't have problems but I don't know how Windows 10 differs concerning Rainmeter skins so I can unfortunately not fix that at the moment.
kastelang Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2015
crashes on win10 x64. software like speedfan required?
DevilRev Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2015
It should work with Open Hardware Monitor only but I only tested it on Windows 7 and I don't know how Windows 10 differs concerning Rainmeter.
