I went ahead and made a system temperature monitor using SpeedFan, that will measure the temperatures of your GPU, HDD, ACPI, and CPU Cores. There is Black Glass, White, and a Hud.Vision styled one, after mepu's awesome Hud.Vision skin for Rainmeter, in Horizontal and Vertical orientations.

[link]

NOTE: You must have SpeedFan installed and running on your computer (Vista users will have to run SpeedFan as an administrator to output all of the temperatures) and some configuration may be needed to get everything up and running correctly. Place in C://Program Files/Rainmeter/Skins/(Any skin of your choice)

I am working on making one that will output RivaTuner GPU clocks (shader,memory,core) -- so look for that soon.

Let me know what you think!

UPDATE: I forgot to include the SpeedFanPlugin.dll, so its now in the file. Place the SpeedFanPlugin.dll in C://Program Files/Rainmeter/Plugins

Works with both 32-Bit and 64-Bit versions of Vista.

Hey, there's a little problem : Core 0 shows Temp2 data so I correct it Wink/Razz 

Replace MesureSpeedTemp part (of the text file) by that :


[MeasureSpeedTemp0]
Measure= Plugin
Plugin= Plugins\SpeedFanPlugin.dll
SpeedFanType=TEMPERATURE
SpeedFanNumber=0

[MeasureSpeedTemp1]
Measure= Plugin
Plugin= Plugins\SpeedFanPlugin.dll
SpeedFanType=TEMPERATURE
SpeedFanNumber=1

[MeasureSpeedTemp2]
Measure= Plugin
Plugin= Plugins\SpeedFanPlugin.dll
SpeedFanType=TEMPERATURE
SpeedFanNumber=2

[MeasureSpeedTemp3]
Measure= Plugin
Plugin= Plugins\SpeedFanPlugin.dll
SpeedFanType=TEMPERATURE
SpeedFanNumber=4

[MeasureSpeedTemp4]
Measure= Plugin
Plugin= Plugins\SpeedFanPlugin.dll
SpeedFanType=TEMPERATURE
SpeedFanNumber=5


Ps : Delete spaces between "=" and "Plugin", I put them because without it, it displays : Plugin=Plugin...

What if someone has a computer with more than a dual-core? How then would they monitor a quad-core?

I've GPU Sapphire Radeon HD 5570, 512 MB, GDDR5. I installed SpeedFan 4.49.

Temperature of GPU is about 50°C, and this skin shows about 40°C.

I don't know why.

i dont think speed fan is reliable. i have the same problem with the speedfan actual program, thats why i havnt added temperature readings it to my skin. But its like a hole in the wall :(

Hi. I can't get this to work. it is my first day using RainMeter, so I'm very new to this. it displays the temperature as just 0.0. I installed and am running speedfan; I think my problem may be with the SpeedFanPlugin. 

Any help would be appreciated

I have wrong readings the GPU label is reporting the CPU tem, how can I correct this?

DO NOT replace the SpeedFanPlugin.dll that comes with Rainmeter already with the one included with this skin. Never replace any built-in Rainmeter plugin (those found in Program Files\Rainmeter\Plugins).

i tried it on my pc but the temperature are messed up

(it says 29°C GPU and 52°C GPU, but actually the temperatures are 29°C HDD and 52°C GPU)

awesome skin btw

You'll have to edit the SpeedFanNumber value. For me, out of the box, or .zip should I say, the GPU and HDD were wrong. They actually reflecting the System temp and CPU (overall). I had to change the values.

Just duplicate these sections while changing the #: I found out so here it is:
(Add them under the appropriate sections)

W=40
H=1
MeasureName=MeasureSpeedTemp5

[MeterText6]
Meter=STRING
X=220
Y=4
W=40
H=1
MeasureName=MeasureSpeedTemp6
Text="%1 °C"
FontColor=#FontColour#

[MeasureSpeedTemp5]

All the smileys are a "P"

Thanks a lot! Just needed to also change the SpeedFanNumber = "x"
For me (AMD Phenom 960T) the numbers are:
0 - system
1 - CPU
2 - AUX
3 - core 1
4 - core 2
5 - core 3
6 - HD1
7 - GPU

Not sure where my fourth core went but I see it CPU HW monitor
ohhheyy123's avatar
Can you adjust it to show six cores? ^-^
