Superb work; nice looks and feature rich! But I've got a question about the Fans skin. They all keep showing 0 rpm on my system and I don't know why. All the other skins seems to work fine. Is this a known issue?

Memory Viewer
Fans.ini
Skin

Versions

HWiNFO64: 6.12-3930

Rainmeter: 4.3.1.3321 (64-bit)

Rainformer: 2.4

Hi and thanks for reporting on the issue.  The skin has been rarely used, even by me since i have only 1 additional Fan that can be monitored apart from CPU's and GPU's, so you're the first to report it. Seems i forgot to test the skin after updating it. If i did it, i'd notice the mistake. Sorry. Ashamed 
The only thinf you have to do is too add include=#@#HWiNFO.inc into the [Variables] section of the skin.
Thanks to the dA's text formatting, it's always "pleasure" to post codes. 
Just in case, here is an alternative of the code
That's it.

Haha, it's all good. :petting: And you're right, that does fix it. Got 7 fans and 1 pump over here, so it useful for me. Thanks for the quick reply!

Hi. I noticed the mistake i made after i published the new version of the suite. There is only a skin update issue where i mistakenly set Update=-1 instead of Update=3600 (or any other 1000+). So, just open the skin and replace the Update with any rate you want (1000 = 1 second). For that skin it is not so necessary to have quick update rate.

Hi - I followed your tutorial. It was fast going so did a lot of pausing.
When I added the CPU-RAM.ini variant the skin shows the 12 logical processors instead of the actual 6 core processors. I was just going to comment out all the meters after CPU 6 but realized that was not correct solution.
Perhaps I didn't disable the sensor status correctly but followed the tutorial as close as possible.
Can you help me figure out the correct solution? It should be displaying the actual core processors not the logical ones --- correct?

Hi and thx. Yes, it's going pretty fast but you can change the playback speed on yt as well. 
As to the CPU skin, it's only possible to show all, physical and logical cores. None of the programs (such as HWiNFO, AIDA64 or Rainmeter with its built-in measures) can provide that data. But if you wish to disable the logical cores, you can do it in your BIOS. Then you will see only the 6 physical cores, but the CPU performance will drop significantly.

Just to notify you that a new version of the suite is around the corner.

Tks for the info on the CPU skin's capability. No wonder that I could not find a measure to select core vs. logical. You saved me some time.
No, I don't think disabling the logical processors on the skin are the right choice. The 6 core processors are distributed across the 12 logical ones and thus will not be accurate.
And I would never actually go into the operation system's management to disable the logical processors. As you said, it would highly impact performance and probably screw up something else in the long run.
Thank you again for putting all the work into creating these skins. Very useful to realize key elements of my computer across several elements.
Take care now.

I am excited to try out your layout. The detail is fantastic.
And your follow-up to questions and issues is spot-on. Glad that you care of your users.

Not sure what's going on but when i try to edit settings (PSU Power or BG opacity for example) and hit enter it just goes back to the default setting no matter what.

Did you try to reinstall Rainmeter with the newest version? I'd also run Rainmeter as an admin. 
What's your Windows version?

Hi,

Just a small suggestion for the network meter.:

If you can manage to flip the network meter graph for the download horizontally that would make it look like upload goes up and download would go down in the graph.

Just an aesthetic thing :)

Just one question for your opinion. Do you think it's necessary to have the option with this design:  pic ?

Hi, thank you for this skin! I have one question, how can I add additional motherboard fans? I have 2 additional fan coolers I'd like to monitor.

Hi. Once i made a Fans skin for AIDA64. If you don't have AIDA in order to use this skin, i'd make you HWiNFO version for the two fans? It's the fastest solution for now.
quiklunder's avatar

Thanks for the answer! That's exactly what I'm looking for. Thank you

Hey, could you make a HWiNFO version out of your fan monitor and/or possibly include it with rainformer? <3

Also: edith reminded me to ask how to change the language of the days.

As to the language of the days, take a look at this link: FormatLocale

Svaka čast buraz. Ne nađoh bolje za sada.

Jedna molba ako može, da i ovo bude za Aidu.

Pul53dr1v3r's avatar
Pul53dr1v3rHobbyist General Artist
Bice svakako i za AIDU ali ne ova verzija, vec naredna poboljsana koju sam polovicno zavrsio do sad. Uvodim potpuno relativno pozicioniranje sadrzaja na skinovima, za razliku od fiksnog koje je do sad bilo, tako da ce se mnogo lakse moci dodati bilo sta na bilo kom mestu u skinu, a isto tako i ukloniti...
 promo
Inace, i ja preferiram AIDU od pocetka, ali otkad me nagovorise za HWiNFO verziju, na njoj prvo radim apdejte pa onda na Aidi, no cim ova bude gotova brzo cu i za Aidu uraditi, ako Bog da.
Konstruktivne kritike i sugestije su takodje uvek dobrodosle ako imas koju.
