HOW TO USE:

QUICK TUTORIAL
IN-DEPTH VIDEO TUTORIAL
REFRESH THE SKIN(S) AFTER YOU FINISH WITH UPDATING IDs in HWiNFO SMV. Click over a skin with "middle mouse button" for quick refreshing the skin.
WARNING! From HWiNFO v7.0 and upper, Shared Memeory Support feature turns off after every 12h of (continuous) use and it has to be re-enabled manually again: click for more details. If you restart your machine or HWiNFO once in 12h, it will reset the time.

Hey, are you aware of the new way to grab sensor data from HWINFO 7 (doesn't require the shared memory feature, thus works 24/7, doesn't require HWINFO.dll, reads directly from registry)? If yes, are there plans to rewrite the skin accordingly? More info here: https://docs.rainmeter.net/tips/hwinfo/

Pul53dr1v3r's avatar

Yes ofc, but i don't plan to implement it for now as i earlier described why.

When does the version update for AIDA64?

Pul53dr1v3r's avatar

probably very soon. Worked on it today, and if I keep up doing so, it should be done very soon. But my mood, pace, motivation and free time are very turbulent sometimes.

For some reason after moving to Win 11 the skin no longer updates the HWInfo reliant meters, I can still see and sync data from the HWiNFO Shared Memory Viewer but whenever I refresh my RainMeter log just says it can't load HWInfo.dll. The only things I'm finding from Googling are things stating 7.0+ use a new method for HWInfo but I had 7.0+ on Win 10

Thoughts?

Pul53dr1v3r's avatar

if everything worked well on Win 10 and now on Win 11 you're having some issue, it might be system related issue. Once I install Win 11 on my Machine, I'm gonna take a look into it, but for the time being I am unable. Enjoy using Win 11!

could make one using msi afterburner

Pul53dr1v3r's avatar

unfortunatelly not. Sorry.

Awesome skin! The formatting is very well done for quick view and comprehension. It's becoming a hard choice to choose between design and data as there's some stiff competition out there. I look forward to more improvements!


I do have some questions though:


  1. Are there any plans to add core voltages for CPU and GPU?

  2. Are there any plans to add per-core temperatures for CPU?

  3. Are there any plans to add per-core clocks for CPU?

  4. Instead of manually setting maximum fan speeds, can max fan speeds be automatically determined over time (by automatically saving the highest recorded fan speed)?

Pul53dr1v3r's avatar

Thanks man!

As to the questions:

1-3 : i don't plan to add it for the time being and in the close future. A simple reason, but not the only: who could catch all the data in a moment? If human beings have as much eyes as a fly, it could be possible. Plus, with all the data, the skin would look like page of a book. There are some gadgets that include all the data is when all of them are on, the view is not much better than looking at this page.

4 - it can be done, but keep in mind that many newer cooling systems work depending on temp. of the part they are in charge of to cool. Thus, many fans don't even start to spin until a certain temp. threshold is reached and as many ppl don't use their computers for gaming, 3d modeling or anything else that draws a lot of system resources and heat components up , (some of) the fans won't spin at all during a session or always or they will spin at a low speed (for inst. 40%) that will be determined as the max fan speed in Rainmeter, and the user will be getting information that the fan usage is 100% while it is only 40%. Not good solution, isn't it?

Anyone know how to get the fan speeds to show in an asus tuf dash f15 ? I have hwinfo64 but it doesn't support fans unless there is a plugin?

If you have any issue with HWiNFO, you can report it on their forum for the best answer.

Link to the forum: click here

You should also search did anyone report the issue before.

Hope i understood you well, that HWiNFO doesn't show the fan speeds, and if so, it is a question right for Martin, author of HWiNFO as your notebook is pretty new and there could be some support issue.

How may I change the size of the weather displays? I'm on a 4K monitor and would love to increase the size so I can read it from across the room. THANKS!😀

Pul53dr1v3r's avatar

just refresh the skin manually after you have changed the size in Settings.

CrimsonBalmung's avatar

Hi there, I'm loving the skins you make. But is the textbox for temps on settings > skins 6 only accept 2 digits? I'm using fahrenheit and i can't configure the temps to over 99.

Pul53dr1v3r's avatar

Hi. Open the "SKINS 6" settings code, find [MeasureInputText] measure and change all InputLimit=2 to InputLimit=3. Save the doc and refresh Rainmeter.

CrimsonBalmung's avatar

oh you had to change the ($UserInput$,0,99) to ($UserInput$,0,200) too at least otherwise even if u can enter 3 digits, itll still cap at 99. thanks for the info

Pul53dr1v3r's avatar

nice catch, i overlooked that! You also can completely remove the Clamps. For instance, instead of [!WriteKeyValue Variables TGPU2WarnTh1 "(Clamp($UserInput$,0,99)" "#@#Variables.inc"] you can simply use [!WriteKeyValue Variables TGPU2WarnTh1 "$UserInput$" "#@#Variables.inc"]. The Clamps are there just to prevent of entering some crasy-unreal temp. values for devices. A noobsitter option.

My TOP CPU, TOP RAM and CPU RAM are not showing any data and they used to work.

My CPU is only 8 cores but 16 cores show up on the utilization monitor. How can I hide 9-16?

Pul53dr1v3r's avatar

What is the CPU model name?

IGrayfoxI's avatar

That CPU has hyper threading.

It has 8 Physical Cores with 2 Logical Cores per Physical Core, this is why 16 cores appear.

Even windows will show this.
