CHANGELOG (click here to see)

HOW TO USE (easy steps):

1) You need a FULL EDITION of AIDA64 installed for the next skins: CPU_RAM (partially), PSU, GPU and FANS. Others work independently of AIDA64. 
AIDA64 must be running (in the background) all the time!
P.S. Always check out for the latest versions of Rainmeter and AIDA64 .
2) To set up the suite to works properly, configure AIDA64 as follows:
Run the program (AIDA64) and go to:  Files --> Preferences --> External Applications.
-2a) Check the "Enable writing sensor values to Registry" box (must be enabled):
Example
-2b) check the following sensor boxes like on the picture below (you can check them all, but it will use more Hardware resources):
Example
3) Set up AIDA64 to starts up with Windows and minimize [OPTIONALLY]:
Example .

FOR AMD Radeon CARD OWNERS
AMD Radeon Card owners have to easily enter the Total memory amount of their cards manually in the Settings panel, unlike NVIDIA card owners:
Example

ABOUT PSU SKIN
To use PSU Skin, you must have a PSU with Digital Link Interface such as Corsair's RMi, HXi and AXi series. Make sure you checked the PSU related sensor boxes from step 2b.
This is where to enter the Max Power of your PSU in Settings panel:
Example

Hey, i love this skin. Only thing i would ask, is have you thought about adding a 'sticky Note' widget as part of it? this would be a huge help to someone like me. As i like things to all fit together on my desktop having a separate app running for them is a pain. Just a thought :)great work! keep it up!

Pul53dr1v3r's avatar

hi. I don't plan to add the skin for now but I will consider the request. In the meanwhile you have a great alternative that is very similar to my design and it should fit your needs: illustro Notes.

fatalillustrations's avatar

no problem at all, was just an idea :) keep up the great work!

Pul53dr1v3r's avatar

it's a pretty simple skin and I will consider adding it after v3.1 that's just around the corner for AIDA64 Edition, finally. Thanks for the support.

i look forward to the update! i wanted to create my own rainmeter skin, but just dont have the time at the minute haha! look forward to v3.1!

Hello, I have a problem with displaying GPU and GPU2 and FANS data. No information about FAN and MEM, I have your program 2.9.3 and Aida Extreme 6.50.5800, Rainmeter 4.5.4.3550. System Windows 11 and GF RTX 2070Super

Hi. Could you send me your current configuration of AIDA64 Sensor Values? So, open Registry Editor and fond this location, make a screenshot and send me: example.

Here you are, the computer is an laptop Asus ROG Strix SCAR 17 [G732LWS-HG053]

Ok, I took a look at the sensors you provided and what I see is that there are some sensors we need that have value "0" while some others are missing, most likely because mobile components always have less sensors/features in general. I also have to ask you did you test this on Win10? Win11 is pretty new and it would be a wonder it there aren't many seroius and less serious bugs. I'd really like if you're able to test it on the same machine with Win10. If the sensor that now gives zeros would give a positive value, it would mean that there's a proble either with Windows 11 or with AIDA64 support on that OS.


Apart from that, you have 2 temperature sensors. One that monitors GPU Diode (he shows 0 now) and a new GPU Hotspot sensor that works. As the GPU skin is not configured to monitor GPU Hotspot temp. that shows a positive value (works), lets configure it for it. So, open the code, find [GPUTempNvidia] measure and its RegValue option. Change it from Value.TGPU1DIO to Value.TGPU1HOT (more about GPU Hotspot temp. here). Save the changes and refresh the skin. This way you can change any sensor, just be sure what you are doing. More info about the sensors here.


Try to restart your machine and check are the GPU related still showing zeros (sensors with "GPU" in its name). If yes, you should report it to AIDA64 forum. I would ask does your GPU have FAN sensor, GPU Utilisation sensor, GPU memory usage sensor... There is sensor that shows GPU2 clock (Value.SGPU2CLK) but not the same sensor GPU #1.


I also suggest you to test your luck with HWiNFO Edition of the gadgets and see what the sensors it shows. When i update this edition to v3.1, it will also have all known bugs fixed and all the sensor values will be in one file, apart from the codes so it's gonna be easier to find them and edit.

Gosh, thank you very much for such extensive help. I will have to check everything you wrote calmly. As for the W10, I will try to install it on an additional disk and see what the difference will be. Thanks again for the suggestions.

I forgot to say that is preferable to always use the latest drivers downloaded from manufacturer's site. For NVIDIA GPU's go here and carefully choose your GPU model, exact OS etc.

The drivers are usually up-to-date, I have installed a clean WIN10 and I also have no data for RPM CPU, MEM and FAN for the GPU. Only changing DIO to HOT showed current temp. ASUS original "Armory Create" program shows RPM, TEMP. Well, maybe this laptop model is like that :)

HWiNFO shows even fewer options.

Thank you for your help.

Pul53dr1v3r's avatar

if AIDA or HWiNFO don't show the data, you can't do nothing else to get the sensor value. Rainmeter just "grabs" the data from the Registry/plug-in and that's all. But that zeros for some sensors are strange. Like they exist but someting (like driver) prevents or doesn't correctly show their data. God knows. All in all, I can't remember there is a notebook that has all the GPU sensors like a desktop variant. Those devices have to be as smaller as possible, to take less power etc. and thus they spare.

first excellent job.

My internet speed is different, for example if the download speed in the task manager is 54mbps, in the skin it shows 5.8 MB/s. how do i adjust it?

How do I know my PC supports PSU readings? i have an ASUS b450 tuf pro / gamemax 650 .


Thanks for the great job.

Pul53dr1v3r's avatar

Firstly, 8 mbps = 1 MB/s. If you think there is a net speed accuracy issue, you should report it rather to the rainmeter forum than here, but make sure you're right. Windows task manager had some issues with older Win 10 versions. Just bear it in mind. Test it with sth else and don't expect the speed will be the same as the measure times aren't the same in many cases.


You have to have a PSU with Digital Link interface that transfers data from PSU to MB. I explained it in the Video Tutorial that you have in description.

Great skin! Fully loaded too!

Is AIDA64 version still in dev, or are you concentrating solely on HWINFO now? I noticed a version update for HWINFO, but not this version to 3.0

Pul53dr1v3r's avatar

yes, it is, but i still haven'd found a day or two to do finish it. Btw. AIDA64 version is my favorite, but i simply started the update on HWiNFO Edition as i had it on my desktop atm and that's the only reason.

@Pul53dr1v3r really love your skin and I'm using is since 3 years now. Can't imagine my desktop without it :-)

I'm using Win11 beta and everything worked fine with my Nvidia GTX 1070, yesterday I upgraded to RTX 3060TI but now I don't get GPU temperature working in your skins. I installed latest beta versions of Rainmeter and Aida64 and I checked the settings (Aida64 logging and registry values). See attached screenshot: https://imgur.com/JRT0OAl

GPU memory, fan speed and GPU load are working fine, just temperature is missing.

Did I overlooked something? Any advise from you? Thank you in advance and all the best!

Hi. I am glad u like it. To fix the issue follow these steps:

1) open the GPU skin code, 2) find [GPUTempNvidia] measure, 3) change its RegValue from RegValue=Value.TGPU1DIO to RegValue=Value.TGPU1.

Save the changes, refresh the skin or Rainmeter.

That worked for me! Thanks

Came back here just for this :)sweet fix. thank you. love the skins. I just got aida64 and first skin I try is yours and I fell in love with it. I have a 49" monitor so resizing is a feature I've been after for a long time.

Hi! Wow... spot on solution! Works fine again. :woohoo: Thanks a bunch! Really appreciate it!!!:wave:
