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

Great skin, always has been... but seems with 3.2 the GPUs don't register data, and no temp. I have the skin on three machines (DELL), seems to work on my laptops but not on my desktop. Values seem mapped with the registry, I get other data and AIDA64 has the values but the skin is not absorbing them.


Any ideas?

RE: Solved, kinda. I tried just copying the entire folder structure of my laptop to the desktop and the GPU and temps came back. :-)

thanks man! looks very clean

What a satisfying feeling to have Rainformer updated to latest version and seeing all my questions / small issues answered on spot within the latest comments.... 😍

Thank you again Pul53dr1v3r for your awesome work! Using your skin now several years and I cannot live without it 😋

Been enjoying this skin for over a year now but for some reason my weather portion hasn't been working. It's just coming back null.

Hello, had an issue with weather so I updated then noticed I needed to replace the APIKey.. so now weather works. BUT with the new version of Rainformer I can't get the GPU to show temperature and I also can't change FAN3 readings to my Fan6 readings like I have been for the past versions. Any idea why GPU temp won't show?

Hi. Now the sensor name are in a separate file. To edit it, just opet the Settings, General tab and click "Edit AIDA64 Sensor Names" button:

Great and thanks! I understand how you have it set up now and was able to change both fans and gpu temp.

I updated from 2.9.3 to 3.2 Rainformer, and I have tried clicking the "Edit AIDA sensor names" link in the settings menu, andn it changes color when I mouseover, but it does not open anything. I am using Windows 11, Rainformer 3.2 for AIDA64, and the latest build of AIDA64 Extreme.

On a side note, I found that while using OneDrive for system backup, my Documents folder has been moved to the OneDrive folder, which may help some people using OneDrive, and looking to update their Weather APIkey.

Pul53dr1v3r's avatar

As I am not using Win 11, there isn't possiblity for me to test it on the OS. Had it been worked well on older OSs if u used any?

SeanMalahy's avatar

Windows 11 no longer uses user/username/documents...

Now it uses user/username/onedrive/documents...

This is the same issue I ran into fixing the APIkey for the weather skin.

Pul53dr1v3r's avatar

Note for the WEATHER skin: Go to C:\Users\User\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\RainformerAIDA64\@Resources, find Variables.inc document, open it, search for "APIKey" variable and replace its value to 21d8a80b3d6b444998a80b3d6b1449d3 , save the changes, then refresh the skin or Rainmeter.

Thanks for the help. With how often weather.com changes their APIkeys, are there any plans to update the Rainformer like this person did? Not sure if their method or some other one is possible to get weather.com apikey from their source page automatically. Anyways, thanks for what you do on the skin.

I vote for a place in the settings menu to change the APIkey.

I am having a issue with GPU temp not showing. It was working when I had my 3070, I replaced it with a 3080 and the temp reading doesn't show, but the useage,memory,core clock etc does.


To get my 3070 to show the temp, I had to change "RegValue=Value.TGPU1DIO to RegValue=Value.TGPU1" but my 3080 it doesn't work either way. I also did a reinstall of the skin and it didn't work.


Aida64 GPU sensors are reading correctly, just not on the skin.

Rainmeter + Aida are up to date

Pul53dr1v3r's avatar

Did you take a look at registry editor in search for active GPU temp sensor name? I'd like you send it in chat or here. Also, you dont have to reinstall the skins, just to restart either Rainmeter or AIDA or your machine.

is that what I am looking for? I see they say 0s

Pul53dr1v3r's avatar

No. GPU temperature sensors start with prefix "TGPU..." and you need one of them as there could be many depending on a GPU model. Make sure you have enabled the GPU temp sensors in AIDA settings => External application.


Here are all the possible GPU temp. related sensor names with short description what every of them stands for: link


If you are curious, you can find all the possible sensor names on this location in your AIDA: link

Ah thats what it was! When I checked the external applications in Aida64, the GPU options were unchecked somehow. Working perfect now.

Thanks again and Happy New Year

Pul53dr1v3r's avatar

Glad to hear that. Always try to enable only necessary and disable redundant/unused sensors to save system performance as it takes a certain percent of them if all the sensors are on.


Happy New Year to you too!

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!
