  1. Yep, that seems to have done the trick! As soon as I disable that option (even before restarting Aida), the CPU usage goes way down. It now hovers at <1% and very occasionally peaks at ~1.5%. When I rerun the Sensor Profiling Dump, GPUSensorInfo is still high, but LM78 is now about 50 times lower (0.148 instead of 7.9). My sensor panel did have CPU Opt RPM on it, which has now stopped working as you said (it's no big deal). I can't see any other changes in the sensor panel. Can I assume that, apart from CPU Opt RPM, disabling EC support will have negligible impact for me in AIDA64? Also, is this high EC latency something that I should be concerned about? Is it likely to impact my general PC performance? Is it a sign of a faulty motherboard?

  4. Open a sensor panel with a good number of items in it (eg. 5 or more) click on an item near the top click "move down" at least a few times, to move the item down the list now shift-click on an above item Shift-click of course selects consecutive items. But you'll see that Aida selects consecutive items from the original position of your selected item (starting near the top, downwards) instead of its actual position (its new position, upwards).
  5. Hi, I've used Aida64 for the Sensor Panel for many years. But after upgrading my PC*, I've noticed that Aida64 uses a relatively high amount of CPU (often hovering around 5%, sometimes hitting 10+%. Perhaps it always used so much but I've only noticed now. Anyway, the CPU usage seems unrelated to what's actually on the sensor panel: it behaves the same whether it has 0 items on it or 100. Though it does improve if I set transparency to 0%. And it does dip below 1% if the sensor panel is turned off completely by unchecking "show sensor panel" (as opposed to just hidden by setting all items to "hide"). It also seems to be pretty much unaffected by whether the polling rate is 100ms or 2000ms. So I have 2 questions: 1. Are there certain settings I can change in Aida64 that would reduce CPU usage? I only use the sensor panel and logitech g510s lcd panel (I don't even use the main aida64 window). So I'd be happy to disable anything that doesn't relate to those. Could I disable something in the stability section perhaps? 2. Is the 5-10% cpu usage actually a problem if I don't max out my CPU to 100%? I'm a photoshop power-user, which frequently works my CPU and RAM hard, but it usually only maxes out one or two cores (my CPU has 8 physical cores). My understanding is that, in theory at least, if Photoshop maxes out, say, cores 1 and 2, then the CPU will just shift Aida64's workload to core 3, and Photoshop's performance would remain unharmed. Is this how it works in reality? Thanks * Asus Prime z390-a; core i7-9700k; 64gb ram; two gtx980ti in SLI; two m.2 drives; six sata drives
  6. The Monitor Refresh Rate sensor doesn't seem to work properly, at least in my case. My monitor (ASUS ROGswift PG287Q) has a physical button that switches between 60Hz/120Hz/144Hz. The button works without a hitch. I can see the refresh rate changing with my naked eye (noticeable change in smoothness) and by looking at a game's framerate while vsync is on (the FPS will max out at 60fps/120fps/144fps depending on refresh rate). The monitor itself also pops up a HUD that confirms the changed Hz value. But the Aida64 sensor doesn't pick up this change. It seems the problem may be at least partly to do with Windows' Display Adapter Properties (DAP), as Aida64 appears to only read the setting that is in DAP (shown below). If I change the Hz here, then Aida does update correctly (it also updates correctly if I change the Hz via the nvidia control panel). However, if I subsequently press the button on my monitor to change refresh rate, then the monitor does switch to the new refresh rate, but neither DAP or Aida are updated to reflect this new refresh rate. Is there any way to make Aida's Vertical Refresh Rate setting more accurate, to reflect the actual refresh rate (and not just what Windows thinks it is)? Thanks

    oh, ok. I assumed you could do it since you do it with the gadget. Btw, why are the gadget and sensor panel separate things? Is the gadget architecture too limited to do what the sensor panel can do? Anyway, Aero Peek would be nice, since it's exactly the sort of thing that Aero Peek was designed for, but I can live without it. I'm happy enough to be able to see it with "show desktop"

    ah, dammit, I just found a bug. The new no-minimise functionality doesn't work on "Aero Peek" (hovering over the "show desktop" corner button without clicking it) in Windows 7. This is actually the most important situation for the sensor panel to remain visible in my opinion, because it would let you quickly see your stats and then get immediately back to work Looks like I spent my $40 too soon :/

    Thanks. I've just bought an upgrade, and the no-minimise functionality works as intended. I wish this program wasn't so expensive, but it's the best on the market, so it's hard to say no...

    Could someone please tell me if this has this been fixed yet? My license period expired, so I no longer have updates. I'm deciding whether to renew, as this is the main feature I'm interested in at the moment.

    Thanks for responding/considering my suggestions. (8) Seems like a lost opportunity to me. I'd love to have aida as my one-stop-shop for all hardware monitoring and tweaking. I'd prefer not to have to run multiple utilities at once. Also, the UI of SpeedFan (the current best program for controlling fans) is very complicated and unintuitive. I'm sure you could implement a better one, and I'd expect you to get more customers if you did, as many of us use Speedfan only because there's no alternative. Though I guess you know what's best for your roadmap. (9) Are you sure? I find that settings only save for the current session only unless I manually quit aida. I've noticed a few times when I've made changes, they've been applied....but then later I've restarted Windows (without manually closing aida), and upon re-entering Windows, the changes I had made had been lost. If I manually close aida after making changes, they seem to be saved permanently. Anyway, I have a few more suggestions: (11) Monitor HDD activity Sometimes I can hear one of my hard drives spinning loudly, but I have no idea why, or which one it is. I wish I could just look at my aida sensor panel and see straight away which one it is (and perhaps whether it's reading or writing) (12) Stop the sensor panel disappearing when I do "Show Desktop". This is probably my greatest annoyance with aida. When my monitors are full of open windows, I'd like to be able to click the Windows "Show desktop" button to quickly check something on the Sensor Panel. But currently, the Sensor Panel disappears along with all the other windows. A "keep visible on Show Desktop" checkbox would be great. I know the "always on top" feature exists, but I definitely don't want the SP to be always on top (just always visible when looking at the desktop) (13) Allow drag-drop of items on the sensor panel manager. I currently have about 80 items on my SP. Keeping organised by arranging them is very time-consuming, because the "move up/down" buttons only move them one position at a time. I'd like to be able to just drag them into any position on the list I want. (14) Be able to show refresh rates for multiple monitors. I have 2 monitors, with different refresh rates that sometimes change independently of each other. Aida's current "Refresh Rate" sensor isn't very helpful, because it only works for one monitor (and it's not immediately apparent which one). (15) Allow monitoring of estimated Power Draw (in Watts) of GPUs, and not just their TDP% Thanks again.

    Hi, first of all I want to say how impressed I am with aida64. I've used it since about 2009 to display sensor stats on my logitech keyboard LCD. I've recently started using it for more, such as sensor panels on both my PCs and stability tests, and I'm loving it. I keep discovering more features, and the more I discover about the program, the more impressed I am. Great work. Anyway, even good things can be improved, and I have some suggestions. allow hard drives with A: or B: letters to be monitored eg. my backup hard drive was called B: (B for Backup), but unfortunately Aida didn't recognise it until I renamed to a different letter allow moving of sensor elements even when sensor manager is open allow user to customise value types: eg. let me choose whether to display 1546 Mhz, 1.546 Ghz, 1.55 Ghz or 1.5 Ghz allow cpu, chassis etc. fans to be displayed not just as rpm, but also as a percentage value (ie. Full speed = 100%). Make user input min and max if necessary allow graphs to be capped, so that line doesn't go off the chart. Eg. My Fraps graph makes most sense when capped at 120hz. But when I play an older game with vsync off, the fps can be much higher, and the line shoots off the graph and messes up the rest of the sensor panel. let sensor panel manager window remember its last location Allow values to have multiple colour states, just like bars do at the moment: eg. CPU temparature: 30ËšC or 55ËšC or 96ËšC Allow fan speeds to be controlled. Perhaps introduce a new "Item Type" called Slider or Button or Interactive Save settings when closing preferences or Sensor Panel manager, not just when closing aida64. Allow each item on sensor panel to have its own polling interval setting that overrides the generic ones. Eg. I'd like to poll Fraps framerate every 0.1 seconds, GPU usage every 1 second, "used RAM" every 5 seconds, motherboard temperature every 30 seconds, and "used HDD space" every 360 seconds. Everything else can be left at the defaults that I've specified in preferences.
