New to sensor panels and this forum. Any help would be appreciated.


Recommended Posts

I'm new here and I have a couple of questions about sensor panels and sharing profiles. 

First off, what functionalities am I losing if I don't pay the $60 a year (which seems a little excessive for just using the sensor panel feature? but maybe that's just me). Let's be honest though, MSI afterburner is a free software that monitors clock rates/over clocks and GPU temps all on it's own. Not trying to stir things up, just pointing something out. 

Second off, is there an easier way to sort through some of the work that is being shared for either purchase, or copying (pending free distribution by the author)? This forum seems super inefficient and I've already started to work on my own panel but I don't have the graphic design skills/know-how to make it look the way I want it to. I also might have a unique panel size? (800x600 resolution 7" Rasberry Pi display)

Not trying to be excessive here, but I am just looking to see what options are available since I am interested in utilizing a sensor panel in my rig.

I’m not sure if I’m the best person to answer this, but I’ve tried many HW monitoring packages over many years and while they all give you the information you need, AIDA64 is the only one I could find that allowed me to pull out and package up the key info I was after at any particular time. Being able to easily build a custom sensor panel display that I can have running in real time (while I play games) all the time is worth the price to me. 

I change the sensor panel content depending on what I’m looking to tune. This week I was undervolting the GPU and wanted to monitor GPU power and also see if there was any impacts to CPU load at individual core level. My 7” inch panel is 800x600, powered by USB and connects as a 3rd monitor via HDMI. When I first started with AIDA64 I downloaded a few panels made by other users to try out, but now I’ve just made my own.
