G19 update frequency - Not the usual question

This isn't the usual "How do I change the update frequency?" question I've seen asked countless times rather it's an issue with the update frequency not working correctly.

 

I've used the Aida64 for months in conjunction with my Logitech G19 and from day one I set the update frequency to 1 second and all has been well. Until this week.

 

On Monday I replaced my old MB/CPU/RAM for an MSI Z87 GD-65, 4670K and RAM but ever since regardless of what I set the update frequency to Aida64 seems to have a mind of it's own. It seems to either update every 2 or 3 seconds even though it's set to update every 1 second and worked fine on the previous motherboard/chipset. 

 

Has anyone experienced a similar issue on the Z87 chipset? I appreciate it's not the biggest problem in the world but if I could get it updating as before then that would be great.

 

Thanks,

 

Griff

Maybe it's because the sensor polling requires cca. 2 seconds to complete on your current system.  Which is quite unusual, and would usually mean there's a particular sensor component in your system that can provide sensor readings to AIDA64 very slowly.  It would be necessary to know more about your system, and the difference to the previous system:

 

1) Do you have any RAID arrays defined?  Did you have before?

 

2) Do you have any external storage devices (either USB, eSATA or FireWire) or special sensor devices (via USB) connected?   Did you have before?  Have you tried to disconnect them?

 

3) What Windows version do you have installed?  What was on your previous system?

 

4) What video card(s) do you have?  Do you have the same than before?

 

 

Thanks,

1, No RAID arrays on old or new system.

 

2, I've got a NAS on my network but that's been there a long time and didn't affect the update frequency on the old motherboard. Nothing else attached to the PC other than a mouse and keyboard via USB. 

 

3, Windows 8. Same as the old motherboard.

 

4, MSI 7970 GHz OC BE. Same as the old motherboard.

 

FWIW -

 

Old system

 

MSI P55 GD80, i5 750, mixture of Geil and Corsair ram, Samsung 840 Pro SSD, MSI 7970 GHz OC BE, Corsair HX750

 

New system

 

MSI Z87A GD65 Gaming, i5 4670K, 16GB Patriot Viper, Samsung 840 Pro SSD, MSI 7970 GHz OC BE, Corsair HX750

Thank you for your reply, and I'm sorry for the delays.  It took us a few days to implement a profiling feature in the hardware monitoring module of AIDA64.  We're hoping that by using the profiling output, we can identify the particular part of that module that causes the slowness in sensors measurement on your system.  Once the profiling feature is finalized, we'll release a new AIDA64 beta update, and I'll post a download link into this topic with instructions on how to issue the Sensor Profiling dump.  It should take no more than 2-3 days to get there.

Please upgrade to the latest beta version of AIDA64 Extreme available at:

 

http://www.aida64.com/downloads/aida64extremebuild2631xjbvz0sn9czip

 

After upgrading to this new version, make sure to restart Windows to finalize the upgrade.

 

You can issue the Sensor Profiling dump by right-clicking on the bottom status bar of AIDA64 main window --> Sensor Debug --> Sensor Profiling Dump.  Copy-paste the full results into this topic.

 

Please note that besides the profiling feature, this new AIDA64 beta also implements an optimized rendering solution for G19, which should lead to lower CPU utilization when the LCD feature is enabled in AIDA64.  It may help about your system, but maybe there are other issues that the Sensor Profiling could reveal.

 

Thanks,

Fiery

does this optimised renderer benefit the g15/g510?

 

No, it only affects the G19.  The G15/G510 have a monochrome LCD with a lower resolution, so rendering is much less of an issue there, and much less CPU time is spent on rendering, fortunately.
