Buying AIDA64 Extreme - Feature question


Recommended Posts

Hello there,


actually I'm considering to buy aida64 Extreme Edition, but I'm unsure about if the Features I need are really covered, so a short info would be really great.


I intend to use aida64 just to Export sensor readings to Aquaero 6 Aquasuite to manage my custom watercooled System.

In the Trial Version, only certain values are published to the Aquasuite (WMI Share is enabled). But what I really Need to know is if every value / sensor reading aida64 is cabaple to show in the main application is also published to 3. Party apps?


Thanks in advance!

AIDA64 (regardless of whether you're running the trial version or the unlocked licensed version) can publish those values that are listed on the External Applications page in the Preferences.  Please note that the list there is only applicable to the current underlying system you're using.  So if you take AIDA64 to another computer, running another operating system, the list of values may be longer or shorter, depending on the number of sensor items that particular computer supports.

Hi Fiery, thanks for the very fast answer. I'm just trying around with the Trial on the other Screen, but I find some strange things in the publication to the external application (Aquasuite). Which leads me to some more questions, if you don't mind:


1. For example CPU  core 2 / 4 temperature readings. The sensor readings are there and displayed in the main application under sensors and they are shown and chosen to share in the External Applications page in the Preferences, but if I want to add them in the Aquasuite there's only CPU Diode and Core 1 and 3 temp, the other 2 readings are missing. Same is with GPU1 Diode and GPU2 Diode readings, what could that be? 


2. Further I miss some real important readings for me, which are displayed correctly in the most other sensor reading applications I've tested so far (hwinfo, openhardwaremonitor) one of those in example is the reading from the CPU fan Controller it's Speed % (PWM) setting.


3. Is there the possibility to add Units to the actual readings. For example, while the "degree Celsius" unit is correctly given with the sensor reading, CPU utilization just give the raw value without its unit (%), is there any way to alter that?


Thank you a lot, I really appreciate your help. Tested so many programs now and none showed all the info i would like to work with, some values are always missing in each application which other's are able to display - I really hope to find the tool to go with aida64.

1) AIDA64 exports all core temperatures via WMI.  It all depends on the other application (that takes and displays those readings from WMI) which values does it read from there.


2) AIDA64 exports fan duty cycle settings as well.  See #1 ;)


3) Units are not exported to WMI, but the type and ID fields can be used (by the other application) to figure out the unit and display it.  With temperatures, voltages and fan RPMs it's easy, since you only have to use the type field.  With system readings (like CPU utilization, CPU clock, CPU multiplier, etc) you have to make the other application a bit more clever by checking the ID field as well.

I really feared that you would say something like that. So it all depends on AC and the Aquasuite, that those values even though published correctly by aida64, cannot be imported :-/.

Though I've seen some screenshots over in the AC Forums where this guy has been able to import at least some of those values (i.e. 1. CPU Core 2 Temp / 1. CPU Core 4 Temp) which are missing here (and it looked like he would have used one of the most recent Versions of Aquasuite). Also it's really hard to believe that so important values like GPU1 Diode / GPU2 Diode would have been messed up without many ppl complaining...


Could it have to do with something else that is blocking access to those values (AISuite II i.e.)? But I guess then the fields would'nt be populated at all in the normal aida64 sensor menu either.

The mentioned values (CPU core temperatures, CPU utilization, fan duty cycles) aren't related to AI Suite at all.  You can verify what values AIDA64 exports to other applications if you enable the Registry exporting as well (in AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / External Applications), open the Registry Editor (REGEDIT.EXE), and navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\FinalWire\AIDA64\SensorValues.
