Power Supply Support in AIDA64

Recommended Posts

I'm shopping for a new PS and would like it to be supported by AIDA64. Is it possible to get a list of PS manufacturers supported?

Thanks!

AIDA64 supports all PSUs.  If you mean such smart PSUs that can monitor their own voltages, temperatures and fan RPM, then all such PSU manufacturers offer products with or without such smart capabilities.  So it's not possible to tell for example that "AIDA64 supports monitoring of all Corsair PSUs", since not all Corsair PSUs have such advanced features.  AIDA64 basically has monitoring facilities for certain Corsair PSU, Enermax PSUs, Gigabyte PSUs, and Thermaltake PSUs.  If you happen to buy a PSU with smart capabilities that is currently unsupported by AIDA64, we can look into it and most likely we can implement support for it if you can help a bit about test runs ;)

Edit: Also, why it's difficult for us to provide you with a full list of smart PSU models supported by AIDA64 is because AIDA64 supports PSU protocols, and not actual PSU models or SKUs.  And even though I can say like "AIDA64 supports Corsair AXi, HXi and RMi Series of PSUs", the PSU protocols used by those PSUs may also be used in other PSU families of Corsair (or might be another manufacturer using the same protocol, although the chances are low).

Thank you, Fiery, the manufacturer name was all I was expecting, not the specific PSUs for all the reasons you mentioned :).

Do these "smart" PSUs require a USB or such cable to enable monitoring by AIDA64? I can't see any "smart" labeling or feature specification in any of the PSUs from those manufacturers except that Corsair provides its own monitor through USB.

 

Thanks again!

All of the mentioned manufacturers use USB connection to provide readings to Windows software (either their own software or 3rd party software like AIDA64).  When a PSU features USB connecting capabilities, it's an almost 100% certain sign that it has smart monitoring capabilities.  And vice versa: if a PSU lacks USB connection, it most likely doesn't support any kind of monitoring features.  Also, it's best if you check reviews of the PSU you've picked online, and see if any of the reviews mention software monitoring capabilities.

Makes sense - I started looking at the PSU connector side image and using that to check for the USB connection, seems to do the trick :).

Thank you!

      Hi
      A few odd things. I've recently added cheap water cooling to my PC.
      It might be a misunderstanding  (or reconfiguration) on my pat. 
      1) Sometimes when I start the PC and AIDA64  auto starts, it only shows the 3 white fan options as shown in the bottom of pic "Turn on PC".
      If I close AIDA64 and restart it, or reboot, it comes up with the 5 fans it should have (see bottom of pic "Restarted"), 
      2) very occasionally it starts correctly by showing the 5 fan options, but will say both the GPU Rad fan and the Temp Side Fan are 0 RPM even though they are spinning (sorry haven't got a pic for this)
      Note, Power supply fan should be 0 RPM as it's a quite PS that only starts the fan if needed
      3) With my CPU watercooler, I installed Corsairs iCUE fan control software (I presume this is needed to control the fans?).  That software shows completely different CPU temps to yours. When running your Stress Test, (all in C)
      After 40 seconds, yours says 39 , iCUE says 33.7
      After 2 mins, yours says 40  iCUE says 34.3
      After 3 mins yours says 40  iCUE says 34.8
      After 4 mins yours says 41, iCUE says 35.1
      After 6 mins yours says 41, iQUE says 35.6
      After 11 mins yours says 42 iQUE says 36.1
      Pics of the above attached.  I left it running for a while longer, but the temp stayed fluctuating  between  41/42.
      Then after I'd stopped your stress test for a couple of mins or so your s/w says 29, iQUE says 34.6

      I just upgrade my system and with my new motherboard an ASUS ROG Maximus X Code no fan information is listed in the sensor panel. I have upgraded to the latest beta version. 5.95.4522.

      Currently running WIN 10 Pro 1709 on newly built machine.  I am unable to see my Corsair AIO H115i cooler in AIDA64.  I am able to see it in HWinfo64 as well as through Corsair Icue & Corsair Link.  I have tried turning off Icue and Link and still I am unable to see this.  Also the only way to see my Corsair Commander pro in AIDA64 is to shut off Icue and Link.
      Any thought on being able to monitor my Corsair H115i as well as the Commander Pro?

      Hey,  I built a sensor panel for my new i9-7900k super machine  
      It has 2 mb connected temp thermisters.  AIDA name s them temperature 1 and 2
      I have 4 more on my Corsair commander pro.  Aida names them Temperature 1,2,3,4
       
      Can the names for these be set by AIDA in aida sensor names?   Id like for the top, something more descriptive, like:   MB Temp Sensor 1
      and for the second set, something describing the connector, maybe taken from the usb hub device name like:  CCNP Temp Sensor 1 or H115Pro Temp Sensor
       
      Now, the fans are a different story, and should do the same, like the mb ones should be like:  MB Sysfan 2,  MB CPU Fan, MB CPU Opt, etc
      and the corsair ones like: CCNP Fan 1,  H115Pro Pump Fan,  H115Pro Radiator Fan
       
      Right now, it is virtually impossible to determine which fan is what item,  my fans show up as a hodge podge of names, like
      Fan 2,15,22,23,31

      Just built a new super machine with i9-7900x
       
      It has a new corsair cooler in it H115pro and a commander pro
       
      AIDA64 IS seeing these in the usb list:

       
      But it is not seeing the fans plugged 3 fans plugged directly into the commander pro.  It also does not see the 4 temp sensors plugged into the clcp commander
      or the h115 fan temps on the radiator or the water temps
      I built a cool sensor gauge panel but cant load these items.   I know aida has some problems with corsairlink4, but I am using SIV to control the corsair, so since you both use the correct lock values, it should work.  I do not run corsairlink 4 at all!
      How can i help you to figure this problem out?
