Hey guys!

Im hoping for some input regarding my question. I saw, AIDA64 is supporting a lot of different displays and interfaces. Now which one to choose? Heres some more input from me about what im looking for:

  • [Mandatory] 5-8 inch LCD display
  • [Mandatory] only USB powered
  • [Mandatory] black frame design to match my case, if possible
  • [Optional] A flat, not too thick one
  • [Optional] small bezels if possible
  • [Optional] No buttons neccessary, i want to place it inside of my case.
  • [Optional] an internal USB connector to directly connect it to the motherboard

At the moment im using some Aquacomputer Vision OLEDs which are working fine. But i can already see some burn in and they are pretty small. Since theres no LCD coming from Aquacomputer anytime soon, im thinking about using AIDA64 to get my data on screen. I have 3 of those OLED on each of the drive bay covers, this is more or less the space i have available

I have attached a screenshot of the system with the OLEDs and their current placement for you to visualize.

 

Thank you for your suggestions!

How about BeadaPanel? They have 5-inch and 7-inch screen as well now:

Hm interesting, this whole BeadaPanel support is pretty new, so i guess it will be available for a while.

Looks good so far, a little black housing around it and it would also look nice.

 

Anything else you could suggest, maybe something similar with a black case? There are a lot of raspberry pi displays around on amazon, but i guess not all of them will work with AIDA64 out of the Box? Since BeadaPanel is also for Pi's...

 

EDIT: found this one: Matrix Orbital EVE2-50G, needs an additional USB-Kit for connection, but its available directly for order in germany and its supported by AIDA64. Would this one also be OK?

Yes, EVE2 and EVE3 are both fully supported by AIDA64.

Ok, thank you very much! Im still not sure which display "type" to choose, cause sadly none of the above mentioned displays is available in germany, which adds a lot of shipping costs to the price. Simple HDMI screens are available for less money and are more flexible (and can be shipped from within germany).

 

But thanks anyway for your suggestions! :)

Yes, in general a 2nd hand 15 or 17-inch LCD monitor is quite a bit more affordable than modern 5-inch or 7-inch USB-connected screens.

"There are a lot of raspberry pi displays around on amazon, but i guess not all of them will work with AIDA64 out of the Box?"

Yes, it works, power by usb 5v and "image data" by hdmi ... use as "second monitor" -> works fine and is compatible, use "normal" sensor panel and drag it to second screen. Many of them has a black case (and you can ever make a custom for that).
3,5pol, 5 pol, 7pol and bigger.

Just make sure they are powered by usb (mini or type c) and the video connection is either hdmi or mini hdmi. Another thing you can do is look for those displays that don't have a touch, they'll be a little cheaper - a little bit, but since the goal is not to use the touch, you can simplify it. All the cables you can hide into your case and optional, with the "frame", you can put it out of the case ando it looks well too.

      Hi all! 
      I was recently brain storming on how to display sensor info from aida64 SSE. I wasn't a huge fan on having a secondary sensor display connected through HDMI, as windows does weird things when you have 'multiple' displays connected and even windows 11 doesn't fix it. 
      So I came up with a solution to display the sensor info through a raspberry pi, a web browser and a tiny bit of javascript. 
      If this could be of any use to anyone else, please feel free to either create a PR or fork it and play around with it on your own.

      I installed the Beada Panel, great!  
      But:
      Entering Standby Mode, it does not switch off, instead showing ScreenSavers.
      Is there a way to change that?

      Hello,
      I hope this hasn't already been covered, not found this exact question though already asked.
      4D Systems makes a bunch of LCD products which mainly have UART interfaces. They are not primary display interfaces, so don't take an HDMI input etc from your PC, they can be programmed to handle serial data and display it in various ways. You design the GUI yourself in their IDE and then you feed it the data you want in the known format, and make it do what you like with that data.
      What I am trying to find out is if there is a way to use AIDA64 to collect the data from the PC, such as CPU temperature etc, and send the data out the UART to the display. I don't want all the graphics from AIDA64, all I want is the data for the sensors.
      I have used AIDA64 for a while, going to a external HDMI monitor and displaying data on that, and it works, but now and then I get issues where windows decides the little monitor is the primary, or the mouse goes in there and gets stuck, and all sorts of other weird things. I also dont want it loading my GPU at all, I just want it off that whole system entirely.
      Is there a way to have AIDA64 export in a stream the selected Sensor data, to the serial UART? These 4D displays can handle BAUD's into the MBaud rates, so not 9600 or 115200 type levels.
      If there is, can you please point me in the right direction.
      If there is a way to get this data, I can create a demo project use a 4D Systems display, and post that up here for other people to use as a base. I have used 4D displays for years in various applications at work and around the house, we build full systems at work using their products, and it just seems the perfect application for PC Chassis builds, rather than using HDMI type solutions off the GPU. Let the display do the GUI 'heavy lifting' itself with its GPU and just feed it the data it is looking for from AIDA64.
      Any tips would be appreciated
      Regards
