I've got a motherboard that doesn't support temp sensors - I'd like to monitor my coolant temperature in my closed loop.  I can easily put together an Arduino that monitors a temp sensor.  Is there any way I can get this into Aida64?

For example I could output every second (or whatever) the temp on the USB COM port, or I could write a small DLL that reads the value from the Arduino and exposes a public method for reading the value.

I've searched through the forums but I don't see much in the way of this kind of support.

Thoughts?

Thanks,

Damon

Currently there's no support for such custom thermal sensors, but in case you come up with an implementation that we can support from AIDA64, it would be our pleasure to add it.  There are various ways to get a value to AIDA64, a DLL or a shared memory region may be best out of those.  You can also write the value to the Registry at a certain path or go WMI.  Out of those Registry and WMI are the least ideal in terms of performance and system overhead though.

If you go DLL, make sure to develop both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of it too.  AIDA64 currently can load a 32-bit DLL but other applications may need a 64-bit DLL to work with.
