Is there any way to have a transparent background to the sensor panel?

I'm afraid that isn't possible.

It's not a GZIP file, but a .sensorpanel file. You need to download that, and import it via the SensorPanel Manager. You can launch the SensorPanel Manager from the right-click context menu on the SensorPanel.

Thanks, but the panel can not show the power and temperatures. The SDD and HDD were also missing. Could you tell me the reason for this?

Not all systems are capable of measuring specific power or temperature values. You can find out what your computer can measure on the Computer / Sensor page in AIDA64.

I don't have the slightest clue how to get my sensors to look like this, or any of the pictures here.. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Love this product!!!

Open Aida64

Click on the 'File' tab at the upper left, then select 'Preferences'

The 'Preferences' window will open

Slide down to 'Hardware Monitoring' & click on 'SensorPanel' under it

The 'SensorPanel' option will display on the right pane

Click 'Show SensorPanel' and set a 'SensorPanel size' (in pixels) & click 'OK'

Find the Sensorpanel on your desktop

You can drag it where you want it to sit (unless you locked the position in preferences)

Right Click on the SensorPanel & select 'SensorPanel Manager'

Click on the 'New' button at the bottom

From here on you just experiment and see what is what :)

There's the problem, I don't see hardware monitoring feature in preferences.. I'am using the new business edition, humm!

I just wanted to share the SensorPanel design I've been working on. Any suggestions are welcome!

  • The mess of red lines in the CPU graph are the eight individual cores and the blue line is the overall load.
  • The RAM bar is the RAM utilization and has the memory clock, rated speed, and timings as well.
  • System temperatures are next, followed by the on-board fan speeds.
  • The GPU graph shows GPU load in blue, MC in red, and VE in yellow (which seems to be 0% all the time), indicated by the labels beneath the graph.
  • The GPU's current bus speed is above the graph, along with the GPU's current clock speed.
  • Video RAM utilization and clock speed, GPU diode temperature, and GPU fan speed are at the bottom.

Some thoughts:

  • I wish there were a cleaner way of showing individual CPU cores on a graph - maybe showing only physical cores instead of all eight from HyperThreading?
  • Sensor items that display hardware models would be nice for decorating the panel. Yes, I could just put a static label on there for my own personal use, but it wouldn't be very useful for someone else's system.
  • Colors used on the panel should be able to have alpha values set. This could allow some great aesthetics, but would also allow for some easier-to-read graphs with multiple values (like the CPU cores in this example).
  • Conditional coloring for sensor values would be great. For example, you can see above the CPU graph that the clock speed is lowered in an idle state; it would be nice to have this colored when not at max speed.
  • One other addition that would make designing these panels more efficient would be a CSS class-like system where you could use a style class in place of a specific color so you could change the color used on multiple elements with one change.

I've attached the SensorPanel file but I'd imagine you would need to have a similar board and CPU for it to work without some modifications. Here are my specs:

i7-3770K at 4.3GHz

Intel DZ77SL-50K board

16GB DDR3-1600 GSkill Ares memory

EVGA Geforce GTX 670 with 2GB RAM

Z77_i7-3770K_GF670.sensorpanel

Hey guys, just thought you might like my Star Trek TNG sensor panel. I styled it like the control panels from The Next Generation. It's fully functional. I'm always tweaking though. It's a large size. 1024 x 972. I usually use it with 25% transparency on my 1600 x 900 desktop. I may do another design, just to switch up now and again.
