I do mate and yes there own precision x monitors it you can even through up a map diagram were each sensor is that shows temps, only shows one fan speed but there is two speeds (default) but can be set in custom profile or set both the same.

seems like EVGA are replacing all the ACX3.0 for ICX coolers, so it will be worth looking into as others may follow suit.

We've checked, and unfortunately we haven't found any classic ways of obtaining those values from the video card :(  iCX must use a custom communication protocol, but we have no idea how it works and how to handle it.

We've found something... Do you have a video card that supports iCX? ;)

always notice and fixes like that are welcomed indeed, i was going to post about it but the update came out, you beat me too it lol.

one thing i do want to know is are you doing to add EVGA - iCX support ? would not mind adding this to the alpha and mega screens, well some of it

We've implemented preliminary EVGA iCX sensor support in the latest beta version of AIDA64 Extreme available at:

https://www.aida64.com/downloads/latesta64xebeta

After upgrading to this new version, make sure to restart Windows to finalize the upgrade.

Let me know how it works. Note that the iCX related readings will only appear on the Computer / Sensor page at this time.  As the new sensor module gets more mature, we'll add the readings to the LCD, SensorPanel, OSD Panel (etc) modules as well.

Please note that currently it supports a single video card model: EVGA GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 iCX. If it doesn't work on your video card, or in case you have a different video card that features iCX sensor, please right-click on the bottom status bar of AIDA64 main window --> Video Debug --> nVIDIA SMBus Dump. Copy-paste the full results into this topic, or attach the results as a TXT file to your post. You may need to enable status bar in AIDA64 / main menu / View first.

      Hi,
      it would be nice if there was the possibility to send sensor values unformatted as a number or percentage, via a serial port.
      Similar to the LCD displays, only without formatting, or pure numbers with separators.
      Together with a small GUI.
      Background is the simple evaluation of the data with a microcontroller and display in different ways.
      I imagine not only LCD or OLED, but rather seven segment display, nixi tubes or an analog pointer display. That would create a lot of possibilities.

      Hey Aida Team,
      i have some issues with this Adafruit LCD wich is recomended. On the two Pictures you can see what aida should do and what can i see on the Display. The First line is completely erased and the screen is flickering. The Adafruit Backpack is set to 20x4 LCD. When the Display is updating you can see the right setting for a millisecond.
      But if i change the LCD Setting in AIDA to 16x2, and leave the Backpack in 20x4 mode,  the Screen isn flickering and the first line is there. I think you got a little problem with the 20x4 Driver. I have Searched for the code but i cant find it, to edit it if i found the failure. 
       
      Please give me response for this BUG. I have extra ordert this overpriced 50€ LCD for it. 
      Greetings Daniel from Germany

      We've added support for RoboPeak RPUSBDisp color graphical USB-connected LCD display.

      You can enable the LCD device from AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / LCD / RoboPeak. Currently there is no Windows driver made specifically for RoboPeak displays.  But there's a workaround: you can use the AlphaCool LCD driver (Version 2.1).  The driver installation has to be forced due to the USB device ID mismatch (between AlphaCool and RoboPeak displays).
      The driver installation works as:
      Open Device Manager --> Other devices --> double-click on rp-usbdisp --> Update Driver button --> Browse my computer for driver software --> Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer --> Show All Devices --> Next button --> Have Disk button --> Browse button --> select acusbdisplay.inf file from the AlphaCool LCD driver folder --> Next button --> press Yes button on the Update Driver Warning message box.

      You can order a RoboPeak display from DFRobot at:
      https://www.dfrobot.com/product-1062.html#.UqfXHfSnoqX
      You can find the new AIDA64 beta update at:
      https://www.aida64.com/downloads/latesta64xebeta
      Please let us know if you find any difficulties enabling or using this new feature. Also let us know if you've got another kind of LCD device that is currently unsupported by AIDA64.

      We've added support for several Matrix Orbital USB character based and monochrome graphical LCD displays, including LK, MX, PK, VK, GLK, GLT, GX Typhoon, and their drive-bay and external variants as well.
      You can enable the LCD device from AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / LCD. The only thing needed to enable this feature is having the appropriate Matrix Orbital USB LCD drivers installed, and the LCD to be connected to a USB port. You can verify if your device is supported by AIDA64 by finding the device on the Devices / USB Devices page in AIDA64, and checking its Device ID. It should be one of the following IDs:
      0403-FA01
      0403-FA02
      0403-FA03
      0403-FA04
      0403-FA05
      1B3D-011F
      1B3D-0120
      1B3D-0121
      1B3D-0123
      1B3D-0125
      1B3D-0127
      1B3D-012C
      1B3D-0134
      1B3D-013E
      1B3D-013F
      1B3D-0140
      1B3D-0141
      1B3D-0155
      1B3D-0156
      1B3D-0157
      1B3D-0158
      1B3D-015E
      1B3D-0161
      1B3D-016A
      1B3D-016B
      1B3D-016C
      1B3D-0176
      1B3D-017B
      1B3D-01F0
      1B3D-01F1

      Due to their interface bottleneck BGK, EGLK, GLK and GLT displays perform display updates quite slowly, so visual discrepancies may be experienced when using the GLK (graphics) protocol on these displays. It is possible to use the LK (character based) protocol on GLK displays as well, which will work much faster. In order to switch between the GLK and LK protocols, you need to first disable the GLK protocol (in AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / LCD), and then enable the LK protocol on the same page. Ignore the error, and restart AIDA64 to apply the switch.
      You can find the new AIDA64 beta update at:

      Please let us know if you find any difficulties enabling or using this new feature. Also let us know if you've got another kind of LCD device that is currently unsupported by AIDA64. BTW, Abacom, AlphaCool, Digital Devices, LCD2USB, Mad Catz Venom, and SDC Megtron LCDs are also supported now by the latest AIDA64 beta.
