AlphaCool LCD support requires the AlphaCool LibUSB drivers to be installed. Just install the AlphaCool software bundle, and it should install the driver too.

I'm afraid that's not possible. But, here's a new AIDA64 update that now implements support for all 4 rotation options (0 degrees, 90 degrees, 180 degrees, 270 degrees) for AlphaCool and Samsung SPF L

I joined this forum just for this. I use Aida64 and i m really happy with it. But i used to use my Alphacool lcd and evererst while gaming and while folding with my screen off. Now my alphacool lcd is useless. Do you have any updates on this matter plz?

As I've stated above:

In order to let us come up with our own AIDA64 plugin for AlphaCool, we would need either:

1) The source code or the uncompressed DLL image for acEverest.dll,

or

2) Guidelines (SDK, programming documentation) on how to develop a new AlphaCool plugin from scratch

Also, I was wondering if there were or could be any plans to introduce support for the all-in-one water cooling solutions on the market. Antec and Corsair have similar systems made by Asetek. They seem to work with people really well so maybe they would even provide a plugin or something. Just a though.

I attached a pic of the software that comes with the antec 920 that I own. But Corsair also has their own systems with the Corsair Link software that maybe could be integrated. It would be nice to just use the Aida interface instead of all the ones I have to use. Thanks Much!

Good idea, although please note that Corsair Link is not officially released yet. We're working with Corsair on implementing Corsair Link support in AIDA64. We'll contact Antec to find out if we can do the same with their products as well.

Thanks,

I know this is an old topic but the solution could be simple:

here are the sample code to get the values stored from Everest in the shared memory (file/options/ext. Apps/activate shared memory).

The alphacool app reads ist from there.:

Const

sharedmem_name = 'EVEREST_SensorValues';

Function ExtApp_SharedMem_ReadBuffer(bu:PChar;bu_size:DWord):Boolean;

Var

mappedData : PChar;

th : THandle;

Begin

Result:=False;

th:=OpenFileMapping(FILE_MAP_READ,False,sharedmem_name);

If th<>INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE Then

Begin

mappedData:=MapViewOfFile(th,FILE_MAP_READ,0,0,0);

If mappedData<>Nil Then

Begin

StrLCopy(bu,mappedData,bu_size);

If UnmapViewOfFile(mappedData) Then Result:=True;

End;

CloseHandle(th);

End;

End;

The only difference to AIDA64 is this:

Const

sharedmem_name = 'AIDA64_SensorValues';

An example of read values is attached:

Since Aida64 is essentially the same application as Everest and since there is no way to obtain the source files for the alphacool applications/plugins etc. why not add an option in "AIDA64 / Preferences / External applications" saying "Report as Everest_SensorValues to shared memory" or "Make values AlphaLCD Compatible" or something similar.

AlphaLCD is getting data from everest up to version 5.50. so my guess is that would do the trick.

I'm sorry for the delays, but this improvement didn't quite fit into our development schedule of AIDA64 v2.70. But now we got back to it, and implemented it as a non-GUI option. What you need to do is upgrade to the latest beta version of AIDA64 Extreme Edition available at:

http://www.aida64.co...03vxqt5pcb3gzip

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

Then start AIDA64, go to Preferences, and simply press the OK button, and close AIDA64. Then go to AIDA64 folder, open AIDA64.INI, and scan the file for the following line:

HWMonSharedMemName=AIDA64_SensorValues

You can edit that line to make the shared memory facility of AIDA64 compatible with plugins made for Everest ;)

Totally do not know what to do. Please explain exactly how to run the show on the Alphacool readings from Aida. None of this I do not understand. Do I need to have installed Everest and aida 64 and where the swap file?

Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your help.

1) You don't need Everest anymore

2) You only need the new AIDA64 beta:

http://www.aida64.com/downloads/aida64extremebuild2320tjb6lpwyzxzip

 

3) Start the new AIDA64 beta, go to Preferences, but only press the OK button there. Then close AIDA64

4) Go to AIDA64 folder, and find the file called AIDA64.INI. You need to edit that file, using e.g. Notepad

5) Inside the AIDA64.INI file you need to change the line:

HWMonSharedMemName=AIDA64_SensorValues

In that line you need to change AIDA64 to EVEREST to make the new AIDA64 compatible with AlphaCool. So the line should look like this:

HWMonSharedMemName=EVEREST_SensorValues

I'm afraid I cannot use better or more basic English than this :)

      I have put in a ticket twice on software that I bought without a response.  After AIDA64 is open for a while I get a memory\resource error and software doesn't work.  I have to close and reopen it.  This makes AIDA64 unuseable.  I could really use some support.
      This is happen on stable and beta release.

      Is it possible to use 2 (or more) LCDs display different data?  Example: #1 for essential CPU etc while a #2 would have cooling info like fans, liquid temps etc.  If so... what are some recommendations?  Keep hearing Beada (which could work).  Alternatively, is there a larger compatible LCD?  Ideallly bar style but 17-18 wide.
      TY in advance for any guidance!!

      Does AIDA64 have support for 3 GPU fans? I have an EVGA RTX 3080 FTW that has 3 GPU fans, however in AIDA64 I'm only seeing 2. My hope is to monitor the speed of all three fans. Is this behavior expected?

       
      Thanks!

      hi all, newbie here! this is my first post so i hope it has landed in the correct place..  be gentle!

      i have installed the 'simple' version of a64, is it possible to run multiple instances of the sensor panel? i have the sensor panel running in a 5 inch screen located inside my case but have a room change planned which will put the case high on a shelf out of my eye sight so i would like a second display for stats placed under my main monitor. i plan to use a larger screen say a 10.1 'ultrawide (if thats the correct term) as i like the extra real-estate. what are my options?
      on a similar topic, is it possible to create an 'unpublished' senor panel before removing the currently used panel? or would i have to save the current panel to file or something then start a new panel?
      also can anyone point me to gauge resources, ie pre made gauges? or an easy to understand tutorial for how to diy them? total novice here, but can follow an idiots guide!

      i have included the final evolution of my first attempt using the provided gauges etc, it took me ages to get rid of the green dials.. i finally gave up trying to figure it out in a64 so i just changed the hue on the 5inch monitor lol. really hoping to learn the skills to create something like i have seen on here.. some really nice work on the share your panel thread, some of those must have taken ages!!! impressive. 
      any advice greatly received, but remember your talking to an a64 absolute novice!!
      Thanks folks.
