Hello,

Thanks for a great skin, I only recently got into Rainmeter and managed to make a neat desktop for myself thanks to your skin mainly.

I have a slight problem with the cpu/gpu component though. After a while it starts to display core utilization over 50% on each core even when total bar shows <5% cpu utilization.

When I refresh all skin from tray it gets fixed, but i'll look at it after few minutes and it's like that again.

Although I edited the skin I didn't touch any of the parts concerning the core utilization. I only removed the title bar, top process + process count, and I rewrote the temperature part to use HWInfo instead of Speedfan.

Any suggestion on what might be going on ?

Thanks

@sammel: This happens on my pc as well. Sorry to say that I don't have a clue as to why this happens. As far as I can tell it has something to do with windows power management. The bars are always stuck at 50% after coming out if sleep mode or after the amount of time to power off the monitor. I just reset the skin to get it un stuck.

I can report I have succesfuly worked around the issue by rewriting most of the forcex to use sensor readings form HWiNFO plugin, I just totally forgot I posted here as well - I made a post about it on DA.

Big thanks for awesome skin, it's sopmething i always wanted to have on my screen :)

here, my current desktop made possible to be awesome by you http://i.imgur.com/wsAexMD.jpg

Awesome work. I may have to check out this HWiNFO some day. Perhaps the issue is just with speedfan then?

Perhaps, I know speedfan works great for some people, but I just never been able to make it work for me.

If you want to look into the HWiNFO, the page for plugin is here.

And perhaps if you plan on new release then you could use the work I've already done, up to you - here's the link to your skin I modified for hwinfo + new graphic card monitor I wrote to fit with your skin

edit: it also uses the TopProcesses plugin from http://customize.org/rainmeter/skins/82306

Hi. I discovered this skin few months ago, and I really like it.

I've been working to do it compatible for HWinfo plugin, in order to show more information, and I have added a lot of new features.

In honor of this skin, I called it "FORC3XT"

Here you can find it:

Some snaps to show how it works...

Hey everyone. I have created a fork of this project (ForceXtreme) and it combines ForceX and Illustro Gadets together. It uses HwINFO instead of SpeedFan. Below is a screenshot of what is to come.
