Very nice!

I also have a custom loop and Asus Hero X motherboard. I have a temperature sensor connected to the temperature sensor header and HWinfo and AIDA64 can see the temperature, but Argus Monitor doesn't see it.
Did you had to enable/install extension so the sensor could be read by Argus Monitor? I'd really like to setup my fan profiles based on water temperature.

I know this a little offtopic, but I Googled a lot and couldn't find anything about this.

The header I plugged mine into came up as sensor 4, named Virtual_Temp by default, I think.

Do you get any motherboard temp sensors at all? There should be at least 3 normally.

I'm told version 4 of Argus Monitor can now read additional sensors on some Asus boards, via a second sensor chip, but reading that second chip requires the Asus software to be installed (AI Suite, I believe). I don't have/want/need that so I haven't got it installed or tried it.

FWIW I am not using the actual water_in or water_out temp headers on my Maximus X Hero. I switched over to the generic temperature header as it gave me more options in the BIOS. I had already switched to that header before I started using Argus Monitor so I haven't tried it with any others.

Yes, I get 3 default ones that you also have in your screenshot, but not the 4th one that should be the external temp sensor. I don't have it connected to the water in/out headers, because that didn't read any temps in the BIOS, so I'm using the normal temperature sensor header (and I think there is only 1 on the Hero X)

In HWinfo and AIDA64, my water temperature sensor is read correctly, but Argus Monitor doesn't detect it.
I've also installed AI Suite an hour ago just as a test, but then Argus Monitor gives an error messages that it is in conflict with AI Suite, so I removed AI Suite again. And I don't want it on my system to be honest.

I get this error when trying to install on Win10:

Invalid package:
Argus Monitor Demos_1.1.0.1.rmskin

The Skin Packager tool must be used to create valid .rmskin packages.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

I'm not sure why it is doing that, but I see the same thing in Win10 1809.

I had to install the old skin/plugin, then rename the new one to .zip and copy the plugin DLL out manually.

Aside from the DLL code and file version, the two skin files are identical as far as I can tell, so I am not sure why Raibmeter doesn't like the newer version. If anyone has any ideas, let me know and I'll fix it.
