illustro Pulsar 1.7 Rainmeter by Pul53dr1v3r illustro Pulsar 1.7 Rainmeter by Pul53dr1v3r
illustro Pulsar is inspired by standard illustro design.

 This package includes following:

✔ HDD meters( C, D, E, F, G, H disks),
✔ HDD read/write(C, D, E, F, G, H disks) with activity indicators, 
✔ Network down/up with graph, activity indocators and IP information,
✔ GPU usage, temp, fan rpm info with bar(ATI/Nvidia),
✔ Recycle bin skin, 
✔ CPU skin (2, 4, 6 & 8 cores ),
✔ RAM skin,
 Up Time skin,
✔ Clock (Date/Time),
✔ Calendar (original by smurfier),
✔ Battery,
 PSU (Basic and Professional versions)


Instruction:

As the first, you need to have FULL VERSION of AIDA64 for the CPU_RAM, PSU and GPU skins. Others work independently of AIDA. Always check out for the latest version of the program and the skins.

AIDA64 must be running all the time if you want to see all the functions of the skins working properly.

To set up the skins that works properly configure AIDA64 as described below.

Run the program (AIDA64) and go to --> Files --> Preferences --> External Applications:

- Check the "Enable writing sensor values to Registry" box [must be enabled],
postimg.org/image/orgiq2ecr/ ,

- check all the boxes like you see on the picture on the next link:
postimg.org/image/zek1nao1d/ ,

- set up AIDA64 to start up with Windows [OPTIONALLY]:
postimg.org/image/xtbeuzgnz/ .

 FOR ATI CARD OWNERS: ATI Card users have to enter the Total DEDICATED video memory amount manually unlike nVIDIA users.
It will take a couple of minutes to do it, not more. Choose the ATI GPU skin. Here is a pic how and where to enter the amount in MB (delete the white text "Enter amount_"):

-PSU Skin(s) You can use this skin only of you've got an adequate PSU with Data Link (Corsair RMi, HXi, AXi... series with Corsair Link). 
Here is an instruction how to setup AIDA64 for Basic or Pro version of the skin: 
postimg.org/image/4mbbu5yop/
Then enter the Total Wattage of your Power Supply Unit in the skin code: 
postimg.org/image/4demdm5ip/
Mine has 850 Watts of the Total power, so I've entered that value. 


That's it. Enjoy!!!

ok..got it now...I think you need to mention the version of AIDA you are using as there are so many...1st time I got the version 5.6 - many sensors were missing unlike the latest version 5.75 was fine with my system...

For SSD and HDD still trying to figure out how to make it show the read/write activity indicator...

Hello, I really like your setup but it kills Rainmeter. I don't know what part of this package is broken but it brings up a CLR20r3 on Rainmeter until I remove your skin from my My Documents/Rainmeter/skins folder.

Hi. Try to remove the Top Processes folder from: C:\Users\USER\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\illustro Pulsar 1.5. That skin makes problems for some users. The main reason is in  TopProcesses.dll file installed in: C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\Rainmeter\Plugins. Skin has no problems by itself but the .dll does crash. I'm going to remove the Top Processes skin in the future release of the package.

For my GPU everything works except for the main temp, all it says is Trial. Why is that? Besides that very nice skin

This is probably because you only have the Trial Version of Aida64, therefore the GPU Temperature isnt unlocked. Just google "Aida64 pro key" and then upgrade to the Pro Version. Shouldnt be a problem afterwards.

Gathurian's right. You have to have a full version of the software installed if you are getting that message(s).

Hi.
This is a really neat looking skin, and i love it.

I would though like to hear, if you could make some CPU and GPU graph skins, like the HDD and NET skins, så we could get a bit of tracking on hov the GPU and CPU is used both in load and temp? That would be great :D

Thanx for some really great work :D

Is there a way to get this to work, but without AIDA64? Maybe using coreTemp or CPUz and GPUz?

Oh one more thing.
In the GPU section the text "Memory: 0MB/2048MB [0%]" it doesn't show the data ?.
But in the "MEM" it does show the data.

I've followed you're instructions on how to setup AIDA64 and the rest of the data works, but not that memory.

I upgraded to the pro version.  It fixed the memory issue, but the temp readings were still at 0c.

I was able to fix the temp readings after editing the GPU-ATI.ini;

changining this line;

RegValue=Value.TGPU1DIOD
into
RegValue=Value.TGPU1DIO

I also switched memory from dynamic to dedicated.
RegValue=Value.SGPU1USEDDEMEM

Hey man this is fantastic, great job.  Can you make the drives meter measure the free space in GB all the time.  For my TB drives which are mostly full, it will say for ex; 3.6TB/3.6TB when there are 93GB free.  Also for some reason the GPU won't read my temp or memory usage, I have done everything you mentioned in the tips with AIDA64, etc.  It's a 280x.  Thanks man!!  Good work.

Can't download :(

EDIT:..

Never mind. Avast was blocking it for some odd reason :-/ Can't wait to see the Weather plugin for this.

p.s. Having a SpeedFan plugin would definitely make this complete :-)

Love this, thanks. It looks tight.
The only thing I changed is that you didn't have an internal IP displayed on the network meter. But that was easily added.

Keep up the good work!

You just can change it manually. There is no way to change it automatically as a drive letter.

Find the line 100 to change the name:
