Artist's Note

Displays the System CPU utilization and a histogram.

Has two functional modes: With or without spinners. (Spinners take up more CPU usage, but it's so small that it's like 0-2% on most PCs)

The spinner rotates faster as more CPU is utilized.

The spinners can be toggled on/off using the Kerrigan Control skin:

CPU temperature currently requires Everest running with reporting sensor logs to the registry.

If CPU usage stays at or near 100% for 1-2 minutes the skin will automatically shut down all spinners.

Note this is V1.0.1

Apparently made a mistake when uploading and overwrote v102 with v101.

I'll have it fixed soon.

The cpu load string needed to be shifter to the right abit.
I have already done this on my PC and added multi core Strings also (At least for my i7 anyways).
This is a nice addon though and fun to tweak and change.

IDK just a thought though but have the big rotator for overall and drop the usage auto shutoff, make smaller rotators for each processor core and drop the histogram.

On the RAM widget i made the outer and inner rotating images go different directions, pretty cool

Also a HDD activity device may be interecting

Sorry, but one more question. Why the
it make the max TempRing Display only about 70*, but the real temp can be higher.
I think
make the max TempRIng Display to ~9x*, like the limit temp of many CPU.

I just registered for you, IF YOU WANT TO RUN THIS WITH SPEEDFAN, JUST EDIT IN CPU_Spinner.ini directly under:

; Tempurature


Then you run Speedfan by the way in your Taskbar. So download ist before.

Greetz from Germany. :)

THX for this cool Skin.

Everest is discontinued, so I am using AIDA64. I know its a pain to write out how to change this for each one, but AIDA is the only one that recognizes my 8 core, which is another issue I need to figure out. One main temp should be ok though. I just mainly need it to work with AIDA64

Being the American programmer I am, I converted this to work with the main core of the processor using the CoreTemp plugin. It updates around every 5 seconds, other wise it would become a process itself trying to keep up. Here is the replacement code below

Help! It shows the temperature of my CPU stays at 0! Why?

thanks Sethe23, I just fixed my Kerrigan CPU with CoreTemp plugin (modded it back to Celsius temps though). awesome!

I also had to mod the CPU MHz portion in cpu_spinner.ini file to keep refreshing the CPU speed as I am running a 3770K with dynamic Turbo mode, so that changes frequently, used updatedivider=40 in both measure section and then display section and it seems to do the trick perfectly!

Help, I have shown that the temperature is equal to 0, what to do?
