Artist's Note

An illustro adaptation of Orbmu2k's Intel Core Series and GPUObserver Windows Gadgets.

I used and referenced his gadgets regularly, but after the Windows Gadgets vulnerability and Microsoft's "fix" being to disable gadgets completely, I had trouble finding a replacement.

Requires OpenHardwareMonitor. I chose this route because I'm a gamer and I use ENB graphic modifications on some games and I've found OpenHardwareMonitor to work perfectly and not cause me to look for workarounds when using programs like MSI Afterburner.

Setup instructions are in the readme.txt file and in the skin .ini files in your Documents/Rainmeter/Skins/illustrogadgets folder

Some not so apparent features of these skins:

* CPU and GPU Temps will turn Red when they exceed a value that you can set
* Memory usage bars for system RAM and GPU's will turn Orange when they exceed values that you can set

Licensing: the artist has specified that ports and mods are allowed.

Do you have OpenHardwareMonitor running? It's required for this to work.

Then you need to find the Sensor name(s) of your Radeon HD 6950 and make sure they match in GPU0.ini

I have a similar problem with my 5850 crossfire setup.
I renamed the hardware and sensor names in OpenHardwareMonitor and matched them in the .ini files. It doesnt give me the error but instead it doesnt update...stays at 0. Please help! I really want this plugin to work : /
