Install

2.1+
Uses the Rainmeter skin installer

2.0
The downloaded zip file contains a folder named ForceX extract and place this folder into your "Documents/Rainmeter/Skins" folder. Your directory structure should look something like this after: "Documents/Rainmeter/Skins/ForceX"

Tips & Information

Dynamic setting of network connection type based on versions of windows. XP, Vista, 7, & 8 is working, but may need more testing on many different versions of windows to make sure i got all the naming conventions correct.

Network Issues: (the following goes for all Rainmeter skins)

Set your network speed in the FXSM_V2_Settings.inc file.
Current setting is 18000000 for 18Mb or 2MB

ONLY DO THIS IF NETWORK MONITOR IS DISPLAYING THE WRONG SPEEDS AND YOU HAVE SET YOUR SPEED BASED ON YOUR ISP OR LOCAL LAN

Wireless addon NIC or USB set your Interface number to 0 if 1-5 do not work.

For those of you that may be having problems with the network graph displaying incorrect network speed; you will need to change the interface number under Network Interface Settings in the FXSM_V2_Settings.inc file. The current interface is set to 3 this is the network interface number on my machine which is the second network port on the motherboard. So make your changes accordingly. Usually 1-5. This goes for all Rainmeter skins you may download, though I have placed this information in the settings.inc file so you only need to make changes in one place. Other skins you may need to change the numbers on many different lines.

HDD Settings:

Change your drive assignments in the FXSM_V2_Settings.inc file. Current drive associations are:

Drive1=C:
Drive2=E:
Drive3=F:
Drive4=G:
Drive5=H:
Drive6=I:
Drive7=J:

Setting up SpeedFan:

SpeedFan is required to be installed in order for the skin to report system temperatures.

To setup SpeedFan:
1: Download and Install from [link]
2. Set SpeedFan to startup with windows by adding it to the startup folder.
3. Configure SpeedFan to monitor your GPUs and CPU. Do this by clicking Configure and selecting the check boxes by the GPUs and CPU. The order of the selection list will be how you set up SpeedFan in the FXSM_V2_Settings.inc file. The top most listed item will be number 0. The second will be 1 and so on.
4. Edit the FXSM_V2_Settings.inc files SFCPU= "your number here", SFGPU1 = "your number here" SFGPU2 = "your number here"
5. Refresh the skin.


Change Log:
3.0.6
Changes:
1. Centered the CPU and GPU temperature bars
2. You can assign a max value for Fahrenheit & Celsius in the FXSM_V3_Settings.inc file. This affects how the temperature bars and graphs scale.

Really like this Skin for RainMeter.  Great Job!  I have been looking to replace Windows Sidebar Gadgets, and this perfectly fits the bill. 

I have started customizing, and have ran into a bit of an issue with the CPU Core Activity.  Temps work great, and the overall CPU usage % is correct, but the independent core readings are always showing 100% (blue bar all the way across).  Screenshot here:  lookpic.com/O/i2/735/n6nWjfsD.…

I have an Intel 970 i7 with 6 Physical cores.  I have seen a few other post about the same thing.  Any thoughts on how to fix this issue?  Thank you.

This happens from time to time mostly after the computer comes out of sleep mode and i don't know why. To fix it simply right click on the CPU monitor and select refresh skin. This will fix the stuck bars.

This is awesome!  I was looking for exactly this (a tool that monitors loads and temps of things like CPU, GPU, and also network monitoring, etc.).  It's working flawlessly for me right out of the box.  I downloaded and installed SpeedFan, which actually BSOD my machine twice (I had done some OC Tweaking and hadn't rebooted yet, so I'm not sure if that was the real cause).  I reverted the changes, then reinstalled SpeedFan.  I then downloaded and installed ForceX and popped up the monitors--> everything's working without any manual tweaking at the moment.  I not the fan speeds will need my manual tweaking once I decide to monitor that, but thanks so much!

Hey man, my CPU readings are inccorect. I can't read the SpeedFan's plugin in Notepad++ and don't fancy unpacking it in IDA :-P. I don't believe #SFCPU# should be the value as it's reading 70~*c, whereas my temperature in SpeedFan is 40~*c.

You might be reading the wrong value from speedfan. You need to make sure you are accessing the correct temp monitor from speedfan in the skin.

Make sure to read the description above on how to configure the skin and speedfan.

Does this skin interpret each thread as a core, also?

ForceX34 Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2014
Yes. If you have a 4 core i7 it will show as a 8 core CPU.

Love this skin, its almost perfect for what I'm looking for, which is a replacement for what I used to have with the Sidebar Gadgets. All I would like to say is I wish Sammaelus had posted his mod, it sounds like it would have been awsome! Anyway thanks again for your hard work!
