  • Speedfan settings in RR using mce 2.0

    Anyone know how to set SpeedFan in RR? I know MBM automatically does it, so I am confused on how to get speedfan to come up in the skin. I am using CDRskull's MCE2.0 skin and see the status.skin, but can't figure out how to point it to speedfan.

    Any help would be appreicated.

    I would like to know as well. MBM and Epia boards to not work very well.

      I had never heard of speedfan until mentioned here. From the looks of it, there's no SDK/API for integration whatsoever, so all you can do is embed it into a skin as described in the FAQs (or run it from the launch screen).

        You have to contact the author about how to communicate with SpeedFan. LCDC can communicate with it. IIRC he uses sendmessages.

          I asked this question ages ago. I use Speedfan and it would be great if the stats could be displayed in the Status page of MC2.0. Hope someone comes up with a solution

            Don't wanna sound like a d!ck but why even bother? The whole point of being able to set it up on auto control is so that you don't have to look at the temp gauge.... If it's that you don't trust it to do it's job then I wouldn't run it in the first place. FWIW I have it running on several systems and it's never failed me once.

              as you read the help file of MBM you know that MBM doesn't report SPEEDFAN.
              what you see in MC20 is the value 255. this value is a fixed for no work.

              the small proggi -mbm-sensors- shows you all possible values.

                I actually want to replace MBM with speedfan. MBM gives me false info with my MII-12000.

                I started reading through the FAQ's on how to embed a app into RR. I guess this is the way to go.

                  So there's no way to display the values from Speedfan into a skin like you can with MBM?

                    Currently not! Perhaps later, I hope!

                      Here some informations from the programmer of SpeedFAN. http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php

                      Code:
                      SpeedFan publishes a Shared Memory area.
                      Using Delphi convention:
                      
                          TSharedMem=packed record
                                        version:word;
                                        flags  :word;
                                        MemSize:integer;
                                        handle :THandle;
                                        NumTemps:word;
                                        NumFans :word;
                                        NumVolts:word;
                                        temps:array[0..31] of integer;
                                        fans :array[0..31] of integer;                 
                                        volts:array[0..31] of integer;
                                      end;
                      
                      The name of the shared memory area is "SFSharedMemory_ALM".
                      INTEGER is a 32 bit signed integer.
                      Consider that these specs were written a long time ago and might change in the future, but, currently, they are working fine ever since :-)
                      Im no programmer and hope these information hand for an implementation in RR.
