Is possible to monitor a PC using a tablet (MSI afterburner)

There's app called Remote System Monitor https://www.trigonesoft.com/

 

Setup can be bit pain, and getting it look the way you like another pain. But it will be what you are after.

I have my PC with the last version of MSI afterburner, and overclocked GPU.

Sometimes use the rivatuner things to display some info about the CPU and GPU on OSD, and if i want to take a look at the graph i have to ALT + TAB every time.

 

I also have an Android tablet laying around doing nothing.

 

What i would like to do is having real time graph showing on my tablet, i don't need to have control of it, just having a game running full screen on my PC and the tablet for, sometimes, monitoring it.

 

I looked on the web and found the MSI Remote Server and MSI afterburner app for android, but both of them looks outdated (the app is not even on the play store) and i was not able to configure them.

 

There is some way to do something like this? My plan was to do this via wi-fi, i don't know if, as a last attempt, i could use the tablet as a secondary monitor and have the graph on it.

 

I also have a second PC, low spec one, that if possible, i could use.

 

Both PC run Win 10

Tablet run Android 9 (is a Galaxy Tab S4)

 

I really appreciate if someone could help me.

NZXT Cam has a mobile app where you can monitor temps and usage from your phone in real time. I haven't used it in a year or two so I don't know if it's still a thing.


Main Desktop: Cpu - I9-9900k @5ghz | Mobo - Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master | Gpu - Asus ROG STRIX 2080ti OC Ram - G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB 3200mhz | Aio - H100i Pro RGB | Psu - Evga 850 G3 | Case - Fractal Design Meshify C White | Storage - Samsung 970 Pro M.2 NVME SSD 1x 1TB 1x 512GB / 1x Seagate Ironwolf Pro 4TB HDD |

 

TV Streaming PC: Intel Nuc CPU - i7 8th Gen | RAM - 16GB DDR4 2666mhz | Storage - 256GB WD Black M.2 NVME SSD |

 

Phone: Samsung Galaxy S10+ - Ceramic White 512GB |

 

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.

Looks like it work only with 1s update time, if i set the minimum (which is 0,2s) it have lots of delay and don't regularly update but otherwise is quite good (not like my CPU temp)

I searched those monitor apps some time ago, but decided against it. Having actual 2nd monitor at home is enough, and using 10" tablet with laptop is just pointless.
