Need guage type widgets or software for monitoring vitals

I have an 8in 720 display I just setup in order to watch system vitals, like temps, fan speeds, storage, etc. Problem is, reading HWinfo at a quick glance is a little hard to do due to the text being so small.

 

I'd like something like widgets or a program that gets reading from HWinfo that displays info in a graphical type of way.

 

I'd really like to stay with HWinfo, as that loads at boot for my keyboard display.

 

Running Win10

 

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure you can use rivatuner (the same program used with afterburner to display fps/temps in games) to display anything you want on any window. Just right click in HWInfo and click "OSD" settings.

I use OHM's gadget to monitor stuff. It's a widget you can customize to show whatever you need.

 

Here's a screenshot of it:

In order to turn it on you have to click on view and then "show gadget". After that, just right click something you want to monitor and select "show in gadget".

You can also customize the gadget by right-clicking it or if you want to rename stuff just right-click it in OHM and click in "rename".

I'll check it out. I've got Riva (haven't played with it yet), installed Rainmeter and Win10 gadgets, as well as HWinfo gadget. I need to spend some time playing with them all and see about getting only what I want displayed. Tdie being the most important (due to the temp offset with Ryzens).

 

I just hate to have more loaded in background than necessary.

Screw it....I'm just going to create a custom HWiNFO.ini. Less background processes.

There's Android app which you could use with emulator, but thats more system usage vs good it will do.

OHM only takes up 6mb of RAM for me so, I doubt that makes any difference.
