Author: JC634

Screen zip file: jc_C2D_CPU_Usage-BG.zip

Install Instructions:

Copy the screen out of the zip into the: C:\Program Files\CrystalControl2\screens directory, add it to your module. This screen also works for the CFA-634. edit: This should work just fine for dual core AMD processors, also!

Progamming the CFA-635 LEDs

Author: JC634

Programming Instructions:

The following example shows how to program the LED’s to display Dual Core CPU usage on the LED’s. The bottom 2 display Core 1 and the top 2 display Core 2. The code is placed at the end of the lcd_635.ini file.

Example:

led01_order=5
led01_smooth=7
led01_id_value=2213530968 ; Core 2 CPU usage id number
led01_value_max=100.000000 ; 100 % CPU usage
led01_value_min=50.000000 ; 50 % CPU usage
led02_order=5
led02_smooth=7
led02_id_value=2213530968 ; Core 2 CPU usage id number
led02_value_max=50.000000 ; 50 % CPU usage
led02_value_min=0.000000 ; 0 % CPU usage
led03_order=5
led03_smooth=7
led03_id_value=2741078733 ; Core 1 CPU usage id number
led03_value_max=100.000000 ; 100 % CPU usage
led03_value_min=50.000000 ; 50 % CPU usage
led04_order=5
led04_smooth=7
led04_id_value=2741078733 ; Core 1 CPU usage id number
led04_value_max=50.000000 ; 50 % CPU usage
led04_value_min=0.000000 ; 0 % CPU usage

Where do the id numbers come from? 1st, add the screen included in this post. After restarting CC2, open the cc2_perfmon.ini file located in the C:\Program Files\CrystalControl2 directory. You will find some lines of text, similar to the following:

[perf04]
id=2741078733
full_name="\\Processor(0)\\% Processor Time"
precision=2
multiplier=1.000000

[perf05]
id=2213530968
full_name="\\Processor(1)\\% Processor Time"
precision=2
multiplier=1.000000

Note and record the associated id numbers. Open the lcd_635.ini file located in the C:\Program Files\CrystalControl2 directory. Copy the led example text to the end of this file. Replace my id numbers with the ones you found in your cc2_perfmon.ini file.

Save the file, restart CC2 and you should now have CPU usage showing on the LED's.

Hi, would it be possible to have this work for the 631 model? I have a e6700 dual core and was thinking maybe have it just show core 1 and core 2 in the 631 ? It should fit I hope.

thanks

What is the fastest CPU/processor available as far as dual and quad core? This would be for a desktop but I am curious to the fastest cpu for a laptop as well.
