MBM Screens

I have some screens for MBM. If anyone is interested, let me know.

I have them for the 631 and for the 634.

You would have to edit them for your specific id's.

There is directory under CC2 named mbm-ini-gen. Run the mbm_ini_creator.exe file. This will create a .ini file for you (you must have MBM installed and running when you do this). If I remember correctly, you have to rename it to cc2_mbm.ini. Just make the file is called cc2_mbm.ini, at least. Move it your Crystalcontrol2\cc2-service directory. Part of the file that I created when I had MBM installed is as follows:

[sensor00]
comment="Temp Sensor 1 - Case"
name_id=1213913833
value_id=1895855
min_id=2748208265
max_id=689454350

[sensor01]
comment="Temp Sensor 2 - CPU"
name_id=4055797019
value_id=2508810313
min_id=848618958
max_id=42943802

[sensor02]
comment="Temp Sensor 3 - Sensor 3"
name_id=2780136986
value_id=3044718348
min_id=2621479887
max_id=1388419889


Note your name_id values. You will have to edit your (my) screen files to put in your name_id values. You may have to experiment with your names (i.e., CPU) and the name_id values to make sure you have them matched correctly.

That should be it.

If you still have problems, let me know. I may end up having to reinstall MBM and going thru the process (in case I missed any steps!).

I will have to reinstall MBM and go thru the sequence. I will get back to you later.

OK....

1. Run the program mbm_ini_creator.exe in the mbm_ini_creator directory. DO THIS ONCE, ONLY!!!

2. This creates a file in this directory called data_mbm.ini. Rename it to cc2_mbm.ini.

3. Edit this file. Change as follows:

From:

[sensor0] WRONG!
comment=Temp Sensor 1 - Case
name_id=2409939857
value_id=25089146
min_id=2609587134
max_id=2672310381
[sensor1] WRONG!
comment=Temp Sensor 2 - CPU
name_id=815027244
value_id=3842238949
min_id=1369409882
max_id=4009388205

To:

[sensor00] CORRECT!
comment=Temp Sensor 1 - Case
name_id=2409939857
value_id=25089146
min_id=2609587134
max_id=2672310381
[sensor01] CORRECT!
comment=Temp Sensor 2 - CPU
name_id=815027244
value_id=3842238949
min_id=1369409882
max_id=4009388205

4. Save the file and note the value_id #'s. Move the file to the cc2-service directory.

5. Edit the jc_mbm_Temps.2002 (or .2004 file). and change the id=xxxxxxx to the ones in your specific cc2_mbm.ini file. You may have to experiment to determine which sensor is which...

6. Save the file and add the screen in CC2. You should have actual temps displayed now.

Hopefully, this explains everything. If not, post here and I will try to fix it. Upload your .ini file and screen file!!!

Do you have to delete the entries labeled [sensor32], [sensor34], [sensor35], [sensor36], [sensor48], [sensor64] and everything else below them leaving only [sensor00] and [sensor01] ?

You don't have to.

CC2 simply has a bug that named the sensors 00 to 09; 0 to 9

The other entries simply refer to other temp and voltages sensors.

on another matter... I would prefer to use speedfan as I am sure in the future it will be able to read my graphic card temps. At the moment i am using mbm and rivatuner (with the 631 rivatuner screen)

my problem is that my motherboard handles my fan speeds for me and does it very well. If i run speedfan it runs my fans at 100%, is there any way to tell speedfan to leave my fans at the speed they are currently running?

i know this isn't speefan support but just wondered if an obviously clever chap like yourself knows...

worked a treat changing the 0 to 00

also the id you need to use is value id not name id

cheers for the help

You might try Reider. I don't the fan speed options myself.

However, on my MB, you can disable fan speed control. You might check your MB Bios to see if you can disable and then use Speedfan.

For some reason I cant get it to display the CPU and case temp right. It shows my case temp where the CPU temp is supposed to be displayed it shows [E01] next to MB :/

Do you mind checking what's wrong?

Ok,

First, switch the value_id's for MB and Case. I am not sure how the comments are generated, but they may not be correct. This should get your case temp aligned with the "MB:" name in the screen file.

Regarding your CPU temp, I am not exactly sure what is going on. You have copied the value_id correctly. It may be possible that the you need to use the Sensor64 value id:confused:

Try it and see what value you get.
