NVidia 8800 Animated- use with Everest

OK, be gentle with me. :) This is my first screen. Nothing fancy on the monitoring side. You'll need to use Everest, as RivaTuner seems to non-fuctional at the moment.

This is for a CF635 20x4.


I animated an NVidia 8800 with a spinning fan. It looks pretty nice in the 635 unit. If you currently have a working screen for video card monitoring, then you could always just add the GIF if you like it.


Author: Crystalmancer

Screen zip file: nvidia_8800.zip

Install Instructions:

Copy the gif file to C:\gifs.

Copy the screens out of the zip into the: C:\Program Files\CrystalControl2\cc2-config\screens directory, add them to your module.

Included are 20x4 screen files.

You will need to have Everest installed and running. Get it here: <A href="http://www.lavalys.com/" target=_blank>http://www.lavalys.com/. You might have to have the registered version to be able to output Everest data to CC2. In order to set up Everest to do this, do the following:

File => Preferances.=> External Applications. Check the Box: "Enable writing sensor values to WMI". For convenience, I use the "Select All" option so that the values written to the WMI remain constant. Click on the OK button and you are ready to go.

Also, since different systems will most likely have different output data, you will probably have to change the Everest WMI values to match your system.

Development thread: N/A.

I am putting together several more animated screens that I have not seen in the library. ;)

Very nice. You've done something that I have never thought of doing.

hmmm. Now I will have to rethink some of older gifs and create some combined gifs similar to this one.

Good job!

Thanx JC. Your GIFs were my inspiration. :)

I'll probably post another 3 or 4 tonight.
