Rainmeter - Information Overload 1.0 by gluzer Rainmeter - Information Overload 1.0 by gluzer
================================== This skin is no longer supported. ==================================

Please find the new version located here…


Found Rainmeter and the SimplyNova Skin by Nova Sev and came down with a case of the "I WANT TO KNOW IT ALL!" syndrome...

So here it is Information Overload... A FULL System monitor for Rainmeter 3.0

I also have Time & Date from SimplyNova and Clock from Simple

You will need to install HWiNFO before using this skin, The Plugin for Rainmeter will install when you install the skin.

Background comes from HDWallpaper and is included in the package.

I Have broken it down into separate modules so that you can pick and choose what you want displayed.

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions!



Also forgot to add, that to use this skin you will need to install the HWiNFO Skin from stangowner…

it includes the utilities that you need to change the ID's and instructions on how to use it in general.


Please also let me know if anyone would like to see this all put into maybe a tabbed version for those that value every inch of their desktop space...

Will this work with Rainmeter 4.0/4.1? Will I still need to install HWiNFO?

I'm loving the version 2 of the skin, but I can't find the clock. Can you please link it.
gluzer Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2015
 Time & Date from SimplyNova and Clock from Simple

sorry dont have the direct links.
gluzer Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2015
For those of you that are still using this skin, I have come back to rainmeter and windows and have updated this skin to use the new HWiNFO ids.

the new skin is located here…

I'd like to get a tabbed version please!

Also, it has to be updated for the new version of HWiNFO:
here's a link for help:…

To all that are still experiencing problems with this skin while using the newest version of HWiNFO (as of this writing, I'm using v4.50-2400), you should review the new instructions here:….

I too had the same problem where my CPU, GPU and Mem info weren't displaying through this skin.  Once I updated my 'SYSTEM_CPU.ini', 'SYSTEM_GPU.ini', and 'SYSTEM_RAM.ini' with the new (additional) key/value information, my skin was working right as... well... rain!  

Just a hint... In the original skin, the sensors were looking for the 'HWiNFOID' value, however with the new HWiNFO (v4.5x), this one value now turns into four (4) values.  Sure it's a bit more work, but that's just the way it is.  Now you'll replace the 'HWiNFOID' value with 'HWiNFOSensorId', 'HWiNFOSensorInstance', 'HWiNFOEntryId', and 'HWiNFOType'.

What made this easy for me to update my 'Info Overload' skin is to download the HWiNFO skin (listed in the above link), and reversed engineer what it has in place.  Toy with that HWiNFO skin first and see how to get it to run on your machine.  Once you figure that out then you're homeward bound.

Hope this helps all of you who were also experiencing the CPU, GPU, Mem problem.   Keep on raining!

Got everything working so far now its just my ram. I have hwinfo64 4.46 installed and hwinfo shared memory viewer v 1.1.0 but when running the shared memory viewer my ram doesnt display. any help would help!
q3muyq3 Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2014
Great skin, but i need your help.
All sensors are ok, it displays the info for CPU, RAM, dives and network but not for gpu.

i dont know why. ¿Maybe beacause i have 2 gpu (Intel graphics and GTX 660) ? In this case, as you can see, in the label shows that selected gpu is Nvidia Geforce GTX 670, (But my gpu is GTX 660)…

Hi. Great skin.

But, the clock is not included. Where is it, or what skin is it from?

Thank you in advance.
xxxsaleensrxxx Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2014
Great skin! Now, I have an FX 8350, and i would like to have all 8 cores listed with corresponding frequencies instead of just 4, is there a way to do this? Ideally it would have just the core numbers instead of listing "Core 0" above the corresponding bar.. Not extremely familiar with Rainmeter code, any help would be greatly appreciated! 
gluzer Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2014
yes, should be fairly simple. I will look it over again and give some directions.
gluzer Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2014
Sorry for the lack of attention to the comments.

Here goes for the ones I missed lately...

Bacchus555 You should be able to copy the skin into a new folder and then edit the ID's for your intel card

PotatorOverLord The Background is linked in the description and the Clock and Time & Date come from SimplyNova and Simple Themes.

Birdie615 if you havent gotten it worked out yet give me a few more days, RL has me boged down hard right now with work and then I will take a look at my code again and give you the directions to add those additional 2 cores (or 4 if its an Intel CPU)

Darius-Hailstrom Glad your loving this.

Thanks again for everyone's comments, when life slows down for me I may start making these again.

Feel free to share and mod this skin as you see fit.
Darius-Hailstrom Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2014
Wow, nevermind. Overlooked the "Click Through" box. Absolutely loving this skin!!!!!!
Darius-Hailstrom Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2014
Hey, Im having trouble getting the modules unlocked. Any help? Love the skin though!
Birdie615 Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2014
love the theme! looks great with my current setup. only problem i'm having is, i am running a 6-core CPU and the default is for quad core. i have the script all written out correctly, but i always have issues with locations (X and Y). i would much appreciate if someone could help me out with adding 2 more cores to the script :) or even giving me a few pointers on how to do it. Much thanks, and great upload. 
PotatorOverLord Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2014  Student Digital Artist
and can you give me the link to the wallpaper please? ty
PotatorOverLord Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2014  Student Digital Artist
hey am i supposed to get the clock or does it come separate because i didnt get it
Bacchus555 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2014
Is there any way to show multiple graphics cards? I have both an Intel HD card and an NVIDIA card.
Shadefin Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2013
I have a slight problem, for some reason my GPU stats won't show (I have switched all codes in HWInfo rainmeter settings (I have ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670)
gluzer Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2014
Im not quite sure what the issue would be then, other than the card is not reporting correctly (you wont see any values in HWInfo tool). if you cant get it figured out let me know and I will see if I can think of something else.
psuraj Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2013
il liked the theme a lot i am unable to move them . i am a noob ..can you please make readme file. it would be of great help for everyone. thank you
gluzer Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2013
sorry for the delayed response but I think i may have left them locked. you can open rain meter and unlock them then you should be able to move them.

Great Skin!  Good Job!  I'm using it on my current setup [Link]

Thanks for sharing!
gluzer Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2013
Not a problem, glad you are enjoying it!
Falco9n Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2013
Thank you so much! Finally a skin that takes into account the fact that some people have more than 2 pc cores! 
gluzer Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2013
glad you like it!
brennanx1 Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2013
It isn't picking up my video card. It shows it in HWiNFO but not the rainmeter display.
brennanx1 Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2013
Nevermind, I had to change the ID's. All good now, great skin :)
gluzer Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2013
gluzer Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2013
You will need to use the skin from Stagowner so that you can see what your Video Cards ID# is. The link is in the discription. Once you have that number just edit the GPU portion with your Vid cards ID.
gluzer Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2013
Thanks guys glad everyone is enjoying, never thought it would get as many views or downloads!
