New to 2.2.2 from 2.2.1.03b
- Modified layout, regions and other GUI portions of the main screen
- Changed some terms on main interface to use common terms (Hard drive instead of HDD, Memory instead of Dimm, etc..)
- Added the "Highest Temp" information, this will record the highest temp during the application run time. This setting resets after the application is closed.
- Added a reset button for the "Highest Temp" information, this will also do a sensor read and refresh the gui.
- "Use white background for tray icon" no longer requires an application restart
- Application hang's after resuming from hibernation, (very rare occurance) fixed.
- "Highest Temp" information will reset if you change your option to display a different a different temp format (i.e. from C to F, or F to C.)
- Tray icon looks like poop if no sensors are being displayed.
- If you are not using a 9300/xps2/xps170, you will have a 4-5c difference in GPU temp, your temp will read higher then the actual temp. This was adjusted due to improper reports from the GPU sensor in the 9300/xps2/xps170(To be fixed in a later revision)
- by default Windows will attempt to load both i8kfangui and i9kfangui, you will need to change this in Windows.. see the install notes below
Install i8kfangui 2.2 - http://www.diefer.de/i8kfan/
Download I9kfangui http://www.mckenziedev.com/ - Goto the Downloads area
-- > MIRROR 1: http://rapidshare.de/files/6400357/i9kfangui.exe.html
Make sure that i8kfangui is closed
Copy the i9kfangui to your i8kfangui installation folder, double click to run. (you can actually put the file anywhere you like, it doesn't matter)
Method 1: Use msconfig to remove the i8kfangui entry from loading
YOU WILL NEED TO REMOVE I8kfangui from loading with windows, otherwise it will tell you there is a conflict.
There's 2 ways to fix this..
1) use msconfig, uncheck the startup for i8kfangui
2) Edit the registry, remove the key that's loading i8kfangui
CLOSE ALL OPEN APPLICATIONS
1) from the Windows Start menu, choose Run
2) type in "msconfig" (without the quotes) and press the enter key
3) click on the startup tab, and uncheck the "I8kfangui" entry
4) Press the "OK" button
5) choose the option to "Restart" now
Method 2: Edit the registry startup values.
!!WARNING!!: If you don't know what the registry is or how it works, DO NOT USE THIS.
CLOSE ALL OPEN APPLICATIONS
Start > Run > type in "regedit" (without the quotes) and press enter.
1) First things first.. make a backup of the registry (always a good idea)
- scroll to the very top of the left navigation portion of the registry editor, click on the "My Computer" name
- From the "File" menu, choose "Export"
- Pick a location to save the file, name it "myregistry" and press the save button
2) Remove the key
Browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
Remove the "i8kfangui" entry
I8kfangui must be installed first.
The only registry change is so that I8kfangui doesn't try to load on startup. No other registry changes are required. If your using the msconfig method to remove I8kfangui from startup, you DO NOT need to modify the registy, that's what msconfig does for you.
[b]Coming in the next version - UPDATE 12/15/05- these items will be in Version 2.3 spec's.
- Automatically modify the startup registry key so that I8kfangui doesn't attempt to load with i9kfangui.
- Change labels in options to match GUI interface changes
- Fix Highest Temp reset after temp display type change
- Add temp check and force controllabe fans to high in the event of an overheat situation, reguardless of user application settings.
- Add option to force fan speed resets on an interval basis, this is a workaround to some new bios versions that will slow the fans back down.
- Additional icon changes so the tray icon doesn't look like poop if no sensors are being displayed.
