Mother Board Monitor 5

3 posts in this topic

Is there anyone that knows how to intercept the temps, and store them to variables? I need it for my LCD project.

Is there a way to use dllcalls or coms? I couldn't find any help on google or on the forums.

Another added question, how do you all figure out a .dll's dll-structure?

Dim $pdwCoreTemp
Dim $pdwAmbientTemp
Dim $pdwUpperLimit
$nWindowsMonitorNumber = 1

$dll = DllOpen("nvcpl.dll")

$result = DllCall($dll,"int", "NvCplGetThermalSettings", "int",$nWindowsMonitorNumber, "long_ptr", $pdwCoreTemp, "long_ptr", $pdwAmbientTemp, "long_ptr", $pdwUpperLimit)
$Number = StringReplace($result[2], "|", @CRLF)

$Temp = $Number * 1.8 + 32
MsgBox(4096, "Test",$Temp)

DllClose($dll)

I found the .dll structure so I could do that, I can't do anything with Mbm5 because no one has a .dll structure.

Is there anyway someone could help me with this source? This is MBM5 source, I wanted to know how to use auto's 'com' system to read sensor temps.
