Here is a plug-in that allows you to put EVGA Precision X hardware monitoring information into the Rainmeter customizable resource meter.

Installation:
  1. Download the following zip file and extract it to your "Documents\Rainmeter\Skins" folder.
  2. Copy the appropriate plugin for your computer's architecture from your "Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\EVGAPrecision\plugin\<x86 or x64>\EVGAPrecision.dll" to the "C:\Program Files\Rainmeter\Plugins" folder.
  3. Enable one of the included skins in the rainmeter options - use the EVGAPrecision skin for single graphics cards, or EVGAPrecisionDual for SLI/CrossFire setups.

To use this plugin for data in a custom skin, please do the following:

  1. Create a measure using one of the following formats:
    • DataSource - specify the measure using the name of the monitor for the DataSource parameter.  This name should match exactly what is shown in the EVGA Precision X monitoring graphs.  Here is an example for framerate:
      [MeasureEVGAPrecisionFramerate]      
      Measure=Plugin
      Plugin=Plugins\EVGAPrecision.dll
      DataSource=Framerate
      MinValue=0
      MaxValue=200
    • GPU/SourceId - specify the measure using the GPU index and SourceId.  The GPU parameter is the index of your video card starting at 0. If you only have one graphics card, this value will always be 0. Users with multiple cards can use 0, 1, etc to query the respective cards.  The SourceId is the decimal equivalent of the hex value listed in the EVGA Precision SDK (EPHMShreadMemory.h).  This method is prefered to the previous method as it will work for both single and multi card systems.  Here is an example for GPU Usage:
      [MeasureEVGAPrecisionGPU0Usage]      
      Measure=Plugin
      Plugin=Plugins\EVGAPrecision.dll
      GPU=0
      SourceId=48
      MinValue=0
      MaxValue=100
    • GPU/GPUDescriptor - The GPU parameter is the index of your video card starting at 0. If you only have one graphics card, this value will always be 0. Users with multiple cards can use 0, 1, etc to query the respective cards.  The GpuDescriptor parameter dictates what data you want to return for that particular card. The valid values are listed below in blue, along with some sample data that was returned.
      Family:  GF116
      DisplayName:  GeForce GTX 550 Ti
      Driver:  301.42
      BIOS:  70.26.18.00.00
      Memory:  1024
      GpuId:  VEN_10DE&DEV_1244&SUBSYS_26101462&REV_A1&BUS_2&DEV_0&FN_0
      VendorId:  10DE
      DeviceId:  1244
      SubSystem:  26101462
      Revision:  A1
      Bus:  2
      DeviceNum:  0
      FunctionNum:  0
      For example, you would use this measure to return the display name of the primary graphics card (simply change the GPU=0 to GPU=1 to get the name of the 2nd card in the system):
      [MeasureEVGAPrecisionGPU0DisplayName]      
      Measure=Plugin
      Plugin=Plugins\EVGAPrecision.dll
      GPU=0
      GPUDescriptor=DisplayName
      UpdateDivider=3600
  2. Create a meter that uses the measure defined in step 1.  Here is an example to display the framerate text value:
    [MeterEVGAPrecisionFamerate]      
    Meter=String
    MeasureName=MeasureEVGAPrecisionFramerate
    X=[MeasureLeftText]
    Y=[MeasureTopGraph]
    Text="Framerate: %1"
    NumOfDecimals=1
    MeterStyle=EVGAPrecisionStyle

Please review the included skins for examples on creating these measures.  Also, please review the documentation on the Rainmeter site for creating skins: 

Please let me know if you have any questions or issues.  Special thanks to NoirNL(Emiel) for requesting this plugin.

Thanks,
Nick

    the download link seems to be down

    I just created my account yesterday, so EVGA won't let me post a URL link for 5 days.  So you will need to copy/paste this into your web browser address:
    rivatuner.doomdealer.com-precision-rainmeter-EVGAPrecision.zip
    and then change the 3 '-' into '/'.  The site is up, I just downloaded it again to make sure.
     
    I'll edit my post in 4 more days so there will be a clickable URL.
     
    If you still have issues, send me a PM with an email address and I'll send you the link.

    Do you still have this plugin available? This seems to be the only thread on the entirety of the internets with a PrecisionX plugin for Rainmeter.

    Thanks for answering NoirNL.
     
    Initially I thought I just needed to wait the 5 days to create a URL in a post......but I also need 10 posts first too!  So I'll make the link clickable once I can do so.
     
    Good news is this reply got me 1 post closer to the 10 required

    Hi,
     
    Running PrecisionX 3.0.3 with Rainmeter 2.3.3 on Windows 7x64 using the dual GPU skin included shows FPS perfectly fine for me with 2 x GTX550Ti (as long as 3D app is the active window, when it looses focus then PrecisionX shows 0FPS, so the rainmeter skin does too).
     
    Can you post your versions and the portion of the skin you are using for FPS and I'll take a better look?
     
    Thanks,
    Nick

    Nope.  I just updated to 3.0.4 and 2.4 and everything is still fine.
     
    Do you get FPS when using the skin included in the .zip?

    The driver should have nothing to do with.  I get the value direct from Precision, so as long as it is being reported there then the issues is with the skin or plugin.

    I'm sorry, but until you validate the default skin to rule out the plugin and post code from your skin, there is nothing else I can do.

    Hello stangowner,

    I have put the link in your OP.  Thanks for sharing.

    Rob

    Thanks Rob, I really appreciate it!  One minor thing, the URL has an extra character at the end, so it is resulting in a 404 not found.  Can you edit it again to get rid of the extra '%C2%A0' after the '.zip'?
     
    Thanks!

    I'm getting the same results using OC Scanner 2.2.2.  Seems that PrecisionX is not recognizing that application and reporting FPS for it.  It is listed in the profile list in EVGA OSD Server to disable application detection.  So because PrecisionX is not reporting it, neither is this plugin and Rainmeter.  Please try a different 3D application that PrecisionX will display the FPS for (at bottom of the PrecisionX screen after you select "Frame Rate Target" on the bottom left).  If it is displayed there, it should be displayed in Rainmeter.
     
    Thanks,
    Nick

    Sure, no problem.  There is a ton of benchmarks out there.  You can use FurMark (I think latest is 1.10.3).  That will trigger FPS in PrecisionX and is free.

    Let me try to update the link now to get rid of that space.  I think this post will get me past my limit.
     
    EDIT:  Yup, I was finally able to edit it.  It is fine now.

    Just a heads up
     
    Running Rainmeter with Precision -and- then using GPUz can be dangerous and lead to issues.
     
    This is because of KNOWN conflicts between the programs
    This can be made MUCH worse, if you happen to be using the SpeedFan application that Rainmeter uses.
     
    What we are talking about is corruption in the Precision files and by extension into the Nvidia driver itself. The addition of SpeedFan into that, can cause issues like incorrect temps, boost, clock cycle and fan speed issues.
    Not to mention ALL kinds of issues when playing games
     
    I post this only to help users be informed of KNOWN issues
    And to make them aware that using such programs may cause issues that are "software" based.
     
    At the current time, it is possible to have serious issues with just Precision alone (due to improper use/error) and the current Nvidia driversets. Adding anything on top of a broken Precision would be quite problematic...
     
    Heads up
     
    If you experience such issues, the "software's" must be -completely- uninstalled
    *Critical: when uninstalling Precision, you MUST answer NO when asked to save data and profiles. 
    -->AND a reboot done (to remove the injectors from the driver)
    After the reboot is done, then a Custom/Clean install will be needed to restore the driver to its original state.

    Is there any other way then? Is there any way to link the clock speeds into rainmeter and rid of gpu-z?
    *Edit - Didn't read where Precision alone is a problem. Switching to MSI Afterburner =/

    Is there any other way then? Is there any way to link the clock speeds into rainmeter and rid of gpu-z?
    *Edit - Didn't read where Precision alone is a problem. Switching to MSI Afterburner =/

     
    Precision and Afterburner are are basically the "same" program written by Unwinder.
    -->Problems that effect one PX or AB are quite likely to effect the other.
     
    I am NOT trying to keep people from using these programs, simply to point out that videocard and Nvidia driver -Behavior- should NOT be taken for granted when using these programs.
     
    Just be careful and understand you videocard is not broken if your having issues when running these programs.
    You should be aware of the possible issues and how to recover
     
    If your having issues with the programs themselves or in games...
    Uninstall RainMeter
    Reboot once
    Uninstall SpeedFan
    Reboot once
    *do NOT use GPUz (this program is KNOWN to cause issues with the others running)
    Uninstall Precision/Afterburner (and do NOT save profile/data)
    Do a REBOOT to clear the Nvidia driver after uninstalling PX/AB   
    Reinstall the driver (after a reboot) using Custom mode w/clean install checked to complete the recovery

    Does anyone have an addon for the legacy version (2.1.2) instead of precision x (3.04)? I can't use prevision x because it is buggy with my gpu. Thanks.
