    I have the new coolmon, and the entries in there.

    in any event, you should be able to paste this to the registry entries section in the coolmon control panel

    first, right click on the coolmon in your tray...

    next, hit displayed items

    just double click whatever you want coolmon to monitor.

    I just erase the registry enties manually when I want to eliminate items.

    next, rightclick again on the icon, hit transparent

    next hit fonts


    change the font, the font size, the color of the text, and make the backround transeparent

    I only monitor cpu temperature, ram use, page file and threads, so I added spaces in between each value.

    I'm using the taskmanager for my cpu usage, so that's not in my coolmon

    my text color is yellow,
    font size is 10,
    font is california fb,
    font style is bold italic, and
    backround is transeparent....

    jj...that's a great post. Edit: Don't Use My Real Name On The Forum, thanks :D

    I would try a loud colr for the fonts, and a transeparent backtound

    if your backround is black, I'd try yellow or red fonts, etc


    whoever has coolmon, if you like any of the items on jj's coolmpn, you can cut and paste the registry entries, if you can't find the settings you're looking for

    also, the new beta has a coupla glitches;

    some of the values will get cut off on your monitor if the backround is transeparent...a quick fix is to add a space at the end of the registry entry, then hit apply...on my pagefi
