Its mostly magic. Also, we have a lightweight software package to install, that runs in the background letting the CompuTach know information it needs to display on the gauge.
Absolutely! Set your watch light (yellow) and warning light (red) indicators for RAM, ping speed, and CPU temperature. You can also reference a specific ip address to ping for specific games.
We recognize all colors on the RGB spectrum (Red, Green, Blue). Use a site like this one to pick your color, then enter the values by clicking the CompuTach logo in your system tray.
The CompuTach software runs on Windows 7, 8, and 10. If we reach $30,000 in our Kickstarter goals, we will be adding support for Macintosh. Let us know if you are a Linux user who would like to use the CompuTach.
The CompuTach will light up RED when CPU usage goes over 80% usage. This provides an even stronger visual cue to slow the f#@k down.
