   AgaueEye provides integrated mode, that's mean if you are developer, you can write few code to put your data into overlay, that will let your data showing in game, the steps is very simple, write a http server and put data out, AgaueEye will pull the data when need.

you can Download the Host Code sample to see how it working.


Notification System can alter you when condition is on, you can set the limit of CPU/GPU Load/Temperature, once the load or temperature reach the limit, AgaueEye will pop-up notification window to remind you.

the settings is simple, but include some ideas, basically, the AgaueEye has be design as transparency tool, that's mean we try everything to avoid disturbing user if don't need, so notification has a Alter Period option, same notification only trigger once of the period, in default is 5 mins, it's mean if your CPU over 80%, it will notify, but next time notify will happen after 5 mins.

click the notifiaction window or click bell icon from main window, you can see all notification messages.

we also list top apps of each message to help you figure out the reason, if you need skip the notification for some app, just add it to exclude apps, next time will skip notifation if top app is in exclude app list.

ASUS Aura support can integrated with ASUS Aura enabled motherboard, you can see the ASUS Aura section in the setting window,
for now, we support 3 mode, CPU Load、GPU Load、and Smart, just choose 2 colors, AgaueEye will control the LED of motherboard, the Smart Mode will use CPU Load in normal, and Quality algorithm in gaming, we still plan to add more effects in future.

PS: because the SDK limit or something we don't know, you must install ASUS Aura software and change the lighting into fixed colors, then AgaueEye can control it.
