How do I change the temperature settings from Celsius to Fahrenheit?

This is within the software, when you look at the performance graphs and the overlay on your screen. Everything is Celsius

Thanks

That's because in computers, safe and dangerous temperature ranges are defined in centigrade, so there is absolutely no reason to use Fahrenheit.

Re: How do I change the temperature settings from Celsius to Fahrenheit?

Maybe where you live but I see no need to use the Celsius scale, here in America, where no one here uses it except as a number displayed right along side the Fahrenheit numbers.  People use the scale they are accustomed, to determine (mostly), if something is normal or out of spec/scale and if so, by how much.  Assuming that the scale YOU use means MORE than what someone in another part of the world uses is both useless and arrogant.  Almost all software that assumes Celsius is the default scale to use, at least, gives us the ability to change it to one we are more comfortable/familiar with.  Leaving out that feature alienates your audience and is like writing an owner's or user's manual and failing to include translations to the most widely used languages.

Re: How do I change the temperature settings from Celsius to Fahrenheit?

I agree.  I have seen other computer system software respect language and cultural differences regarding Measurement Systems.  An option to represent temperatures in the Fahrenheit scale rather than centigrade would take a tiny bit of entirely stable code.  However, if the Adrenaline versions for Windows 10 were built effectively they would first follow the Measurement System choice set in Windows 10, system settings and provide Fahrenheit scale if set to "US" and centigrade if set to "Metric".

Re: How do I change the temperature settings from Celsius to Fahrenheit?

While I agree it would be nice to have the option for those that don't want to use what is actually, the much easier to use metric system.

I am not sure you are speaking for all of America.

 

Only 3 countries in the world use Imperial measurement as a default, USA, Myanmar, and Liberia.

As you can see NO other major country. I am an Engineer, I have a good friend who is an architect and my wife is a surveyor. All of those today, right here in the USA measure with the metric system then provide conversions to Imperial as needed. However all three of us often convert the original metric number into Imperial for users down the line to use such as the contractors / design & build. So it is a big mix of both but hardly all vs the other. It has been this way for decades at this point. Some countries like us and the U.K. are a bit stuck in the middle with some things being measured one way more prevalently than the other. 

I don't think that black_zion‌ was inserting in any way that it ,or you, or anything is dumb for using Imperial measurement just that in computer circles, that most computer specs are in Metric and have been for about 30 years now. 

Again I agree it would be nice to have the option to simple use pull down menu to allow for personal preference. 

Options are alway great things!

One thing is for certain and while those who prefer Imperial because it is what they know. Metric is easier, much easier. Plus it is capable far more exact measurement.

Re: How do I change the temperature settings from Celsius to Fahrenheit?

English is the 3rd most prevalent language and a distant one to the top 2, Spanish number 2 and Mandarin Chinese number 1. 

Second no idea what 2-6 is and it's relevance beyond a sell serving rant. 

These are USER HELPING USER forums not help from AMD. @black_zion is one of the most helpful people in these forums and I have never seen this user be mean to anyone. For some reason you have taken it this way when it is not. None of us have the ability to change software features. We are not AMD employees. 

Your behavior and now attack on another user is uncalled for, and most definitely agains forum rules.  amdmatt‌  ray_m  please moderate this thread. 

What is not normal is your behavior toward another human being who was only trying to help you, and you for some reason took it as some attack on yourself and America as a whole. 

I am not even sure if there is not a way to change it in the software. A lot has changed in the 2020 version, and I still use the 2019 interface. 

You could ask AMD supports actual AMD employees here:  https://www.amd.com/en/support/contact-email-form

Re: How do I change the temperature settings from Celsius to Fahrenheit?

Until it is adopted, fully, it is callous to impose a standard on others.  Again, it's like requiring ALL countries to use English, just because we do.  No, in America, we embrace other cultures, and we HAVE adopted the Metric System, where it makes sense.  There is NO advantage to using Kilometers instead of Miles, Meters over Yards, or Centimeters over Inches, just because someone else wants us too or thinks they have a better way.  Our system has been in use and has been well established in our culture.  It may make sense use the Metric System when using beakers and test tubes, but there is a reason for the Imperial System.  It was invented as a system that ordinary people could readily understand and use, WITHOUT special equipment.  That makes sense too.

The inch is roughly the length of 1 segment of your index finger, King Henry I of England fixed the yard as the distance from his nose to the thumb of his out-stretched arm. However, the Yard originated in the Roman mille passuum, a thousand paces, or more precisely, a thousand strides.  Each pace consisted of five Roman feet, giving us a mile of 5,000 feet. Since the Roman foot (the pes) was smaller than today's foot, the Roman mile was about nine-tenths the length of our mile today.

So, you see, they were trying to so the same thing as the Metric System, it's just easier at this point.  Using this system, people didn't NEED to have a measuring device to determine distance, and people from all walks of life, from the rich and famous to lowly commoners could use the system without any formal training.  Science is VERY precise and disciplined, so the Metric System makes more sense there.  Regardless, we still use the Imperial System in America.  Until that is no longer true ... get over it.

Re: How do I change the temperature settings from Celsius to Fahrenheit?

I don't think anyone is really imposing anything on anyone. It is a measurement that is easily converted if not by a preference in an application, by countless other applications or with a search in your browser or today even asking Alexa etc....

Industries and businesses who deal with international trade have to use metric measurements because the rest of the world does. So US business in general already uses it. Plus as already noted pretty much all businesses where exacting measurement is required today uses Metric. 

It seems the general population of the US will resist forever. Being isolated in the world doesn’t seem to bother a chunk of all Americans. 

If you built anything today by those ancient standards you gave you would have a huge failure rate in building and nothing would line up. So not really relevant but I get where you were going. 

Lastly I don't have to get over anything as I don't have a problem with either system. Use whatever you wan't. You are the one that has some huge chip on your shoulder over people just trying to help you. Frankly the only place the things you have said are valid is in your own mind trying to prove relevance to a moot point that the world has long since moved on from. 

Obviously you have no interest in help from the community so as I advised before, talk to AMD: https://www.amd.com/en/support/contact-email-form

Re: How do I change the temperature settings from Celsius to Fahrenheit?

I haven't attacked ANYONE.  I am debating the case.  I think YOU are the one taking offense and arguing.  Nothing I have said here was meant in any mean way, nor was I condescending.  I think you need to check YOUR attitude.  We should ALL be adults here.  If you can't intelligently discuss topics, maybe you should step back for a while or reread my messages with NEW eyes.

The ONLY person I am feeling attacked by is YOU.  My QUESTION was about why the ability to change the format to monitor temperatures that "I use on a daily basis" was taken away.  Are you suggesting that "I am NOT WORTHY" of an opinion, or that the preferred way to monitor something is somehow antagonistic ???  How ridiculous and childish.  I will not argue with you any longer on whatever your triggering mechanism is.  I came here for an answer, and to add support for the system of measurement "I" use.  The Celsius scale means nothing to me.

I would think the vendor would want to play to their CUSTOMERS, rather than lose them.  Surely, the code difference is negligible.  I coded for over 20 years, and the effort would have take a few lines of code and maybe about 20 minutes of time to write the subroutine.  Is it too much to ask for a CUSTOMER to ask for a little consideration ???

I have supported AMD exclusively for graphics products for over 40 years.  I am a custom system builder, perform remote network, server and workstation monitoring and repair, am an MCSE, have been a Network Engineer for over 22 years and was a programmer for over 20+ years.  In all those years (since 1982), I turned 1,000's of my customers away from using alternative graphics adapters.  If it is NOT ALLOWED for a customer to ask a question, maybe I should rethink my dislike for NVidia.!!!

Re: How do I change the temperature settings from Celsius to Fahrenheit?

Really because you were speaking illy of another user before I posted anything. Nobody removed your right to an opinion. You go upset when I posed another. Not vice versa. I went out of my way to explain why that is the case.

Nobody not me or any other person tried to remover your right to get the simple code inserted.

No it is not too much to ask AMD for feature request. They even have links to that and often have surveys for it. As I already and very politely stated, we are users not AMD employees and I gave you the link of whom to contact. Here it is for you again: https://www.amd.com/en/support/contact-email-form 

Nobody ever said you can't ask questions again something you read into what was said that was never said.

I am sorry you don't see the tone of what you wrote as problematic. 

All of the things you are attributing as what I have said were never said or innuendoed. How you got there, only you have a clue to that. 

All I know is you have now once again crossed a line of calling other users names which is against forum rules.   

amdmatt  ray_m  please moderate this thread.amdmatt

As they say you can't please everyone.
