      Thank you for the report. There has been a problem reading OpenHardwareMonitor.config files from previous version with 0.5.0 Beta. I have just released a new version to fix this problem.

    Thank you for the update – the extra customization (background) is much appreciated… Would be nice to be able to control the spacing and text as well :))

    Great update, but it still doesn’t not support my Asus Rampage IV Extreme fully. I can’t see my SSD and HDD, yet.
