    MBM5 Intergration?

    Why isnt this a popular feature in these frontends. I only really check RR fourm for MBM5 but I am guessing theres no support for this in the other front ends. couldnt someone create a skin that pulls data from MBM5 into the front end?

    Liquid Smoke skin. Or modify a current skin. It is pretty easy I did it.

    Not sure if the search was completely necessary. I know how to find what I am looking for. My post was mainly a piont as to why people dont intergrate this feature in there frontends or skins. I use LS but would like to see it in more often. Maybe if we speak about it more new skins will have it.

    Not all MB's used in carputers have support of mbm5 since the development of it ended some time ago and thus it will look awful with text like CPU: -- or Case: -- text in the skin for those who cant use that feature.

    A simple toggle to turn off the feature could be implemented so thats a poor excuse. Also, all you have to do is match your pc's monitoring chipset to an older motherboard that has the same one. This is my second Carpc and both had a winbond chipset that I was able to find on a older system in MBM. You can easly find this out using PCwizard2005. Also, PCW2005 gives you this data and it automatically detects your monitoring chipset. I am sure youcan extract the data from there as well.

    okay, since you like this "feature" so much, why don't YOU make a skin for it instead of whining like a ***** why no one seems to care.

    That's what I said in my post. He can just do it himself. I found it not to be hard. I edited the LS skin myself before he updated it.

    Look here Ls 3.0 Very simple but it worked.

    ALRIGHT! I got the point, Do it myself if I want it. Didnt realize it was that simple plus I found support for it on RR's website that I didnt know existed, AND I dont need to be called a whining ***** b8bboi, ***!
