Nice work, but I think the CPU and GPu temps are not correct, and the weather is not working. 
Any chance of a updated version?

Hey, I added a GPU graph and made the GPU usage/temp CPU usage/temp work only with MSI Afterburner, can I send this to you? You might find it useful, I've seen some users asking for a GPU graph, the MSI AB compatibility is an extra I personally needed :P

Hey, can you upload   your version here? MSI AB is a good extra.

Hi! I've been using SysDash for a while and was looking exactly for something to substitute SpeedFan with MSI AB! Would you mind sharing your code with me, and how to apply it? Thanks in advance!

Hi just wondering how I could add in the clock speeds under the temps for both cpu and gpu

Nm I managed to use a copy of the temp sensors and changed the id's to the clock ones and it has worked for me. The whole skin is definitely something I have been wanting as I can have the exact info I want where I can easily see it without having to use a few different programs, as most do have the right things I want next to each other so have to have a couple open.

Hi, is possible to change the Dash's color? *Example, from blue to oragne* thanks.

Hands down the BEST sidebar skin ever! There are so many nice sidebars, but this one is at the very top.

Hi!

I love this skin so much! Is there any chance you include an option for GPU usage? Like a percentage with the CPU, you could also add VRAM too. I'd love it even more to be honest :D
Also weather isn't working for me ("Budapest, Hungary" in settings)

Would be cool if it wouldn't use SpeedFan, because it doesn't show the correct temps.

An update should come in the next few days which switches from SpeedFan to HWiNFO thanks to the help of dkolb (github.com/dkolb).

To keep on the newest information, go to Github and watch the Repo to get informed when i'll make changes.

Really like it dude, sleek and nice looking. I would suggest you switch monitor since speedfan does not show reliable CPU temps. HWiNFO64 or Openhardwaremonitor are my favorites.

Edit: You can set an offset in SpeedFan to get a more accurate reading (Configure>Advanced) for those interested

Weather is broken. Cannot fetch weather. Can you fix this please? Alternatively, how can we fix it ourselves? Thanks!

Weather no longer works

Yahoo has changed the api address, what can you do to make the weather work again?

I'm so glad I found this! My new favourite Rainmeter skin. The style is excellent

Hi! I have a question. Can I change the graph color? Thank you for your answer...

Hi Marco! You have done a great skin. Any chance to get network traffic like a chart?

Hi! this is a simple and cool skin and I install it right away. I've found a setting in your skin to resize skin scale and width but I cannot drag the bar, don't know why that happened. Since I'm new to rainmeter I want to know is there a guide to resize your skin?

I think it should use OpenHardwareMonitor instead of Speedfan, Speedfan causes a BSOD on my computer, and VLC instead of Windows Media Player because who actually uses Windows Media Player?

Looks great and works well, only issue is that it is quite resource intensive for a rainmeter plugin (uses up to 6% of my i7-4790K when idling).

This is just gorgeous! So clean and neat and customizable, i love it! Thank you so much for this! ^_^
I encountered one issue: the GPU temp is not being displayed correctly. It stays at 0. CPU temp is displayed correct right away. When opening speedfan, in readings the GPU fan is detected (it is also liquid cooled), listed and displayed with correct RPM and Temp. But in congifure it does not look like in the guide. I tried values 1-11 without any effect. No idea what causes this. 

Also: would it be possible to implement 1 row with file/program/weblinks buttons (e.g. steam/gog/uplay _ opera/discord/windows explorer) ?

EDIT: got it to work. Refreshed a few times in a row and Boom! GPU temperature is displayed now!
