about Open Hardware Monitor and HWMonitor Jun 2015

I've been using this program for over 2 years now and my only issue is the very slow updates (which is not a real issue unless you have the latest hardware).
Other then that is an amazing little program; modular (unlike HWMonitor) and very light weight with all the proper options (start with windows minimized and so on).

Highly recommended.
