Hey All!

As you've probably seen posted around Alex van Kaam, the creator of Motherboard Monitor (MBM5) has called it quits. He has been providing this great utility free of charge with constant updates & development for 7 1/2 years. Whether you have used MBM5 or not this guy still deserves a respectful send-off, so take a few seconds out of your day.

Regards, Balrog

Indeed it is a sad moment for overclockers. For as long as I can remember MBM has been the defacto standard for monitoring temperatures and keeping our machines safe.

My highest regards to Alex, for he has done a great service to the community.
