I've made my own little modified version of the HW plugin, but am having an issue with getting the Bar Meter to work with my AIO since the "Number" it returns and the "String" are two very different things.

I need it to read the RPM in order to correspond to the value range I assigned it, but it seems to just read the first number...., please see below.

Any assistance would be welcome!
Don't use the "pretty" measures to get numeric values. These return text like "2,345 RPM", so use them only for showing formatted output. Instead, use measures that get the "raw" values from the "ValueRawN" registry keys, like the [MeasureGPUTempValueRaw] measure does. These return plain numbers, which you can use as input to the bar meters and other meters that require numeric input.

I will remember this for next time! The next solution was "cleaner" for my level of understanding. Thank you!

"MeasureName=MeasureGPUFanValueRaw" made it do exactly as needed. Thank you for the input and pointing me in the right direction, and the response was so fast!
