[Suggestion] Different Update Rate Settings for Different Functions?

Would it be possible to have the facility to set different update rates for different elements of the monitoring system?
The reason I ask is because I have the update rate set to every two seconds as that's what I want for the processor temperature monitoring icon in the system tray.
However, it means that the program is also SMART checking my drives every two seconds as well, which seems unnecessary.
It would be much better if you could keep the temperature monitoring update frequency at two seconds, say, but have the drives checked say every couple of minutes.
At the moment it doesn't seem to be possible to have different settings for each function.
Thanks, Dave.

Such option (for SMART and EC sensors) is already present, check the sensor settings window.

Ah, thanks!
I assume it's the "Disk S.M.A.R.T. every x cycles" setting?
I didn't realise that it was a multiplier setting applied to the Global setting, not an absolute setting that you define!
So presumably if the Global setting is 2000ms, I need to put "60" in there if I want the disks to be checked every two minutes?
All makes sense now.
Cheers,
Dave.
