Aura Creator - Smart Effect "by GPU temperature" not working as intended

Level 7
I have two Smart filters enabled...

  • Smart by CPU temperature - includes each available Memory component
  • Smart by GPU temperature - includes the GPU component

I noticed while gaming that my memory and GPU always change colors at the exact same time. I double checked the layers and verified that I have the correct components selected, and that the correct filters were selected. I gave them distinct color profiles to visibly confirm on the hardware as well.

After verifying that everything was properly configured I began monitoring both the GPU and CPU temperatures. I discovered that when the CPU temperature reaches the first threshold, both Smart effects were triggering. If the GPU temperature reached the threshold, nothing happened. It seems that the Aura Creator is applying the CPU temperature to the GPU temperature effect as well.
