    Speedfan software question.


    Is this any good?
    SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer

    I want to download and play with it, but not until I hear from someone who has tried it.

    Thank you.

    All the fan settings should be in your BIOS on the H/W Monitor tab...

    Open Hardware Monitor is a better solution to what you are asking. It just works better.

    My experience with Speedfan left me a bit wanting. It didn't read all of my sensors because it is a few years old, and fan control was next to impossible on my motherboard. I was using Speedfan because it was feeding a remote status display, but I finally gave up because the temperatures in Speedfan kept moving around and being just plain wrong.

    Speedfan is a nice idea, I just don't think it was up to my expectations. Your mileage may vary.

    Speedfan is good if your motherboard comes with bad fan control for the fans or the software it has is bad or the bios fan control features are bad which are all common on older boards.

    I have a few computers that need speedfan because the inbuilt monitoring does not work that good.

    it is all dependent on whether you need something like this or not otherwise there is no point using it. Sometimes it won't read sensors but that depends on how its all setup on the motherboard.

    The problem is my machine is basically just cobbled together and I don't really know how good the fan control might be.

    I'd been having problems from random reboots that I identified as being the result of overheating during browser use with lots of tabs open. I've tweaked some power settings and no recurrence for about a week.

    Mostly I want to keep tabs on what it's doing. Speccy has been useful but I would like more detail.

    I will try it and report back.
    Thanks to all. I will also try Open Hardware Monitor.

    Interesting. I'll look into it if I'm still having problems.
