"Does what it ways it will do"

November 16, 2011  |  By Mergatroid Mania

 |  Version: SpeedFan Temperature Monitor 6.1

Pros

As someone else mentioned it's a front end for speedfan.

Cons

Have to run speed fan plus Yahoo widget software plus this widget. Too much software for the small benefit you get from this widget. You're better off using a Windows 7 widget.

Summary

Meh. I'm not using it any more, added software does not justify the benefits.
Note: If you can't download it, can't unzip it, can't figure out how to use it then maybe you should get your little sister to take care of your computer.

"It is okay but ..."

June 18, 2011  |  By rmmccoy

 |  Version: SpeedFan Temperature Monitor 6.1

Pros

It is small and you can plant it anywhere. So far, it appears to linking to Speedfan just fine.

Cons

I prefer the temp in F, which can get from Speedfan but the gadget only shows C. The gadget doesn't have any title on it. Sure, I know it links back to Speedfan but I feel like the gadget should have a title linking back.

Summary

Overall, I say this gadget is maybe two and half stars.

"Does what it says"

December 02, 2009  |  By markandcheryl

 |  Version: SpeedFan Temperature Monitor 6.1

Pros

monitors core temps and you can custom set the settings. Not too difficalt to understand for an experienced user. Fine to use on a laptop but set the temp at around 70c not default as the default will be way too high.

Cons

Not for inexperienced users, unless you KNOW how to download, unzip and install properly without messing up pc settings dont touch anything other than default.
The only major con I can see off is that I have to manually restart it on start up.

Summary

A good little program, does what I want it to do, which is stop my laptop from overheating, so far its switched the pc off at the temp I have asked and warned me of a problem before that point. Happy with the program but definately not for the uninitiated because they could seriously damage their pc.

"Excellent software. Saved my hard drives"

February 14, 2009  |  By a5a49708

 |  Version: SpeedFan Temperature Monitor 6.1

Pros

It's very easy to install, easy to use, very informative, and uses the internet to compare your hard drive statistics with others of the same model. If your fans are hooked up properly, you can adjust cooling to cpu usage.

Cons

No cons to report

Summary

After running a check of my hard drives, an advisory on one drive said that I had an issue that was probably a loose connection. On checking the drives, I located the loose cable into the back of the hard drive and replaced the cable. A rescan showed 98% performance.
Excellent way to keep track of drive temperatures. Hot drives break down very quickly or begin to skip. This software gives you total access to the SMART data for your drives, CPU, and video card.

"Couldn't get it to work."

August 29, 2008  |  By Lori Pringle

 |  Version: SpeedFan Temperature Monitor 6.1

Pros

Nothing...

Cons

Couldn't get it to work,
No instructions - I've never used a Yahoo "Widget" before, so I have no idea what I'm supposed to do with it.

Summary

Maybe it works, maybe it doesn't. I wouldn't know, because there are no instructions, and even with the handy bit of help from the other person who mentioned there are no instructions, I still don't know what to do with a "widget", and I'm not even a noobie. Some detailed instructions would be nice.

"actually, this is pretty good - it is a customisable front end to Speedfan. "

January 05, 2008  |  By gurns

 |  Version: SpeedFan Temperature Monitor 6.1

Pros

What you need to do, although it's not explained, is download two additional (free) applications:

- the Yahoo widget engine

- Speedfan 4.33

You need to install both applications and run this from the widget engine.

I'm not permitted to add links, so if you want to know more just check out check out softpedia and the publisher's page in yahoo widgets for more detailed instructions.

Once you've installed the additional apps, it does what it says!

Cons

No installation instructions!
