Editors' Review

SpeedFan helps you stay on top of your system's vital statistics, including temperature, fan speed, and others, to ensure that things are running smoothly. Aside from basic monitoring, this program enables users to troubleshoot issues and make adjustments to various systems.

Pros

Clear interface: This app's interface is nicely organized into sections that you can move through using the tabs across the top of the screen. Options here include Readings, which features stats about CPU Usage, Fans, Temperatures, and more, Clocks, which lets you reset your Motherboard clocks, and SMART Data.

Charts section: There is also a section that lets you create charts to visualize data recorded about various aspects of your computer. You can choose to see readouts of Temperatures, Fan Speeds, and Voltages to get a better idea of the way these values are trending over time so you can quickly identify when something is going wrong.

Cons

Not for beginners: Most of the information this program presents will have little meaning to inexperienced users. There are good warnings about taking actions that could potentially harm your computer if you don't know what you're doing, so you're not likely to do any harm. But it won't do you much good either.

Bottom Line

SpeedFan is a nice, free utility to help you monitor various aspects of your system. It presents all data clearly, and you can find what you're looking for quickly, thanks to the conveniently tabbed interface. It's not much use if you don't have some significant knowledge about your computer's inner workings. But for power users, it's a good tool.

    "Good program"

    October 07, 2014   |   By ajpctech

    Version: SpeedFan 4.50

    Pros

    Helps to know all your fans' speed to see if they are over working and getting too hot especially when overclocking.

    Cons

    It could load malware if not careful and decline all the optional requests. It's better to get it from filehippo.com

    "Resolved my overheating problem, no malware found."

    August 19, 2014   |   By greenLibertarian

    Version: SpeedFan 4.50

    Pros

    This program helped me identify the reason my computer was overheating: the fan speed was not increasing as temperatures increased.
    The monitoring is very useful. I have not tried the advanced features, no need.

    I scanned my computer with multiple malware/spyware programs after reading some of the reviews, and found none.

    Cons

    Would prefer to pay after trial period to the several revenue install options.
