Editors' Review

+

This free program offers some useful system details to those savvy enough to understand its results. SpeedFan's tabbed interface isn't hard to navigate, but most users won't be able to make head or tail of the data this utility provides. The program's system-tray icon tells you the temperature of your PC's hard drive, and you can receive information on voltage and fan speeds.

The utility can display SMART data and includes a tool for resetting motherboard clocks. Basically, if this review makes no sense to you, SpeedFan is above your head and won't be worth downloading. However, PC technicians and those who like to do their own system maintenance might as well take a look at this application, particularly since it costs nothing.

"Amazing Program"

March 02, 2012  |  By dropdeadshadow

 |  Version: SpeedFan 4.45

Pros

Let you monitor Fan speeds, Temps, Volts, Cpu usage. You can also set the program up to run your computer fan, Or you can manually do it. Plus you can setup individual fans to run at certain rpms once they reach a certain temp both you can setup to your liking. Another great thing about this program is you can set Events. Lets say you setup an event that once you cpu hits 58c, You can have a message pop up, the computer beeps, or make the program execute a file like a shutdown.bat file. There are many more option as well. It does take a bit of tinkering with and some info from overclocking forums, But once you get it down you'll wounder why didn't you have this sooner.

Cons

The layout could use some updating. Also the program could use a start up with windows option, But no worries you can set it up to start with windows by using task scheduler.

Summary

It's a great powerful and very useful program. Tinker with it long enough and you'll love it. Plus it's free!

"Speed Fan is one of the best programs"

January 29, 2012  |  By Silverbirch3

 |  Version: SpeedFan 4.45

Pros

It's VERY versatile. I've been using it for a couple of years and love it. It actually saved one of my pc's and a laptop.

Cons

What Cnet said. It's not for the casual, "plug n play" computer user. If their review was gibberish to you, don't bother downloading the program.

"A good program that is not particularly intuitive."

January 13, 2012  |  By CJC1234

 |  Version: SpeedFan 4.45

Pros

Works fine doing more than I need.

Cons

I could put it to better use if I could ID more of the internal devices.

Summary

Well worth the install. The portions of the program usable are an asset. I plan on opening up the machine to physically ID the fans and devices which are listed in the monitoring summary.

Pros

highlight: you can control the fan speed at will to make tests.

somethings hard to understand for non-trained guys, since technical designations dont have a standard for "names".
