The installation of SpeedFan is easy and intuitive. You can
place the program files where you want them.
So how hot is your computer? How hot is the interior of the box? How hot is the
cpu? Usually the answer to these questions is only available when you boot your
computer and go into the bios settings. Even if your computer does show them,
what are you going to do if things are heating up?
You really can't do without SpeedFan. Let me tell you a tale. My computer
actually does show the temperatures and even the speed that two of the fans are
running at. And it shows this in a nice large LCD in the front of the computer
box itself. However to do something about these temperatures (besides shut the
computer down if it really gets hot) the computer company actually recommends
that you use SpeedFan!
Not only does SpeedFan have all kinds of tweaks and adjustments for your fans,
but it also reads the S.M.A.R.T. settings of your hard drives and tells you what
they are. It also monitors voltages and can change the FSB on some
I really recommend that you take the time to read the documentation on SpeedFan
and do some fine tuning, then you will really reap the benefits of SpeedFan.
In conclusion SpeedFan is one of those programs that you really can't do
without. So go get it now!
