The most important issue that causes many internal as well as external problems in your system is probably the over increase in temperature, which sometimes gets beyond control and burns the internal components that might affect certain hardware parts as well. Some of the most commonly found problems are non-functional keyboard, LAN jack, speakers, non-responsive trackpad and the most famous of them all, the blind screen or the blank screen. They all can be attributed to the overheating of the processor. There are many programs that help you address this issue and perform precautionary measures to protect the expensive stuff, just like SpeedFan
Exploring The Stuff
SpeedFan's improved architecture now allows it to control a maximum of 5 fans and provide you with its health and temperature statistics regularly. Workstations, servers and gaming laptops usually need a lot of attention.
- It is equipped with features that enable you to correctly monitor the health of your system so that you can take corrective actions and avoid any unprecedented incident like hard disk failure, VGA failure takes place due to excessive heat under the hood.
- It can collect S.M.A.R.T data from the hard disk. It is also capable of recording voltages, fan speed, and surrounding chassis temperature, and even reports the statistics to you in real time.
- SpeedFan is now compatible with the latest builds like Windows 7, 8, 10 and Windows Server 2012 and prior ones like Windows 9x, ME till Vista. It supports both the 32-bit and 64-bit architecture.
Robustness At Peak
SpeedFan provides access to temperature from the sensors on your graphics cards like Nvidia, the CPU or the heart of your system, and as well as the complete ambient circuitry, which is the chassis or the motherboard. There is usually a widget to display and notify you. It can further access the digital temperature sensors. You can set it to automatically adjust the fan speeds accordingly.
Processor & Hard Disk Health
It is a well-known fact that modern processors can report their own internal temperature, like Intel and AMD. The multi-core ones can even report temperatures of each core separately. SpeedFan monitors them and even reports the occurring changes. It can also report health and statistics records of SCSI hard disks and help you in avoiding failures due to improper functioning. SpeedFan, as of now, provides complete support for software based health record monitoring and even managing them.
