Speed Fan

  chaztait 21:50 08 Oct 2007

Hey i downloaded this programme called speed fan. It can control the speed of your fans on the computer to make it fun quieter. Does my computer have its fans set to automatic or are they always on 100 % until i change it ?

If it is ok to change the speed of the fans what percentage should i put them at, and will the speed up if needed ?

If it aint broke, don't fix it.

Speedfan is ok for those who fully understand the data, otherwise personally I don't think it is worth bothering with.

IT was just to make pc fun quieter ?

I assume you mean - run quieter. Fans normally run 100%, unless you change them. If you want to go ahead, fine, but just experiment with gradual minor changes at first - keep an eye on temperatures though!

hey, i enabled Q fan controller yestarday and a CPU Q fan or something aswell. Does this mean it only goes at the speed that is required to cool it down?

is there a simple program to monitor your temperature of everything. For example a side bar for vista. I had a look on the windows website but couldnt find any and justnow all i have is cpu usage.

PC Wizard is a great program tells you all your temperatures and much more ...

marg 7. Yes i did notice a difference when i enabled it. But was unsure when one of the temp guages went from 35 to 48 degrees when i put the CPU on ful throttle. But it sould be ok then since you said it adjusts the spped itself and will shut the computer down if too hot, like a fail safe ?
