SpeedFan is a program that monitors voltages, fan speeds and temperatures in computers with hardware monitor chips. SpeedFan can even access S.M.A.R.T. info and show hard disk temperatures. SpeedFan supports SCSI disks too. SpeedFan can even change the FSB on some hardware. SpeedFan can access digital temperature sensors and can change fan speeds accordingly, thus reducing noise. SpeedFan can find almost any hardware monitor chip connected to the 2-wire SMBus and works fine with Windows 9x, ME, NT, 2000, 2003, XP, Vista and Windows 7. It works with Windows 64 bit too.
So whats new in Beta 2?
“DELL support has been further improved and users confirmed that it is able to properly change fan speeds on a wide range of systems. Intel Patsburg SMBus support has been added and Nvidia video card support should now be able to access devices on the I2C with driver versions newer than 275. Other fixes and improvements are there, as usual.”beta, SpeedFan
