SpeedFan 4.49 Monitor Voltage, Fan Speed And Temperat...
on some hardware (but this should be considered a bonus feature). At the lowest level, SpeedFan 4.49 is a hardware monitor software that can access digital temperature sensors, but its main feature is that it can change fan speeds (depending on the capabilities of your sensor chip and your hardware) according to the temperatures inside your pc, thus reducing noise. Several sensors, like Winbond' s and the AS99127F support fan speed changing, as well as others from Maxim, Myson, Analog Devices, National Semiconductor and ITE, but the hardware manufacturer must have connected the relevant pins to some additional, yet trivial, circuitry. This means that if you have, say, a Winbond W83782D on a BP6 then you' re ok, but not every motherboard with such a hardware monitor chip will be able to change fan speeds. From one of the very first hardware monitor chips that could be found in standard PCs, the National Semiconductor LM75 (and all of its clones, like the Philips NE1617 and the Philips NE1618 or the Maxim MAX1617) or the Analog Devices ADM1021, such chips have been greatly improved, both in their precision and in their capabilities. Current chips can monitor fan speeds, voltages and change fan speeds by using PWMs (Pulse Width Modulation). Some chips can even be programmed to vary fan speeds without any additional software intervention. If your BIOS was programmed to setup such chips this way you can still try to use SpeedFan' s Advanced Configuration to revert to manual (software controlled) mode. Winbond W83697HF, Analog Devices ADT7463, SMSC EMC6D102, ITE IT8712F, National LM85C and Maxim MAX6650 are very good candidates. Some SuperIO chips include temperature sensors too. SpeedFan can automatically detect them and use their features. SpeedFan can find almost any hardware monitor chip connected to the 2-wire SMBus (System Management Bus, a subset of the I2C BUS) Serial Interface and to the ISA BUS and works fine with Windows 9x, ME, NT, 2000, 2003 and Windows XP. It works with Windows 64 bit too. It can be minimized to the tray and is compatible with Motherboard Monitor 5.
What is new in official SpeedFan 4.49 software version? - fixed a typo that caused ACPI temperatures to be reported wrongly on some Windows 7 - changed the name of the installer to improve compatibility with Windows 8. What is expected in the future? Newly-made SpeedFan 4.50 be downloaded from current page, we also looking forward to unconfirmed 4.51 release build. You may download sfdownload.php directly, estimated download time by ISDN or CDMA [~128 kbit/s] is 0:01:29. Just write the reviews of the SpeedFan. System requirements are unspecified. Program has been scanned and verified by the several antivirus and anti-spyware applications and SpeedFan found to be clean. New guides and SpeedFan tutorials are easy to follow and give you the knowledge to use SpeedFan 4.49 software. The following languages are supported by SpeedFan: English.
