Anybody using this out there? I'm currious to see how it works but don't want to harm my system, Think I'm gonna try it on the old Dell First.
I don't know enough about computers to say but I can tell you my experience. First I have read that it is not reliable for all systems. I don't think it caused problems on my computer nor am I sure that it was accurate. Second, it did help me once. I had installed speedfan and just used it as a monitor to verify that settings remained the same. I had played with it a bit to see if it worked for the fan settings. Glad I had. Approx. two months later I ran the test my computer for games at system requirement labs using the link on the games page forum here which for some unknown reason is closed for comment. I have and play GTR2 racing game but site didn't have this game listed yet, new game, so I substituted GTR. Told me I can't play the game. Without leaving these forums, all of a sudden, my fans started coming on. My fans never come on except when playing GTR2. First there was a 5 min. interval between fan coming on and off. Then it was quicker. Finally always on. I checked speed fan. My settings had been changed to figures that I could not previously change to. Both fans had always been at 40%. Now one was at 65% and the other was at 57%. Did not matter what or how I tried prior to this, you could not make the fan run at a speed that was not a multiple of five. How it got it to 57% I don't know. So speed fan let me know that a change had been made. I have just finished doing a destructive recovery as I didn't know what else the test had changed on me and I didn't like the way my computer was running after this. I haven't heard my fan in the two days its been since recovery. They had a few things to sell me after running test for games.325isbimmer said:Anybody using this out there?
