    Post Slow down your PC fan

    Hi all,

    this is not security related topic but I think that it is good to post it. Many of people hate the noise their computer makes. At least I do. If you have the same problem try SpeedFan program. Information about this prog and dowload version could be found here. Many of you probably know this stuff but for those who don't - it's a program that measures temperature of you processor, HDD etc. and because when your processor is not used (its temperature is descending) -> you(speedfan) can simply lower RPM of your cooler. When the temperature rises RPM rises. Simple and usefull!))) (work only on some exact motherboards but IMO it covers really large number of them so it should be no problem)

    btw you use this program on your own risc! but don't be scared I'm and my mates are using it and we are really satisfied... no processors were harmed

    I would love to use this. My PC sounds like a jet going doen the runway. Alas' I can't though, I just threw in another HDD and my proc is OC'ed from 950MHz to 1.1GHz. So I could fry an egg on it if I slowed down any of the fans. Still a good utility.

    I am not gonna be using the proggie to control my fans, I just am curious to see as how hot my CPU runs. I got a dual fan for the CPU, 2 case fans, and my power supply fan (of course). I just wanna see how hot everything runs, even though it should be nice and cool.

    BTW, Thnx P2P, for the direct linkage

    thanx for answer and atachment - I read that part about temperature and if I get it right I could have almost any temperature under 90degrees. (of course at higher temperatures will be processor less stable but won't get hurt) right? anyway greenies for you
