The one and only web site for SpeedFan is and will always be www.almico.com. Please, visit it. This website is from the same author of SpeedFan (Alfredo Milani Comparetti) and it is a placeholder to point to the original one.

SpeedFan is a freeware tool that can let you have a deeper view of the status of your computer. Most computers manufactured in the recent years include support for hardware monitoring. Accessing such resources is really useful. If you are trying to figure out why your pc hangs when heavily stressed, or after some hours of usage, SpeedFan might help you to find the real cause. Very often it is a poor power supply, or an improperly installed heatsink that lead to behaviours that we tend to associate with errors from the operating system, but that are not. SpeedFan automatically searches your hardware for interesting chips. The hardware monitor chips. SpeedFan can expose voltages, fan speeds and temperatures. On rare occasions, the BIOS didn't activate such features. SpeedFan tries to enable them as long as this is a safe thing to do. Not only the motherboard is searched, but also some video cards and almost every recent hard disk. SpeedFan can access health info from EIDE, SATA and even SCSI drives, showing, in a consistent way, internal data that can be used to diagnose current and future hard disk failures. This is known as S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology). On some hardware, SpeedFan is even able to change the Front Side Bus (FSB) depending on CPU usage, but this should be considered as a bonus feature. At the lowest level, SpeedFan is an hardware monitor software that can access temperature sensors, but its main feature is that it can control fan speeds according to the temperatures inside your pc, thus reducing noise and power consumption.
