recently updated win 10 now Speedfan is having issues scanning and is reading/reporting the temps.

anyone else using Speedfan have problems or might know a solution?

I havent used Speedfan in over a decade, sorry.

There are other ( perhaps better) tools for the job (mobo, software for mobo, HWMonitor, etc).

There are a dozen programs that will work for temp monitoring.

Hwmonitor (or open hwmon above), Coretemp, AIDA64 will do it... etc.

It is time to bin Speedfan.

Never had an issue with Asus Suite ... FanXpert is part of Asus Suite and as i recall to install it, you need to install Asus Suite. Once that's done, you can disable or uninstall the Suite and keep FanXpert. I have done it for one user ... he wasn't having any problems, he just wanted it removed cause he read it on the internet.

BTW, Im talking about controlling fan speeds ... if you just want monitoring, HWiNFO will cover that ... and anything else ya can think of.

I used to love speedfan for the ability to set up custom fan curves.. these days you have a lot of that functionality in the bios itself so it's far less useful than it used to be. As for monitoring, you can't really beat hwinfo imo.

I use Asus AI Suite, this way I can switch to different fan profiles I've created, which you can't do otherwise.

Honestly... my question (to anyone) is why do you need it? Why not set all fans to quiet and leave it? Surely your overclock isnt pushed to the limit for daily driving where the couple C difference tips the scales when running non stress test apps (like games).

I mean, most stress tests are 10-20c+ higher than you'll see during most loads. So there is typically plenty of headroom.

As long as I have been in this industry as an enthusiast and reviewer, I've been finding over the last few years that I could care less about setting curves and monitoring anything (after initial setup) unless I have issues. It makes for a much more peaceful existence with the PC when I'm not mulling over minutia.:)

Not all systems are alike, not all BIOS have fan curve settings, ............ shall I go on?

I'm not installing asus suite, dont need shitware Re-installed.

Yes, I want fan control, not monitoring so much, thats why I used Speedfan. supposedly Thermal Radar did control fans, but as I said....
Yes I have seen the internet posts but never experienced a problem in 35-40 installs except for that one version where the install routine was borked. A fix was issued and not a problem since or future versions were fine. As far as the bloatware claim, last my reboot was 3 days ago and since then it has used 4 seconds of CPU time ... in that same span Ccleaner has used 10.
We used to use Speedfan on low budget MoBos that didn't provide a speed control utility ... results were spotty, sometimes it worked, more often it didn't. Nowadays it's not supported on more and more Motherboards which is why this topic is becoming more and more common on this and other forums. Simply put, at 18+ years old, it's archaic .

Yes, it remains a usable options where the Motherboard manufacturers won't include a utility at the low end spectrum as a means to entice folks into spending a few more bucks, but if your MoBo is in that large pool where it doesn't work, your best bet will be a manual controller. Many utilities will monitor temps and rpms, but ones that actually control anything have faded into history. Speedfan and the native manufacturer utilities are the only ones i can recommend. If neither is an option because it doesn't work or you choose not t use it, a hardware option would be your remaining option.

No need to be testy about it...... :)

It may not have the ability to set a curve, but does it have low, medium, and high? Its been a while since I played with that older budget hardware so I am not familiar with what it has.

EDIT: My point, in case it was missed, is that most of the time just setting things to quiet/low offers plenty of cooling and is quiet.

I have been using Argus Monitor since the Asus certificate fiasco killed my AISuite and so far I am happy with it.
Thats a nice find. for $20, I will have to think about it more.


Well if worse comes to worse I'll have to reconfigure and reinstall GRID+ to do the fan controlling.

@DeathtoGnomes, I have used speedfan on almost every computer I have ever had. I LOVE it even though it seems to have lost it's support recently. I believe your problem is related to your windows 10 updates on your AMD system. I'd just wait for the next update to unbreak it. I've had a few failure to respond issues on my Z97 intel windows 7 system recently and the issues go away pretty fast. I currently run speedfan on an ASUS ET2300INTI with windows 10 installed. I have seen it freeze at SMBUS also. Just give it a couple of days, and bingo! A computer without speedfan is like a hot dog without mustard!!!

Thanks P4-630 but I have and it still doesn't work properly for me.
I believe it's because I haven't updated to one of the newer BIOS versions available for my MB.
And I am not willing to do that and end up having the cold boot issues and RAM OC issues I have read come with the newer versions.
Once they work out those bugs I might update the BIOS, but only if it has features I actually want or need.
Right now I'm very happy with Argus Monitor.
Just FYI,
I did get Aura working again though.

Well, that's the very issue here, define quiet. ;) The OP may have other needs than you.
