Windows 7: Set up SpeedFan

05 Jan 2013   #1

Microsoft® Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Set up SpeedFan


I need some help setting up SpeedFan. I didn't use this program before.
The goal is to have automatic fan control (balance between noise PC and cool PC) but I can't even get it to control CPU fan speed manually as it's confusing.
I can control the GPU fan speed though.

Here are screenshots for the Configuration window. Please check them and give me advice what should I check etc...
I want to:
Have a box that lets me adjust...
CPU fan speed
GPU fan speed

And also set them automatic (but as a precaution, not letting it going below 70% of each). I was able to configure it to set all to default (100%) when quitting the app.

Here are the screenshots:

I've been using SF for quite some time, even though it seems to never detect everything that it should, but usually once it has been installed, it generally continue detecting whatever it has found, unless there is some kind of hardware problem. However, at the last reboot it popped a dialog...
