Would you buy a tool like this?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Would you buy a tool that has the overclocking ability like MSI Afterburner, and the fan control capabilities of Speedfan and the sensor information of GPU-Z with advanced overheat protection all in one? Possible remote control and remote viewing of temps,fans and whatnot.

I've seen a lot of overheating threads in my time here, my tool could help mitigate that problem or at the least, try to. I am just asking so I get a general idea if it would be a sought tool.

I personally wouldn't purely because i'm putting all my eggs in one basket. With the failure of a single program I'm loosing 3 different services which i could split up and have 3 failures instead.

What I mean is, it's pushing all the reliability onto a single program, in addition to that it would have to be tried and tested by a number of people prior to me putting it on my machine as well.

It's a nice idea, however I don't think it'll fly because people know the likes of speedfan, afterburner, etc etc.

No, I would not buy that. I can get all of that for free already.

Oh you're charging for it...

No is the more simple answer, I won't pay for that when I can get it for free.

Every software can potentially crash at a critical moment. It's called bugs, every program(including games) has them. Obviously, as a single guy developing the tool, I might make mistakes, but I am testing it on my own rig right as we speak.

Name one application that protects the computer from overheating, especially when gaming/benching. Both for CPU AND GPU.

Short answer, no. I would not pay for those things as that type of software is readily available for free.

First off, don't be patronising, we're well aware of what a bug is and what it consists of. Second off, I wouldn't trust what could be the best part of £400 - £800 of kit to a single app.

What it comes down to, is that you would be charging for what is already free... Yeah it's "Convenient" to get it all in one, but not enough for an un-polished and finished product I'd say... We could potentially have one service crash and ruin all three instead of one separate one going down instead is what Comp was getting at, and he's perfectly right.

Would it be convenient? Yeah, but a lot of hoops would have to be jumped through first.

You may know what a bug is, but there are various ways to detect an application crash and restart it.

You seem to be misunderstanding, my application is not just a tool to get sensor data and fan control, it just provides these as sort of a bonus. The concept of the program is system protection from overheating, something that I have not seen on the market, or as a free tool.

If you really want people to gauge whether or not it would be viable to market, this is a perfect test bed. Put a link up and let people 'beta test' it for free. From there you can get direct feedback and then decide how to market it. Like others have said, there are plenty of free alternatives readily available. The burden of proof is on you to create value in your product. Testing is one of the best ways to get that.
