Is speed fan no good.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Sorry if this is the wrong section, seemed closest to the topic. I usually use core temp or real temp. Used speed fan a long time ago. Anyways I wanted to try speed fan again because it was recommended here.

So I opened up all 3 listed programs at once and speed fan is totally different. I don't even see the cpu temp of 33c that the others are showing listed anywhere. Whats the deal with this anyone know??

I've found speedfan to be very inaccurate (It shows a part of my older system at 293C, constant, obviously wrong), and have switched to Coretemp a while back, I personally believe CoreTemp is the most accurate, but it's between Realtemp and Coretemp really, personal preference. Realtemp looks the most correct from this picture.

Also, this is the correct forum to post in, welcome to OCN too.

I also have a sensor that Speed Fan says the temperature is -293C. Speed Fan won't let me adjust the speed of my fans anymore either, is there another program that does?

So what does everyone use for AMD, realtemp wouldn't work. And coretemp only gives me one temp for my 555 be, is that normal?

Look at the core temp readings vs the speedfan readings. They are off by exactly 10C. There are temperature offset settings under the advanced tab in speedfan. You need to add 10 to the offset for the cores.

Speedfan is actually a great program once it's configured properly. It does not work "out of the box" like the other programs, but it controls fan speeds, which is awesome!

I liked apeedfan as no other temp program registered my laptops temps at all while speed fan could.

But fan speeds I can't change much either...

It's actually up to the motherboard as to whether it can control the fan speeds or not. In a laptop, I'm not too surprised that it can't do it. Same goes for cheap motherboards.

Speedfan on my old work computer was way off so I never used it again. That computer was AMD and core temp seemed to be spot on temp wise.
