Saving Speedfan Settings?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

recently, I've turned Smartfan off because I seem to be getting better temps with it off, and running constantly at 50% (it's pretty quiet already), and when I need to, run it at 100%.

However, whenever I start up my computer, speedfan seems to be putting the fan on 100%. I have smartfan disabled in my bios, and after every boot, I need to adjust the speed....

I've also noticed the one CPU fan, is controlled by "Speed4" and "Speed6", where each seem to be about 50%, for instance, if I keep 4 at 100, and 6 at 0, it will run at 50%, however if I keep both at 100, it will run full blast, and finally, if I put both Speed4 and 6 at 0, it will just shut off completely, is there anyway I can adjust it to be just one box?

and finally, are there any other programs also useful to help control CPU fan speeds?
Speedfan seems a bit advanced for what I just want to use it for.

Thanks!

Do you have your fans set the software controlled? if not set it to that and try it again

Yep, they were previously set, I guess..

But never saved anything?

EDIT: nvm.. solved it,

Sorry, I know this is 3 weeks old, but I was wondering if the OP had solved this issue? I too seem to be having the same issue as him. It seems like my Speed04 and Speed06 both control my CPU fan. I was hoping to run both at around 65-75%, but every time I do that and restart my computer, both fan speeds go back up to 100%. Is there a way to permanently set the speeds? I'd hate to
adjust the fan speed every time I start my computer. Thanks.

I previously thought the % shown on the main screen was a setting that you can adjust, but rather it is just a display to show what % the fans are currently running.

I went into Configure -> Speed tab -> adjusted Speed04 minimum to 75% and max to 75% as well since I wanted to keep the fan speed stable at 75% -> did the same for Speed06 -> checked off Automatically Variated (not sure if I needed to since I'm running them at 75% all the time) -> click 'Ok' -> check mark 'Automatic Fan Speed' on the main screen.

You can also go to the 'Temperature' tab to adjust your min and max temps, but I felt no need to do that since I'm going to be running the fans at 75% all the time anyways, and I'll be monitoring my temps accordingly. Another thing I noticed is you would want to automatically run Speedfan upon Windows startup so that the adjusted fan speeds can take effect upon loading windows.

The best way to do this is to go to your Task Scheduler and add a task to run speedfan upon loading windows. I tried placing the .exe file in my startup folder, but it didn't load every time.

Got it, I usually want 0% when I'm just using the computer, regularly, since my core stays right around 28ish, but when I start up a game, usually pop it into 100%.

I had everything except the Automatic Speed Control.

I guess I'll just keep manually adjusting it, since it doesn't seem to work if I use the automatic.

If I use the automatic, it'll want to keep my fans at 100%, and most days I'm only using the computer for homework.. or music, or chatting, in which 100% fans get pretty annoying. laugher.gif

If you want speed fan to come on after you log into windows, download the .zip file below or if you want to do it manually and double click the reg file in it.

I've managed to get it open up when I boot into Windows, just by making a shortcut in my startup folder..

Did you set your temperature range? Adjusting that can let your fan run at different speeds according to temp.
