SpeedFan Alternatives?

As I'm sure most of you know SpeedFan is FUBAR now after the recent BE updates. I'm using an H60 to cool my GTX 970 and an H110 on my CPU. With SpeedFan I had a custom curve setup for the fans on the radiators. There is no way to set a fan curve in the settings of the BIOS, only static speeds. I don't need the fans on full blast all the time lol. Is there a decent alternative to SpeedFan out there, if not, what do I do?

Subbed. I'm looking for an alternative that will work with a Z97 Sabertooth. Haven't been able to find one. January Windows update killed Thermal Radar and ASUS has done nothing to fix it. Given it was a large part of why I am using a Sabertooth....I'm not really thrilled about that. There are a couple of things the BIOS fan control just isn't capable of.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Somehow my Asus Z97-A is still working fine with SpeedFan on the latest version of Windows 10

You can try Argus monitor for 1 month for free. And a license isn't so expensive.
I tried it and it's a really nice tool. I was also in contact with the developer to work some issues out that I was having the Asus sensors on my Hero X and they were very helpful, so +1 for them.

The reason I'm not using it anymore is because the Aquaero 6 is just the best for a custom loop, but it's also more expensive.
As a cheaper alternative for the AQ, you could have a look at the new Aquacomputer QUADRO. It looks like a nice device :-)

SpeedFan works just fine until I need it to when playing games. BattleEye disables it as soon as I launch a game and I have to restart the system to get it working again.

How about when you play a game that uses BattleEye?

Tons of people are having the same issue on virtually every game that uses BE

"Battleye is working with so called minifilters and block certain functions to eliminate possible cheating. In this case it is blocking functions which are able to read and write direct to your memory. This breaks the functionality of speedfan and its driver as soon as the battleye minfilter driver starts"
