Default What exactly is "SpeedFan"?

Hey, guys. I am looking for a freeware temperature/fan speed monitor program. I came across this one, http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php, and it looks OK. The only problem is, I want software that just tells you what is going on but can't override the systems default speed/temperature settings.

If your looking for something that just shows things, with out the option to modify anything, go with Everest or PC Wizard. Both are free.

Thanks. I downloaded PC Wizard and it works great, was easy to set up and gives all the information I want and then some.

Glad you like it. The only thing I don't trust on there is the voltage information. It reads way too far off on my computer.
