Instructions on How to Use SpeedFan
You might feel that using SpeedFan is complicated work. Though it is, to some extent. But I’ll explain all the steps simply and thoroughly so that you won’t feel it be much complicated.
Debugging and Precautions
Controlling and regulating the fans through SpeedFan is a bit complicated. Because you might face some side effects. As a result, your PC might lag while using the SpeedFan. For this reason, before starting the process, debug all the electric-controlled fans.
The SpeedFan software is not in-built. You have to install it from the internet. For that, search for SpeedFan on google. You’ll get several links to download SpeedFan from. Choose any one you like. And then install it on your computer operating system.

Configuration of SpeedFan
After you’ve installed the SpeedFan software, launch it. There you’ll find a lot of options. On the right corner of the upper half portion of SpeedFan software, you’ll find two options.
Please note that the bottom left portion of the window shows the speed of each fan and the right side shows the corresponding temperature values. The closer the temperature is to the room temperature, the better. But you should be concerned if the temperature rises above 85 degrees Celsius.
There is a box between ‘GPU Fan’ and ‘%’. Select 100% in that box. After that, press the ‘configure’ button from the upper right portion.
The ‘configure’ dialogue box should pop up and search for ‘Delta value for fan speeds’. This part is important for ensuring the maximum speed of the fans. Select it to be 100%.
Selecting Appropriate Chip
Furthermore, go to the ‘Advanced’ tab from the top menu bar. You’ll find a drop-down menu bar beside ‘Chip’.
Here, select the superiOR chip according to your computer configuration. However, keep in mind that, PWM chips can control the manual PWM chip better.
Selecting the Speed of the Fans
By using this software, you can adjust the fan speed with the arrow keys from the ‘fan control’ window. You can select it to any percentage up to 100%. But be careful about one thing. Don’t keep the fan speed below 30%. This is dangerous because keeping the fan profile so low might make your fan often stop working.
In this window, you can select the range of your fan speed depending on the temperature. Choose anyone you think is right.
Again, from the ‘Speeds’ section, select the maximum and minimum value of the fan speed and then search for the checkbox named ‘Automatically Variated’. Enable the checkbox.
Adjusting the Temperatures
You can adjust the temperatures under the ‘Temperatures’ tab. If you think that the temperature of the computer is too high, you can adjust a few fans’ speeds by clicking ‘Show-in-tray’. Here, you can monitor every fan you have built on your computer and adjust the speed accordingly.
These are the primary steps of using the SpeedFan application software.
There is an additional tip I can give you after all these steps. If you want to monitor your fan’s progress as soon as you turn on the computer, you can add it to the ‘quick access toolbar’, the extreme right portion of the taskbar. There, it will always be in front of you and you can check the progress of your fans whenever you want.
Finally, let me tell you one more thing. Sometimes you might not find the accurate chip selection for your computer. For example, if you’re using a laptop, the chip options will be different. In that case, don’t panic. Search google for the appropriate chip for your computer model and then select it accordingly.
