Argus Monitor vs SpeedFanSupports more modern hardware, is still regularly updated.Like Speedfan, only better. Easier to set up and also better looking. Superior in any way, except it's not free. Still, worth trying out.i think it should be freeThe only other software that has Fan Control for most Windows PCs, most other fan control programs seem to only work for Macs. It's literally the only other alternative to SpeedFan unless you have specific motherboards that has fan control software bundled with it.Actually lets you control the speeds of all your fans (among other things)!Very powerful and reliable alternative to any bios or software fan controllers. Essentially a paid version of SpeedFan, but up to date with better chipset and sensor compatibility. If SpeedFan gives you any problems or your setup is unsupported you should definitely give Argus a try.Can control fans based on a graph, can display SMART info, monitors a bunch of other stuff.
