Its similar but it also lets you control fan speeds which I dont care
about and also has a smart monitor for your HDs including temps.
The weird thing here is the SMART readings for each HD.
At the bottom it gives a fitness bar graphic.
My Maxtor and WD - the WD was acting flakey when I first got it but is
fine now and it reads 100% like my Maxor in fitness.
My brandnew seagate reads 40% ! Should I be worried about that?
Or is it normal especially if you are using it for the boot disk?
Also the IT8712F temp readings for CPU, system and theres a third
temp. Al the temp readings Ive seen for the VNF4 chaintech only
includes two so the 3rd I assume isnt important. My CPU and system
are real low temps but within the normal range. My third which I
assume isn't relevant , constantly stays at 261 F .
Theres also a strange thing with the Maxtor temp readings instead of
one temp , its gives TWO temps - one is a bit high 109 F the other
lower than the others 90 F .
Re: Anyone use SPEEDFAN - motherboard monitor like free utility
Yeah , I did a search and others seem to get 50-60% readings too so it
doesnt seem to be that important I guess. The whole thing is
mysterious. You have to know what the readings mean etc to interpret
them. My Maxtor gives over twice as many figures as the other drives
and the results tend to rest on some figure that the manufacturer
inputs so thats a factor.
