I am looking for software to control my fan. Is there such a program? Looking for an easy to use program to set temperature and fan speed.

I would think if there is such a software to control fan speed through software rather than physically from your computer, it would be provided by the manufacturer of your motherboard. If I am mistaken, however, and there is a generic application that does this, I would be very interested in that.

Download Speedfan (The download link is in the first line of the second paragraph), and install it.

Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows.

This shows the the performance of your fans, temp, voltage. I'm not sure this is what you want. I don't know of any software that will do what you are asking.

SpeedFan works great if you want to change your fan speed.

I think you could also change some of those settings through your BIOS. Look through your motherboard manual to see if your mobo supports it.

EDIT: By the way, you can't set a temperature. You either have to speed up the fan to make your temps cooler, or buy additional cooling components.

If you give me the make and model of your mobo, I can see if your fan speeds can be changed by tweaking with your BIOS settings.

I can't find a manual for your mobo. I suggest you look through your computer manual and see if you can alter the fan speed through the BIOS. Also try going to your BIOS setup, and figure out if there is any control allowing you to change the speed of your fan.

Don't bring the speed down too low, or your system could overheat.

Go HERE and at the bottom of the page is the contact info for Emachines. You can also talk live chat with a Tech support person from this page. They should be able to answer if the bios will support fan speed adjustments.
