    I would like to knwo if there is a freeware software fan controll application that you may know of. I have tried speedfan to no avail. please advise

      You can try ASUS Probe, it works for me. However, not everything is compatible with everything, which is probably why SpeedFan did not work.

      Hope this helps!

    This was very useful, I did not know that there was software available to measure temperature! This is vary new and useful info. Thanks.

    I was curious about best practices for transporting components in your vehicle. For instance, how long can memory or a hard drive sit in my car in the Florida heat before I should worry about damaging it? Any reply is appreciated.

    • Aneeqsterman says:

      Well, I don’t think this would be a problem. As we know computers get VERY hot. My computer right now has an extra fan in it, yet the CPU, with a heat sink AND fan right on top of it, stays over 50 degrees centigrade! As long as your stuff is in a static-proof bag and moving parts aren’t bashed around, I don’t think there should be a problem. 🙂

      Hope this helps!
