So i have an HP laptop w/an AMD processor... & it runs hot (no surprises there!).

I'm worried about my GPU & CPU being so hot all the time, & was thinking about installing SpeedFan, but the warning attached to it has me worried about actually installing it. Verbatim - "This program is aimed at the power user. At those who know what they're doing... SpeedFan can be extremely useful, but you should first watch its behavior before setting and forgetting it." I will of course wait for as long as it takes to understand what i should/shouldn't do, what i should read up on for a while before making a decision, etc...

My thinking is that i would like to see the temperature on my desktop, because i simply don't want my hardware to be exposed to heated for a prolonged period of time. And truth be told, i use my computer a LOT. If there is anything i could do to go beyond the factory settings to get the temp down, i'll do it.

Anyone have any insight on this? I would really be much obliged.

You can install SpeedFan safely. What they are speaking of are the many adjustments that you can make with SpeedFan.

You can make the fans run faster or slower and there are some other points you can configure. But for the average person, to install and read the temps and revs does not put you in danger.


Here is another program that can tell you info about your system.

Good luck.
