my fans in my tower have been acting up and i don't have the money at the moment to replace them all.... mostly it seems once the computer boots up the fans work fine.

but a few times a fan is starting up really slow and my computer will go in to the BIOS to show me that one of my fans is spinning far too slow... but after about a minute the fan speed goes to what seems to be the normal speed for the rest of the fans.




so i was thinking about getting a monitoring program to be able to check the speed of my fans and/or temp of my motherboard/CPU.


but since i try to not have to over clock my system ever i have never really looked in to monitoring programs and have no idea if i should use one for what motherboard i have or if there is one that will work for pretty much any computer system.

I'm not sure what advantage a monitoring program would give you? Since you're already being warned of the problem (a fan fault) surely checking which fan is starting slowly and replacing just that fan is what you need to do. One fan should not be too expensive.
