HDD Fan Control

Reduce Fan Noise and Protect your Drive.

Much improved HDD Fan Control Version 2.0 Released

With the iMac Hard Drive Replacement Fan Noise Issue still remaining in the new 2011 iMacs and effecting models since late 2009, many people are replacing their hard drives or upgrading to SSD’s and some people are even upgrading to 3 SSD’s in the new 2011 models.

HDD Fan Control is the best solution to the Fan Speed/Noise issue. As such the demand for HDD Fan Control has never been stronger, so we felt it time to implement all the great features requested by its users and completely rewrite the code for improved control and to handle multiple drives and SSD’s.

We have also included a Status Bar HDD Fan Control Monitoring Application to allow users to view their drive’s temperature as reported by S.M.A.R.T and the fans current speed.

Here is a run down of this versions main new features.

  • Completely redesigned and improved UI.
  • HDD Fan Control Monitor – Status Bar application allowing you to see HDD Temperature as reported by S.M.A.R.T and current fan speed, quick access to HDD Fan Control Preference Pane. (NOTE: Monitor not required for HDD Fan Control to run)
  • Advanced features for systems with multiple SSD’s or HDD’s especially in 2011 iMac’s.
  • Completely rewritten code with improved fan control algorithm and temperature response; optimized to access the drive’s S.M.A.R.T interface only when needed.
  • Full override mode for SSD’s that do not report temperature or is reported incorrectly and drives that refuse to behave.
  • Ability to select which drive to read SMART data from in multiple drive systems.
  • Ability to reset settings to good default values.
