Summary0000155: "Automatic fan speed" setting forgotten between runs
DescriptionI don't believe this problem is the same as the one reported in bug 154 (, even though I also have an Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe.

SpeedFan 4.18 worked fine for me. I just installed 4.19, and the "Automatic fan speed" setting is always unchecked when I run it. I select it, and it works, but it is unchecked again when I close and relaunch SpeedFan.

I've checked all settings, and they are fine--nothing there has changed.

I reinstalled 4.18, and the "Automatic fan speed" setting is working fine again.

I just closed my SpeedFan 4.19 and that setting was properly restored to checked. Did you try to reinstall SpeedFan 4.19?
I'm going to investigate this issue asap.

I just redownloaded and reinstalled 4.19 (the download was unnecessary, as the hashes checked out as identical anyway). The same issue exists.

I reinstalled 4.18 again, and the automatic fan speed setting is once again working correctly.

I have the same problem after installing 4.19 - "Automatic fan speed" is not checked when SpeedFan is started...

Try to play with "Debug Mode" or "SMBus" options - it solved the problem for me...

Normaly I have both unchecked - I tried to check them... After this "Automatic fan speed" works fine - even if I uncheck them again...

Clearly it's a bug, so playing with other settings is actually a workaround, not a solution. I'll wait for a fix.

Ignore please previous post..

I have hopefully found the problem - the problem is in SpeedFan shortcut - when is "Start in minimized window" (or something like this - I don't have english Windows version) option selected in shortcut properties, SpeedFan will start with "Automatic fan speed" unchecked.

So set it to "Normal window" and select "start minimized" in SpeedFan options and you will be fine...

Again, I beg to differ. I run SpeedFan from a command script, not a shortcut. How you run it should make no difference. It is a bug, and I'm sure Alfredo will have it rectified soon.

Yes, it is a bug...

This issue still exists with version 4.20. (This is intended to make other users aware, as I'm sure Alfredo already knows.)

Please, Scott, drop me an email. I will fix this issue, but I need someone that can always reproduce this issue. If this is your case, I will be glad to create a new beta for you to try.

I just sent to you a beta :-)

This issue has been fixed in the latest beta. I might publish it online for registered users in the near future.
