Summary0002683: SpeedFan reducing CPU cooling performance even after uninstallation
DescriptionGreetings fellows,
I stumbled upon this forum while trying to solve issue I encountered while using SpeedFan 4.52 software.
I installed the software, made "automatic fan speed" checked and started playing a game (witcher 3).
What happened is that my computer started to randomly turning itself off. I realized my GPU temps were getting high and GPU fan PWM were 0 RPM even on 100% GPU load and high GPU temps.

This is where I found this forum with this issue:

It allowed me to fix my GPU problem - I've installed MSI Afterburner and restorted my GPU fans to work normally.

BUT I think that my CPU temps are way higher now than they were before... Even thou the fan is working the same loudness as before! I think my CPU temps got 0000007:0000015 degrees higher on idle and like 0000008:0000025 degrees under load...

Of course I uninstalled it, removed all registry entries but the problem still persists. I did reset the GPU I think but I don't know what's with the CPU...

I'm very sad and angry at this software. It is outrageous that it messes up with computer even if it is completely uninstalled.

I don't know if I'm advanced enough to do CMOS reset, which might help (?)

Could you please help me what to do? I just want my computer back to the state before SpeedFan installation, but I don't want to format everything, install all system and drivers all the way again, I have SO MUCH software and plugins I just couldn't stand it, it would take me weeks.

Please help me with this if you can.

Some perhaps importaint info:
MY gear:
CPU: Intel i7 7700k
Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo with Noctua NF-S12A PWM chromax fan
GPU: Radeon RX580
Mobo: Biostar z270GT9 Racing
Case: Silentium Aquarius X70W (3 fans - controls on case - working)

Software to monitor temps and RPM: HWMonitor

Additional perhaps importaint info:
I had similar problem with temps on my CPU before, when I was gaming I had like 0000023:0000080-90 degrees on CPU, but my GPU was not really working then, some driver problem.
I did a clear install of my GPU drivers and then my GPU started to be utilized properly and I had temps like 0000004:0000050-70 on CPU while gaming...
But now, my GPU is working correctly and I still got 0000023:0000080-90 on CPU while gaming... it was altered by installation (and uninstallation) of SpeedFan.

If you could help me, that would be great, I'm stressed because of this situation.
Best regards

Check your hardware instead of crying here. The program can't do the things you've described above.
