Which is your motherboard?
Anyway: it looks like not to be a freeze strictly related to SpeedFan. You might try some of the following command line options:
Try to log values to try to find any odd value prior to system freeze.

My motherboard : MSI MS-6367N2

AUTOMATIC FAN SPEED disabled : no problem

with /NOSUPERIO : freeze
with /NOSMARTSCAN: it seems to works fine

What I have to do in configuration ?

So, it seems that both /NOSMARTSCAN and AUTOMATIC FAN SPEED set to OFF fix your issue.
Try to run SF with /NOSMARTSCAN and with AUTOMATIC FAN SPEED set to ON.
The fact that AUTOMATIC FAN SPEED set to OFF fixes your issues may mean either some problem in the circuitry controlling the fan (too big a fan, for example) or that your PC needs every bit of the cooling fan's capabilities.
You might send me a SEND REPORT with version 4.13 and let me know when you're done.

Ok. I received it this time, but... I can only see two temperatures available on your motherboard (the -46.5C is obviously an unused sensor). One temp is around 21C, whereas the other one is around 77C.
Your CPU is an old 0.18um one. Unless you know for sure that 77C is not the temp of your CPU, I consider this thread closed as it seems to me an obvious overheating problem. This follows strictly my previously expressed idea that your fan could not be slowed down.
