It's a nice idea but we'll have to see how it catches on. I'm guessing motherboard maker support will be key. For this to do much for me, though, it'd have to out-perform Speedfan, which having finally added support for monitoring VGA card sensors is now my one-stop shop.

I see a potential issue here. In order to make this system really worthy for silent enthusiasts, hardware manufacturers will have to allow fan speeds that, in some cases, may kill the hardware. Will they do it? Doubtly, HP and ASUS are not the guys that would use a "use at your own risk" disclaimer. Therefore a dremel and a soldering iron are still our best friends.

I'm still waiting for them to open their hardware specs like DAAMIT.

SpeedFan still can't monitor your PSU or control its fan.

If it catches on, SpeedFan will be modified to hook into this system.

SpeedFan monitors VGA cards now? I've got to go upgrade.
