What is it the Beta Program
Every now and then I create some bleeding edge versions of SpeedFan, or of some other softwares (always related to SpeedFan),
to receive feedback from the users. Such programs try to access new hardware or try to investigate new ways to read available
data. Before going into the mainstream SpeedFan, I need to make sure that everything works fine and that nothing else is
broken. Everything I post here has been previously tested on my very own computers.

Beta Program Disclaimer
All the downloads posted here should be considered experimental. Everything was previously tested on my own hardware and
on my production computers. This means that you can trust me when I say I did my best not to hurt anything. Nonetheless,
a beta software might hurt your hardware and you might lose your data. Always close other programs prior to running anything
you download from here and backup your data. You should try these programs only if you know what you are doing and if
you are willing to help me by sending your feedback.

SpeedFan.exe is digitally signed using my company's (SOKNO S.R.L.) certificate.
In order to run this beta, simply install SpeedFan 4.50, then replace the EXE (or put it in any temporary folder) and run it.
Please, use the SEND REPORT facility on the INFO tab to help me to evaluate the improvements I coded.
Tool to read ACPI TABLES 1.11 (15 apr 2010)
This tool has been superseded. SpeedFan 4.43 on will automatically send the relevant information.
Program to attempt to set AAM on hard disks that support it 1.01 (15 dec 2004)
This software tries to understand which OS and which drivers do support the relevant calls that need to
be done in order to set AAM (Automatic Acoustic Management) on modern hard disks. It works only
on NT class operating systems. I'm not sure if it works on NT too, but it works for sure on Win2K.
Unzip, run and then use the integrated facility to send me the report.
Please, send me reports even from systems where it doesn't seem to work.
Version 1.01 now properly identifies hards disks where AAM is available, yet disabled, and goes on
with the test.
Program to access SCSI HD temperature and reliability data 1.13 (18 feb 2004)
Even if, since version 4.21, SpeedFan includes full support for SCSI drives, this tool is still useful as
it allows me to see more data from SCSI drives. With the help of your reports I can try to find and show
new info about your SCSI drives.
This tool never caused any harm to any system and its low level code was included in the mainstream release
