    Lost CPU Fan Speed Sensor Reading

    The fans feature in the new beta looks great, thanks! I tested whether manual hiding takes precedence, and whether manual hiding is sticky, and the beta passed both tests. I manually hid my unused fan sensor, and the fan sensor for my "often 0 rpm" external fan is displayed as desired. You...

    Lost CPU Fan Speed Sensor Reading

    I hope you didn't mean the literal interpretation of "all fans will be treated the same," because the literal interpretation would be too extreme. Manual hiding of individual fans should take precedence over the "show all fans" setting. (And of course, the manual hiding should be "sticky"...

    Lost CPU Fan Speed Sensor Reading

    That sounds good, but what will happen if the user selects the new "Show all fans" option and also manually configures HWiNFO to hide a fan sensor that has no fan attached? Will HWiNFO remember that the user hid that sensor, and override the "show all fans" option for that sensor? I think this...

    Lost CPU Fan Speed Sensor Reading

    Thanks! When HWiNFO chooses not to display the 0 rpm fan sensor, an undesirable side effect is that it also forgets the layout position where I had placed the fan sensor (next to the sensors of the external drive that the external fan cools). I assume a beneficial side effect of the new 0 rpm...

    Lost CPU Fan Speed Sensor Reading

    It's imprecise to say HWiNFO would always list a bunch of fans that aren't connected. As I wrote, the user can hide those sensors to stop them from being listed. I believe it's undesirable for HWiNFO to behave as though fans are definitely not connected when that's false. HWiNFO fails to...

    Lost CPU Fan Speed Sensor Reading

    I noticed a similar behavior with HWiNFO, and it appears to depend on whether the fan speed was 0 rpm when HWiNFO launched. I have an external fan cabled to motherboard fan header Sys 2, and HWiNFO usually displays it okay. But I run software -- a combination of Rem0o's FanControl app, which...

    crucial mx500 TBW not accurate

    I get it. You must be referring to the Total_LBAs_Written SMART attribute: Assuming one LBA is 512 bytes, that equals 6,502 GB written. And presumably it means written by the host. Thanks for clearing up my confusion! HWiNFO might be able to automatically compensate for the truncation by...

    crucial mx500 TBW not accurate

    Here are excerpts of the output of 'smartctl -x c:' related to Total Host Reads and Total Host Writes: If the three values in blue reported by smartctl are taken at face value, calculations would imply Total Host Reads is 670.8 GB and Total Host Writes is 358.9 GB: 1,406,829,912 x 512 bytes /...

    Feature request: Independent settings for logging: log interval, and which sensors get logged

    For several reasons, I don't think that suggestion satisfies my request: 1. To test your suggestion, I set "Disk S.M.A.R.T. every" to 20, to see whether data would be appended to the log file every 40 seconds. But it continued to append every 2 seconds. "Polling rate" is not the same as logging...

    Feature request: Independent settings for logging: log interval, and which sensors get logged

    Hi, I like that HWiNFO updates its Sensors display frequently (every 2000 milliseconds) and displays so much data. But I'd like to have independent settings for the data logging function, so that I can (for example) log the S.M.A.R.T. data of my ssd drive every two hours (in csv format or some...

    crucial mx500 TBW not accurate

    I had already unchecked "Show System Summary on Startup." That's what I meant when I wrote above that "I re-edited the settings by unchecking the Summary checkbox." I'm not sure it had saved the checkbox change to the .INI file. I remember needing to manually edit the .INI file afterward...

    Thank you so much for looking into the issue! Regarding what I meant when I wrote about not being able to remove Main and Summary from the tray icon's pop-up menu: The menu showed only Sensors, Settings and Quit before I edited the settings to launch Summary too. After I re-edited the...

    My Crucial MX500 ssd (500GB 2.5" form factor) has a problem that seems similar to the original poster's problem... maybe the same problem. I'm running HWiNFO64 v6.22-4060. Here are some values logged over the last few days: Date Time Total Host Reads (GB) (from HWiNFO Sensors) Total Host...
