RTX 4060 No-Fan


New Member
I recently got myself a Nvidia Geforce RTX 4060 and updated the HWinfo from 6.42 to 7.60
First of all, I was using a GT 710 so not needed the fan... But then I had to update (more on that 12hr limit) because 4060 was not recognised by HWinfo.
Now, I can't get the fan info, its showing 0 (yes I put the card to the load , games / video etc) for both % and the RPM.
Does anybody know what I am doing wrong here?

EDIT: I got the fans to work, it was a typo..!!

Also, if I understand correctly, just to "continue" having the GPU data reported by HWinfo, I have to pay $29per year or one-time $89... Am I the only one that thinks this is quite expensive?
Thanks all...

The Pro version is required if you want HWiNFO to export data into other applications via Shared Memory for more than 12 hours.
The subscription is $29 for first year, then subsequent years are with 50% discount.
My 2-cents.

I think the 12-hour limit for Shared Memory Support was added because people were using HWINFO and Shared Memory Support in commercial applications and not buying the proper license. Martin rightfully added this restriction to curb this abuse. It is unfortunate that we all now have to pay for this feature because some people chose to abuse it. If you don't want or need Shared Memory Support, you can use HWINFO for free.

I have a rather complex custom cooling loop. I use HWINFO to monitor my system sensors and import the data into Aquasuite. This is required for my cooling system to function properly. Aquasuite can monitor some sensors directly, but it is not the main focus of the program. Its sensor polling is limited, and it does not report some data that I need. I also don't trust that Aquasuite monitors all sensors properly. HWINFO's primary purpose is to monitor sensors. Aquasuite's primary purpose is to control cooling loop components. Both programs are very good at what they do, so I use each one for what it's best at doing. Shared Memory makes this possible. I am happy to pay for a license so I can use this feature, and I know that HWINFO will always be promptly updated to support new hardware and quickly resolve bugs.

HWINFO has been updated at least 34 times so far this year. Aquasuite has been updated 9 times, and some of those updates had nothing to do with sensor polling. I am not knocking Aquasuite. It's a great program for controlling cooling loop components, but sensor polling is not its primary focus. If you can find another program that does what HWINFO does, is constantly updated to support the latest hardware, and has the ability to export sensor data to other programs, for less money, go for it. I suspect you will not find one.
