The interface of SpeedFan is very simple, and the amount of information is well valued for those hardware enthusiasts that like to force the speed of the microprocessor, improve the RAM memory latency or manage to make the chipset a lot more functional.
Thanks to SpeedFan we will also be able to modify some parameters of the motherboard (if it is compatible), thus gaining further reassurance when it comes to maximizing the performance of our PC. It's possible to modify the speed of the bus that communicates the processor and the memory, or modify other aspects that directly affect the performance of the CPU.
