The Fan CPU is a desktop gadget that displays basic information about the CPU as well as the CPU cooler. Such gadgets were very popular at the time of the widespread adoption of Windows Vista and Windows 7. In later versions of its operating system, Microsoft declined to support them. However, this support can be added by third party programs. Personally, we recommend using 8GadgetPack. Once installed, you will be able to add new gadgets to your desktop by double-clicking on the ".gadget" files.

So, with the installation of the Fan CPU on Windows 8 and 10 we've figured it out, now we'll move on to the information this gadget offers. It allows you to know the load on each of the cores, their current temperature, as well as the speed of rotation of the cooler. Unfortunately, it is not possible to adjust the speed of rotation depending on the temperature of the cores, for this please contact specialized programs such as SpeedFan or the BIOS control panel.

The CPU Fan software provides real-time monitoring of CPU load, temperature, and cooler speed, aiding in efficient system performance management.

In the Fan CPU settings, you can enable or disable the display of data for specific cores. There are also a couple of gadget appearance settings: adding shadows and choosing the degree of transparency. The developer warns that both available customization parameters can increase the load on the processor and thereby slow down the computer. This statement is true only for very old computers, on modern machines the performance drop will be insignificant. Generally speaking, the Fan CPU itself looks a little archaic, and on screens with high DPI may suffer from a strong "pixelization".

- Display of information about the load on each processor core;

- the temperature and speed of the cooler;

- the basic parameters for customizing the appearance, such as adding shadows and adjusting the degree of transparency;

- built-in compatibility with Windows Vista and Windows 7;

- Select the information displayed in the settings menu.

I recently used CPU Fan software to optimize the performance of my laptop. I found the interface to be user friendly and the software was quite easy to navigate. It allowed me to view my CPU temperature and monitor the speed of my fan. I was pleased to find that I could adjust the fan speed to my liking with just a few clicks. I was also able to set up automatic fan speed adjustments with the software. Overall, the software was quite effective and did a good job of keeping my CPU temperature in check. I also noticed that it was very lightweight and did not have much of an impact on my system's performance.

I have used CPU Fan software for a few months now and I have found that it is easy to use, with a simple and intuitive interface. It provides a good overview of the temperature of the CPU and is able to report when the temperature is too high. The software also offers some customization options which I found helpful in optimizing my system performance.
