New SpeedFan v.4.10 release

From: ... opic=38043
What it does:

SpeedFan is a freeware program that monitors fan speeds, temperatures and voltages in computers with hardware monitoring chips. SpeedFan can even access S.M.A.R.T. info for those hard disks that support this feature (almost all :-)) and show hard disk temperatures too, if supported. SpeedFan can even change the FSB on some motherboards. At the lowest level, SpeedFan is an hardware monitoring software, but its main feature is that it can control the speed of the fans (depending on your sensor chip) according to the temperatures inside your pc, thus reducing noise and power consumption. Most Winbond sensors and ASUS AS99127F support fan speed changing, as well as others from MYSON, ANALOG DEVICES, NATIONAL SEMICONDUCTORS and ITE, but the motherboard should make use of available pins. This means that if you have, say, a W83782D on a BP6 then you're ok. If you have a W83782D on some GigaByte's... you're not :-)
SpeedFan works fine with Win9x, WinME, WinNT, Win2k and WinXP.
SpeedFan can be minimized to the tray and is compatible with Motherboard Monitor 5.

Hmmm. I've been trying to use Speedfan but it just doesn't seem to play nice with S3(STR) power management.

It works fine when I boot the PC from cold, varying the fan speeds as I'd wish it to. Whenever I resume from standby it seems to lose it's marbles and think all the temperatures are -1C, and consequently just slaps the fans on full 100%-with-afterburners, nitro and reheat.

This is on an ASUS board the A7N8X-VM. Anyone else had this problem, not had this problem? :?
