    Solved! If I were to uninstall Speedfan, would the fan controls restart to default?

    I haven't actually touched the program beyond just checking Automatic Fan Speeds and then unchecking it five minutes later, so I doubt I altered any sort of fan settings, but if I did, does uninstalling them negate those settings or would my computer keep it?
