Fan Control like speedfan program necessary for OC?

I'm about to put a new rig together and am wondering about fan control.

On my current machine I tried speedfan, but it doesn't recognize all the fans and I can't get it to control the ones it does recognize. I actually had some success with the pre-installed "nvidia performance" tool and was able to crank up my CPU cooloer fan and the 120mms in front.

Should I be using something like speedfan on my soon to be rig? I'm going to be working on an ASUS P7P55D-E Pro mobo and trying to OC the i5-760.

Thanks

  1. Speedfan is unecessary. I find that it is an aging program and isn't compatible with many motherboards.

    You don't really need it unless you want to slow down your fans because they are loud.
