    Individual packages are a better choice.
    And that "Critical Service" message wont show up or will show up less often.

    I forgot to tell you, I noticed something weird.

    I had Clevo Service on disabled startup since I tried the new fan control since I went back to the old gear, but I was getting the same typing lag every now and then (in particular, it was in Twitch tv sites and on Discord) after a few days. I deleted the service and rebooted (I'd rebooted more than once before) and the issue went away again. I don't know what the cause could be since it (to my knowledge) didn't do anything in games, but it was the same issue I had when control station ran.

    I don't know if this is useful information or if you could find a fix somewhere, but still reporting it nonetheless.

    Can you try the latest 0.3.3 and ckeck if it solves that?

    Thanks, John. I just made the switch.

    Is there any software you recommend to show the current temps in a widget or task tray (similar to SpeedFan)? Alternatively, is it possible to implement a Fan Control widget that displays temps and fan speeds?

    Thanks!

    Control Station will soon have a third widget for Temperatures and Load. Would that work? A simple desktop widget?

    Yes, I think so. I wonder if, similar to SpeedFan, the tray icon could be modified to display the hottest element (GPU / CPU) instead of the active fan mode.

    Alternately, do you know if using Rainmeter to display something similar to the Control Station widget would interfere with Fan Control?

    All of that seems easy to do.
    As for Rainmeter i would have to make some sort of plugin to get data from my app right?

    Re: Rainmeter, not necessarily. There are apps that already read and display the information, and I wouldn't ask you to do more specialized app work.

    I was more asking about a potential conflict for apps that are accessing the same information because I think I've read earlier in this thread that this has caused performance issues.

    The only thing you should avoid at all costs is apps that talk to the EC chip, which to my understanding only HWinfo is doing to query the fan speed.
    Everything else usually uses Ring0 methods for CPU stuff and Nvidia API for GPU temp/load, so those should be fine.
