Chassis and Pump Fans Not Displayed Alienware R11

Hi, new here and just downloaded the trial version of AIDA64 Extreme.  Wanted to make sure it will display the sensor data I'm interested in before purchase.  I can see my GPU fan speeds, but no display for chassis fans or the CPU cooler pump fan.  I've attached an ISA Sensor Dump.  Perhaps there is something I missed in my initial AIDA64 setup.  Thank you!

I'm afraid currently we have no technical information or guidelines on how to read the motherboard fan RPM's on your particular system :(

OK, thank you for the reply!  I guess in addition to AIDA64, I can run HWinfo (displays chassis and pump fan speeds on my Aurora R11) minimalized and set an audible rpm alarm.

We may have found the way to read fan RPM's on your particular system.  Please try the latest beta version of AIDA64 Extreme available at:

https://www.aida64.com/downloads/latesta64xebeta

After upgrading to this new version, make sure to restart Windows to finalize the upgrade.

Let me know how it works ;)

Thank you very much for pursuing this - it works!  Unfortunately, I noticed a small performance issue when monitoring the chassis and pump fans.  If I'm playing MS Flight Simulator, I get microstutters about every second when AIDA64 is monitoring those fans.  If I use the previous version that doesn't monitor the fans, 6.60.5900, I have no microstutters.

After some troubleshooting, I noticed the same behavior if I use HWInfo and monitor the chassis and pump fans.  HWInfo pops up a warning if I want to monitor those sensors.  It says "Access Embedded Controllers when supported.  This option can cause stability or performance problems on some machines when enabled."

I suspect the Dell implementation of Embedded Controllers is causing the microstutters when I choose to monitor the chassis/CPU fans.  I guess I will not monitor those fans and just continue to monitor temps for the CPU and GPU.

Once again, thank you for your efforts!
