I run SpeedFan in Windows 7 Professional (32-bit) and found some log files in C:\Program Files\SpeedFan named SFLog20110717-0001.csv through SFLog20110717-0009.csv. I opened them, hoping to see a log of temperatures, but all I found was a single column of large numbers as seen below.

How can I see a log of temperatures?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

It's unclear what you're asking here. What is your question? Do you want to know what the log file means? Do you want to create a graph of your system temperature? – Darth Android Jul 17 '11 at 18:13
Apparently it wasn’t that unclear. ;-) – Synetech Jul 18 '11 at 0:34

The log you have listed shows the time (in seconds). It’s logging to the file every three seconds (though that last one skipped a second, probably because the system was under load at that moment). You have logging enabled, but have not selected any specific values to be logged.

Open SpeedFan and click Configure click on each item in the Temperatures, Fans, and Voltages tabs and click the Logged button for the ones that you want logged (or clear it if you don’t). Then click the Log tab and click the check-box if you want logging, or clear it if you don’t.
