Design aesthetics aside, limited space in a modern computer means heat, and heat means fans, and fans mean noise, and lower battery life. Here’s the app for the Mac geek who has everything; including a hot, noisy Mac which can be made cool again.
It’s easy to figure out why Apple doesn’t have something like Temperature Gauge Pro already installed on OS X. Apple likes simplicity. Apps for Mac geeks– especially those who want to muck around with fans and sensors– are complex.
And a whole lotta fun.
Temperature Gauge Pro checks all the sensors in your Mac, reviews current and maximum recorded temperatures, and gives you controls for the fans– like the Auto Boost feature for maximum speed, maximum cooling.
View all the sensors on your Mac with a click, or choose to monitor details on CPU, battery, hard disk drive (or built-in SSD), main logic board, RAM, and even the Mac notebook’s palm rest area.
Temperatures can be view in Celsius or Fahrenheit for each of the Mac’s many sensors. Temperature Gauge Pro comes with options to view internal fan speeds and control each one.
The Mac’s Menubar icon displays everything you need with a click. If your Mac gets too hot you’ll get a notification. This is the app you want just to make sure all the fans and sensors on your Mac work properly.
Temperature Gauge Pro monitors sensors and fans in all recent Mac models, from Mac mini to Mac Pro, as well as the Mac notebook line and iMac. The app is a geek’s paradise but simple enough for users new to the Mac to setup and run. This one is a favorite and a must-have utility.
