MenuTemperature

1.5.3
08 December 2006

CPU temp monitor for G4/G5/Intel machines.

Overview

MenuTemperature is a small utility for continuously measuring your computer's CPU temperature and frequency. It provides averages, minimums and maximums as well, and lets you set the interval at which gauging takes place. Current values are displayed prominently in the menu bar, as a status item, although you can decrease the font size if you find it too distracting, or if it simply takes away too much space. Either Celsius or Fahrenheit values can be displayed.

I am very pleased with this app. It integrates very nicely with my system (just a clean little menu bar), and I like the fact that you can change the information displayed in the menu bar to the utmost degree (you can display just icons for a "clean" look, or text for more info). I got it when my mac was having fan issues, and it actually helped me diagnose the problem that the apple technicians could not solve (actually, it was an Apple certified repair facility, not the Apple Store - my first mistake). Anyway, the fan was running, but the temperature was not increasing. This app helped me figure that out. It turns out that when they did the work, they did not re-attach the wire to the fan. Simple fix! Now, I use this program to quickly monitor my computers' stats.

Once again, this is a parked site. Domain for sale. Shame really.

What exactly is a supported machine? My G4 Powerbook isn't supported, or is claimed not to be supported by the software when I attempt to run it. Is this correct because you officially don't support this laptop, or is this an error?

some time ago I tried it and it showed wrong numbers on a G5/Quad. After a long time I tried the latest version and everything I get is: 2006-11-12 20:30:29.733 MenuTemperature[10926] An uncaught exception was raised 2006-11-12 20:30:29.733 MenuTemperature[10926] *** -[NSCFArray objectAtIndex:]: index (0) beyond bounds (0) 2006-11-12 20:30:29.733 MenuTemperature[10926] *** Uncaught exception: *** -[NSCFArray objectAtIndex:]: index (0) beyond bounds (0) Nov 12 20:30:31 NanJing crashdump[10927]: MenuTemperature crashed Nov 12 20:30:31 NanJing crashdump[10927]: crash report written to: /Users/silverdr/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/MenuTemperature.crash.log That's it.

Just installed on my MacBook Pro 10.4.8 and so far works very well. Temperatures changes from 65 to 70°C on normal actibity with highs of 78°C when requesting more from processor, what seems to be a little bit too hot, but that's actually what my MBP fells like, very hot, specially on the left hand side speaker.

Try FanControl to lower your Macbook Pro's temperature. http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/23137

I love this app. Works flawlessly for me. The changes in 1.5 are very welcomed also.

The "stable" version never went beyond "please wait" with all menu items greyed out. The beta hangs my machine for up to 10 seconds every time it "checks" the temperature. This seems to rely on that #$@!$ing "SpeedIt" extension. STEER CLEAR.

I'd love to not use SpeedIt. Unfortunately, on Intel Macs, Apple does not provide an interface to access the necessary data - they did on PowerPC Macs (through the IO Registry). Alternatives to SpeedIt are generally poorly documented.

Great application but the AuthHelper is a no-no. Get rid of it and I will download and use MenuTemperature again!

You'll be happy to hear that 1.5 does not have an AuthHelper at all any more (which was always a temporary solution, and not one I was happy with), and is generally written in a much more reliable way. :-)

I tried menu Temperature on my Mac Book Pro (10.4.5). After installation always at startup an annoying AuthHelper message came at startup (at first I did not know which program it came from), where I had to enter my password. After upgrading to Tiger 10.4.7, if I entered my password, then the system slowed to almost a standstill, making it impossible to work on my machine. If I cancelled the AuthHelper message without entering the password, my system worked perfectly. I urgently suggest you should get rid of this useless AuthHelper application.
