Video conversions make my computer pretty hot, so I use CPUSetter to tame the ffmpeg component. Great!

Hey, do you think you could make something like gfxCardStatus, but works with 2012 rMBP on Mojave? gfxCardStatus won't stay set and everything freezes for a second when it switches between integrated and discrete now.

Like it, it allows me to mitigate a thermal problem at the secondary heatsink by toning down the workload of my 2010 i5 iMac. Buying a new iMac later in the year. This app allows me to extend the life of the present iMac:)
