Istat menus with the appropriate fakesmc plugins.

There's no GPU monitoring in Bresink's I think.

That's right, but the history graph of core temperatures with this one is really nice, especially when stress testing etc.

I use the lite version myself (menu bar) to keep tabs on CPU temps. It works fine alongside the iStat Menus widget in both Snow Leopard and Lion.

Nice! Did you have to do anything to get the GPU sensor? Any fakesmc plugins?

Yes, GPU temp with FakeSMCnVclockPort.kext v1.0.2 and CPU with FakeSMCIntelMonitor.kext v2.1
also mac model needs to be set to MB5.2 or 5.1

Well that's a no go for me then, but thanks for sharing.

EDIT, July 2012

Bresink's Temperature Monitor now shows GPU temp with kozlek's HWSensors plugins. Still using MacPro3,1.
