I made new kext as an addition to HWSensors v3.3.

Compatibility with OS 10.6 - 10.10

Currently it show only CPU temperature. May be later I make voltage and frequencies. Voluntaries welcomed.


I am not sure with kozlek's project compatibility. Test with precations.

(kozlek's version is not newer. It is a branch with own enumeration)


Manual testing without installation:

sudo -s
chown -R root:wheel ~/Downloads/AmdCPUMonitor.kext
chmod -R 755 ~/Downloads/AmdCPUMonitor.kext
kextutil -v ~/Downloads/AmdCPUMonitor.kext

This kext v1.0 attachicon.gifAmdCPUMonitor.kext.zip

Other files in the project (don't install all of them! For example you don't need IntelCPUMonitor)



New FakeSMC with Illumination version in System Profiler and no warnings in kernel.log


Minimum set includes FakeSMC+HWInfo



Recommended installation (I have no installer so I propose you will use Terminal.app)

sudo -s
cp -r -v ~/Downloads/HWSensors/AmdCPUMonitor.kext /System/Library/Extensions/

and so on for all kexts that will have a sense for you

So I tried to install it but installation fails due to some error. But I can still see new HWMonitorSMC app installed. But it show only Hard disk temp nothing else. More over Now I have started to freez during restart and my external hdd is now being recognized as Read Only.

How do I uninstall it now?
