I want to introduce new "old" opensource fakemsc project with hardware monitoring plugins with new GUI utility - HWMonitor. Please, leave requests and issues on project's home on GitHub: https://github.com/kozlek/HWSensors Use GitHab utility or other git tool to clone repository on your computer. Project includes sources, installer and compiled binaries. If you want manually install kexts they are located in "Binaries" folder. Installer package located in "Installer" folder. Project will not be in existence without revolutional SMC emulator (fakesmc) by netkas. Special thanks to slice and user-sse2 for plugins. Big part of this project based on OpenHardwareMonitor opensource project by Michael Möller.

I've searched in a few places, and it may just be my wording, but I can't find anything telling me exactly what I want to know. So forgive me if this has been asked before! I am mostly curious if running on Mountain Lion, my desktop will still have it's temperature safety features? I know Windows machines use the BIOS for fan controls right? So if I was in Windows 7, and the temps ever got too hot, the machine would shut itself off before causing damage? If I understand right, real macs use SMC for this? I never really checked my temps running under Windows. I could always hear the fans kick up if I ever did anything really processor/graphics intensive, so I just never thought about it. But I've noticed under OS X, my machine never turns the fans up at all really. I've attached a photo of what my temps are under normal circumstances/idle. But every once in a while when I do something fairly intensive, the temps shoot up very high, and the fans never seem to change speed. So what I am wondering, is if first of all, should they ever get dangerously high on the processor or graphics card, will the normal safeguards keep things from getting damaged? And second, is there something I can do to make it so that the fans come on as they should? I've read about people working on the DSDT but I don't have one (or at least if all hacks have one, I never modified it) so I am not sure how to proceed. Thanks!
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 AmdCPUMonitor.kext.zip Other files in the project (don't install all of them! For example you don't need IntelCPUMonitor) FakeSMC_plugins_746.zip New FakeSMC with Illumination version in System Profiler and no warnings in kernel.log FakeSMC.kext_Illumination.zip 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 ACPIMonitor.kext - for devices in DSDT. Only for advanced users! AmdCPUMonitor.kext - temperature for AMD CPU Andigilog.kext - for andigilog chip. Found on some Intel motherboard AnalogDevices.kext - for chips like ADT7470-7475 F718x.kext - for Fintek chip FakeSMC.kext - obligatory for any Hackintosh GeforceSensor.kext - for new NVidia Geforce cards HWInfo.kext - if you use Clover bootloader ICHSMBus.kext - an addition for Andigilog.kext IntelCPUMonitor.kext - temperature, voltage and frequencies for Intel CPU up to Haswell ITEIT87x.kext - for ITE chip, found on most Gigabyte motherboards NuvotonNCT677x.kext - for Nuvotone chip, found on new ASUS motherboards NVClockX.kext - for old NVidia cards PC8739x.kext - for NSC chip, found on Dell Inspiron only RadeonMonitor.kext - for Radeon videocard HD4000+ W836x.kext - for Winbond chips found on old ASUS motherboards X3100.kext - for Intel X3100 (GM965 chip) Monitor application to be used HWMonitor.app_731.zip New version andigilog.kext supports EMC6D103 chip. Advantages: - no spam in system.log - CPU usage only 0.1% - no panics - supported wide range of chips. Sources are available here https://www.assembla.com/code/fakesmc/subversion/nodes/738/HWSensors
