MacBook :: GPU Temperature Monitoring?

May 25, 2010

I know iStat Pro and iStat Menus can monitor the CPU temperature, but I was wondering if there's any way to monitor the GPU temperature. I've been playing StarCraft II, and my CPU temperature has been getting to 80, which I guess is common with MacBooks, but I want to see if my GPU goes critical.

IMac :: Best Temperature Monitoring Widget - Any Recommendations?

Mar 21, 2009

Looking for a recommendation on temperature widget. This new i5 is too hot to the touch on the top. Well I could hold my hand there but it is not fun to do so. So I want a good widget/etc that will give me an idea of how hot it really is. On a side note. I cannot hear the drive or fans in my new i5. For wow players, all options (including full shadows but no full screen bloom), it bottoms out around 27fps in heavy effects environments or fast spin in busy Dalaran.

Peaks are beyond refresh (in fact I may want to cap that). After a three hour session the top portion of the aluminum enclosure was too hot to keep my hand pressed to it so I am looking for something to convince myself I am not going to end up with a cooked iMac in a few weeks. Since my desk is in the center of the room there is no problem with air flow but I don't want to have to run the ceiling fan.

Applications :: Different Temperature Readings In IStat And Temperature Monitor?

Jan 4, 2011

I noticed that iStat and Temperature Monitor report different temperatures for the same readings on my G5 Powermac Dual Processor System. For example as I am writing this Temperature Monitor is saying My CPU A is 46.8C and CPU B is 46.7C. In iStat it says CPU A is 55C and CPU B is 54C. Which is right!?

Hardware :: What Is Average Temperature CPU Temperature For Standard Usage?

Feb 19, 2009

I apologists straight away if this have been covered recently, but i need to ask.I have MacBook with Intel Core Due Processor, 2 GB ram.What is the average temperature CPU temperature for standard usage ( I know that standard usage is very arbitrary, and by this I assume safari, iTunes and let say Pages to be the only major apps running ).I use iStat pro widget and according to it my CPU temperature is 55*C. Is this too high? Lately the fan has been turning on more recently almost without any apps running so I think that there might be some hardware problem. I ran HardwareTest it found nothing.

The macbook is 2 yrs old. Do i need to get it cleaned or is there something else I should be worrying about?

MacBook :: Monitoring Video Through Firewire Port Possible?

Jul 20, 2009

I have cable TV streaming in through my Firewire port. What is a good program for viewing it? So today I decided to run a cable from our TV room to my laptop desk so I can watch "educational" programming. But I ran into a small problem:
CableVision to old VCR so I can make use of its built-in tuner, RCA cables from VCR to ADS (Converts inputs to RCA & Firewire out), and Firewire from ADS to MacBook.

This all works fine but I then realized I have no decent program to watch the video on. I can open Quicktime and see a small window, and no doubt if I hit record the sound would be captured as well but the sound is not audible while monitoring. I tried iMovie and again had a small window to watch. Still not what I want. So what can I use to watch the video from my Firewire full screen and with sound?

OS X :: Remote Access & Monitoring?

Jan 13, 2011

So two questions (I will try to write out as best as I can, hopefully it's understandable).

1: Is it possible that while I am on a business trip with my laptop that if I needed to access my network at work that I can remotely access it to view computers on the network with abilities to grab files from a computer, check things / alter things, and maintain. If so how?

2: If someone is on my network is it possible to see what traffic they are bringing in or out of my network without installing a file on their pc / mac to know the site they entered, file download, etc.

Applications :: Monitoring Webpages For Changes?

Nov 25, 2008

I was wondering if anyone knows of a good app for the Mac that will monitor a given web page for any changes in content and immediately send an email or other alert letting me know. I don't care so much about the particular changes, just the fact that a change was made.

I was looking at Web Secretary, but it's a *nix app that doesn't have a GUI and I'm not entirely sure it would do what I need. I would rather have something a bit more user-friendly anyway, and preferably free.

I've heard good things about iBank (, but does anyone have any experience or recommendations? I really just haven't found an efficient way to download my online statements (OFX file support), categorize them, and view them in a line graph.

OS X :: Any Bandwidth Monitoring Widget That Not Reset On Bootup

Apr 30, 2009

I'm just wondering if there is a bandwidth monitor widget that doesn't reset itself on a reboot. I feel like I've tried hundreds from the Apple widget download page, but all reset themselves. It's not vital that I know how much bandwidth I use as I've got unlimited broadband, but it would be interesting to see how much I get through in a week/month/year.

Is there a monitor that will allow you to view the bandwidth on an IP address you specify? I want to be able to monitor all traffic coming in and out of my router, but I can't find an App that does this either. All they monitor is my local IP address 192.XXX.XXX.XXX (Specific to my iMac). I have a static IP address with my broadband so can I monitor traffic flowing through that? Or would I just need to monitor the routers network and/or broadcast address?

OS X :: Update Downloading Start Without Permission - Monitoring Possible

Nov 5, 2009

Recently I've been frustrated by having Mac OS X automatically downloading all software updates without asking. Sometimes I am on an internet connection where my downloading is limited and I don't want to be wasting the bandwidth on multiple updates that I don't need that urgently. I feel like earlier versions of OS X never started downloading the update without your permission to start the updating process. Is there anyway to ensure that the OS doesn't perform such tasks without having to resort turning off my wireless? I'm running 10.5.6 on a MacBook.

Applications :: Multiple Ip Camera Monitoring Software?

Nov 5, 2009

I setup ip cameras for a lot of my clients, not to mention the ones around my own spaces, but I use a mac at home and the software that I use for them is Windows only.

I'm trying to find something worth while that will let me view the multiple ip cameras at once, just grid up the monitor basically.

I've seen EvoCam from [URL], but it doesn't appear to be true multiple cam like i'm looking for, you basically have to open each camera in a separate window and arrange them on the screen each time.

I'm looking for something a little more "once i've set it, that's how it is everytime."

Software :: Any Network Utility For Monitoring Incoming Connections?

Jun 4, 2009

I have someone monitoring my outgoing internet connections. That person sends pings, knows my logs and IP addresses I connect with, Skype is of his highest interest. Is there any way to protect myself from people monitoring what I do and what websites I visit? Or at least to know WHEN I am being watched? Is Network Utility of any help?

Is so, how to interpret it? I don't know much about MacBook, I was a Windows person till July. I had Tor, Privoxy and NetShield installed but it's a bit fussy and slows the connection. I have a MacBook with Intel 2.1 GHz processor, Leopard 10.5.6 OS and Safari 4 beta (552816). I use a wireless internet connection via a USB modem (Huawei E220). That person uses a PC with Windows XP.

Applications :: Network Monitoring Software For Wireless Internet Connection?

Apr 29, 2005

At home I have about four laptops and one desktop computers. All of them use a wireless connection to connect to the internet. Sometimes, one of my siblings is downloading something huge or is downloading torrents or what not and it cripples the speed for the rest of us.

I also can't see if someone has managed to crack my WEP password and is using my connection (a neighbor or someone). Is there freeware that tells me who is connected to my network and how much traffic or data they are using?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Grey Screen Startup Due To Path Monitoring?

Feb 2, 2012

I have a mac pro running 10.6.6. Occaisionally startup gets stuck at a grey screen and requires a hard reboot or two. I've not found any correlation between what is plugged into the mac or not plugged in and the successful or unsuccessful startup. It just appears random. I've begun studying the console for anything that might indicate what's going on when this happens. One thing I notice is the following line: 2/2/12 8:37:31[134]( Path monitoring failed on "/Volumes/LittleWet_02/SFX_aiff": No such file or directory 

This line was the last line in the console before the hard reboot a few times, suggesting it might be the culprit. The volume it is looking for is an external HD that was connected to this computer once almost a year ago and never again. I can't determine what startup process is looking for that SFX_aiff directory, or why. Is there any way to tell this system to cease looking for that volume upon startup?  

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

MacBook Pro :: CPU Temperature Is Hitting 80c?

Dec 16, 2010

So I recently bought myself a Macbook Pro 2006 Model 15". And the idea was, buy it second hand and get the fan fixed totally the price of 600$. Which is great, because it works and things are fine.

But why is it that when I'm on Facebook on either Opera or Safari? My temp hits 80c. I've called up the Mac Store here in Ireland. They asked me to use iStat Pro to find out my temperatures. So I have, and all my temperatures are fine (around 30-50c) but my CPU temperature is hitting 80c.Honestly, this is quite scary to see that a computer I've bought hits 80c when I browse the internet?

Mac Os X 10.5.8
Processor: 2GHz Intel Core Duo
Memory: 2GB 677MHz DDR2 SDRAM
Macbook Pro 15"

I'm getting fed up with dealing with the Mac Store, if you guys know what I need to do to fix this problem? I'll open it myself, and fix it.

MacBook Air :: What Is The Acceptable CPU Temperature On The Air?

Feb 26, 2008

I have just brought the 1.8GHz + SSD version. It's really fast and quiet, until the fan spinning like crazy.

What is the acceptable CPU temperature on the Air?

Mine got up 89 degree C (192.2 F) MAX for a while, when the heat-sink is at much lower temperature, like 60-ish. Can't remember what tasks it was doing. It's 54 right now just with the Websites running, and the heat-sink is at 43.

Is it normal? Or should I worry about the thermopaste on the machine?

MacBook Pro :: How To Cool Down GPU Temperature

Sep 6, 2009

I happen to have a Late 2007 MacBook Pro (The specs are in my signature). My model was also the one affected by the 8600Gt issue so I had taken to a nearby Apple Reseller in Dubai in 2008. It's been months since that happened.

However, I've been monitoring my CPU & GPU temperatures and I'm still confused about what is ideal and if I should be worried about anything.

(I took a screenshot of my iStat readings and there's a difference of atleast 11C between the GPU Diode and GPU Heatsink)

Is there anything alarming that I should be worried about?

MacBook Pro :: Fan On But Temperature Will Not Drop

Oct 13, 2009

I'm using SMC Fan Control and it constantly hovers around 55-58 degree. Once it hits 60's the fan will bump to 6000+ rpm but will not drop. Even with light work load (Firefox, Adium, iTunes) temperature doesn't drop even when the fan is at 6000rpm until I close everything. Is this normal?
